Local NJ Shapers?
Some new local shapers will be showing and demoing their boards at the Anything But 3 event this year.
the AB3 is a gathering of surfers and shapers to talk about board design & construction, and also give you a chance to try out some sticks from talented local shapers built for the local conditions.
AB3 is Saturday, Sept 26th, Hudson Ave in Harvey Cedars, LBI.

I have been to the one on the west coast every year, as well as the Fish Fry's and Sacred Craft shows. These things rock. Here is the reason... buying a different board with a different design, fin configuration, shaper, and materials is a risky proposistion to most surfers, right? I mean, you wanna play it safe and just get the board that you trust because you only get to buy a new board every year or so and you don't want to blow your annual board buy on something that you are going to hate. Because of this, you never get to ride some of those "exotics" out there and see if they would work for you.
However, by going to these shows I get to ride twins, bonzers (my personal favorite), quads, single fins, finless, hell- even surf mats without having to shell out the cash up front.
Take advantage of this guys, you can try out some incredible shapes and boards at these events and often talk to the shapers first hand about their thoughts on the boards.
Personally, my wife hates it when I go to these.. I might not come home with a new board, but it usually leads to an order on one within weeks after the show.
Top, because this thing rules.
Graham Preston is the best around!! colors in contrast surfboards
man this looks great. Do I have to preregister or can I just show up?
check out double surfboards. just moved to cali from south jersey
Do any of you actually read before you post?
The original poster is not looking for a NJ shaper... he is pointing out that there are NJ shapers that we willing to let people ride their boards (providing they are not thrusters... it's an anything but three fins expo).
Read, comprehend, then post (only if youi need to-this is NOT a requirement).
On that note, I highly recommend this event if you are in the area. Shoots the one's on the west coast we have peeps fly in from the east coast to attend these. You guys should be all over this.
I really don't know why this thread isn't getting more play. Do you guys ever have these on the east coast? I'm not sure if you guys realize how much fun these things are.
... and stop saying "Cali" please. The only people who say that are not from here (California).
.. and LL Cool J. :cool:
Several of us drove up from Delaware to the AB3 last May at the same spot. It was a really good time, the waves cooperated nicely, and yeah there were some sick sick boards laying around. Probably at least 100 boards on the dune, and i would say over half of them were shaped in Jersey or surrounding states. If you have any interest in making boards, checking out locally made boards, or want to meet some of the top local shapers, this get together is worth it.

Ironically, the shapers link I posted was there last year and probably will be there again this year. You should probably just stick to events in CALi....
P.S - On the east coast we don't refer to people as peeps, so unless you want to look a kook, I would just keep quiet
