Brice Yamashita was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. Learning how to swim at age 15, then learning how to surf at the age of 18. This late start in surfing kept the surf stoke alive like a grom even till this day.

Working as a polisher, then a fin and hot coater at a couple of surfboard factories got Brice started in the surfing industry. 

From board number two on, he began shaping on his own. After shaping a handful of boards, 2005 became his official start in shaping.

Brice has been fortunate enough now to be working with some of the best surfers located in Hawaii and Japan. This has helped take his surfboard shaping skills to the next level and the future looks bright as these surfers continue to take the boards to new levels.
