Posted: April 26, 2012 at 8:32 pm

Jim Parkinson began shaping boards at Jacko’s in ’74 when he replaced Froggy Byrne. Prior to that he was a backyarder making boards for mates. He began in the short board singlefin era and has been shaping at Jacko’s ever since. Jim continues to stay current to produce the latest shapes and styles but also is renoun for the retro shapes of days past. Along with Dave Mathison the pair bought Brian Jackson the original owner out in the late 90’s .
