Having never had a “real” job, my career from day one has been to embrace that innate entrepreneurial spirit, turn on that opportunity radar, see what comes my way. I established 3 surfboard brands of which I am very proud, from Odyssey surfboards (1973 – 1977) Western Australia, to Nev Future Shapes in Queensland 1978 to 2006 which then evolved into the globally renown Firewire Surfboards.
Strangely, I have 2 Guinness World records for the largest surfboard ever built and for the most surfers riding on a wave on one surfboard, (47 in Queensland and 60 in California, 2005).
Recently, due to my life in and around the ocean and sincere passion for the environment, I took an interest in recycling waste plastic, the scourge of the seas. The result is that I am founding partner of Nevhouse Invest Pte Ltd (Singapore) that creates flatpack houses from a unique compound made from waste plastic and recycled woods, with the aim to replace slums with hygienic, long lasting low cost houses that can be erected and dismantled in 2 days.
