"I love that side of life where discovery, invention, functionality, fun and open-mindedness stand."
Luís Carvalho is from Coimbra and has a degree in industrial design from IADE - Faculty of Design, Technology and Communication.
Since he was a little boy, he has always been interested in assembling, disassembling and building new things. He learnt a lot about carpentry and furniture design from his grandfather and later at university.
Because of his passion for the sea and his love for creating things with his hands, he became a surfboard designer and shaper.
Currently Luís is considered the best shaper in Portugal and has his own brand - Lacrau.
