Murray Smith – one of the most well-known surfing identities of Western Australia – started his own shaping business in a side room of his parents’ beachfront home in Scarborough. Relocating in the 1970s to his garage, Murray Smith Surf quickly took off the ground, and since the 80s, everyone who knows the name would head to his family-run business for all their surfing needs.
