Peter “Mo” Moschogianis is one of the unsung heroes of the surfboard industry “Your Glasser” These are the guys who build a board, make it look good , feel good and last a lifetime.Peter has a vast knowledge in laminating and building surfcraft of all kinds with a very interesting background working with a number of well known shapers through the years. This started with Tom Morey at Morey Pope Surfboards, Ventura, California in 1965. While working at Morey Pope he met and began to work with Bob Cooper, George Greenough, John Peck, Richard Deese, Michael Cundith and Richie West. It was at this time that he first met Bob McTavish, Nat Young, Darryl “Rooster” Dell and Russel Hughes. Mo then moved on to Wilderness Surfboards in Santa Barbara with the original crew of Greenough, Cundith , West.
Thousands of hours standing and many miles walked in a small shop. Up and down laminating and sanding.
His 54 years in the industry has obviously meant that he has seen it all and worked in all sorts of situations and with all sorts of materials and layups. All the progresses in resins, carbon fibre, kevlar, Inegra and working with PU, polystyrene and wood. A vast knowledge to say the least. Peter is one on the unsung masters of the surf industry working long days by himself to create beautiful boards by hand.
He builds boards of all shapes, kinds and sizes from many and varied materials.
