Welcome to my website
Surfer/banker Barry Shaw has straddled the worlds of the cool, laid back surfer scene with the sophisticated, tightly-wound world of commercial banking. Barry grew up on the warm sands of South Florida beaches. As an early member of the Greenbacks, one of the area's premier surf clubs, Barry spread his wings and traveled to where the best surf could be found, locations like California, Hawaii, Central America, and some of the better surf breaks on the east coast of the country. But surfing was not getting Barry where he wanted to be professionally, so he began a career in commercial banking. The story of Barry's life was told to author Patrick Mansell and memorialized in the pages of Spoils Island, a collaboration between these two men; a fun, interesting, and informative look into worlds that most people rarely get to visit.
