gallery, great to hear from a shaper!
i think this is a very important discussion for those of us that like to ride that type of wave but surf for the most part in NJ. we dont get to practice...
i like this description. sounds almost exactly right. cut & paste & send to shaper.
this is all very helpful in terms of how to best use our upcoming season's biggest surf. i'll start scouring craigslist for something that "will work." sounds like 6'6 is a good place to start,...
LBCrew & mitchell: what i'm gathering is "bite the bullet & get a real step up" ... so if i summarize comments:

my guess is that you're not likely to get your money's worth. has nothing to do with whether heritage can shape a good board or not. has to do with the construction of firewire boards. to repair a...

here's my hypothesis for the minimal ideal jersey quiver.
one board is not enough, you need three if you want to surf often:
1. a longboard - whatever type you prefer -- e.g. a 9 footer ...
