Robby McDonald
Robby McDonaldOwner

Robby is lucky enough to be a second generation Surf Board Manufacturer and Surf Shop Owner.

Surfing is in his family’s blood. His father Ian McDonald was one of the founders of the Gunston 500 Surfing Competition. He also pioneered the first Surf Shop in Durban – Surf Centre.

His uncle, Rod McDonald, is the top Surfboard foam blower in South Africa.

Robby’s love and knowledge of the ocean and surfing has afforded him the ability to make the surf lifestyle his passion and career. Vudu Surf was established in 2000 and has been providing quality products and service to the Cape Town surf community ever since.

I work closely with Vudu Surfboards in Cape Town. Where I have developed models and designs for Vudu and personally shaped more than 4000 Vudu surfboards.  I have learnt a huge amount from Robby McDonald, who has had a big influence on my overall shaping skills. I have shaped around 7000 boards over the years.
