The sad news of the passing of renowned surfboard shaper Marc Spowart came as a shock yesterday, adding a dose of sadness to the festive season. Marc’s untimely death sees another of SA’s finest craftsman depart our world, following Errol Hickman’s passing in early November.
A Bluff local and a standout when Cave Rock was doing it’s thing, Marc has left behind a lasting impression on those that knew him.
“RIP Marc Spowart! You shaped me some of my best boards! My thoughts go out to your family…” wrote former team rider Dale Staples.
Spowy’s shapes and sense of humour will be sorely missed by the South African surfing family.
