Smooth Radical / The Keith Paull Story

Keith Paull and Bing Copeland worked together in the late 60s / early 70s to create some of the midlength and shortboards that are still in our lineup of boards today.

"The incredible rise and dramatic fall of surfing superstar Keith Paull is finally told by those who knew him best - in this one and only book about his life. The whole story is here, revealing one of the most internationally admired pro-surfer/shapers the Gold Coast has ever produced. The raw truth, shared by his family, his mates, photographers, peers and his spirited competition in the surf - everyone who knew and loved the effortlessly smooth and yet destructively radical KP."
