Wow, that is a pretty amazing little 66 page resource. Thanks a million. That will more than get me started. That covers all the bases for the designs I am looking to start with. Longboard, then fish etc... So, I won't need to get into new design ideas and concepts until I somewhat master the old school basics of shaping. Just printed the book. I will probably read it like 4 times by the end of the weekend, but its a great start. Thanks again.

building a board
Some day we'll have pre made shaping rooms to rent. Swaylocks.com and tons of passion good luck.
i made a board in high school as my "senior project" and living in PA, not too many people i knew could really help but this website gave me so much information- http://www.surfersteve.com/introduction.htm
also, the author was very informative and responded to numerous emails and answered many questions i had. the board didn't turn out all that great but once i get enough money i definately want to try again.
