    i asked the guys at the surf shop if i could stop buy the shapers shop to see the progress of the board and he told me the shaper does not let people do that. they won't give me his phone number either.

    well if the shaper has his own line of boards he probally has a website.

    The way I see it is that its your money and u have the right to see what the progress if your board is . If they cant agree to that tell them to give you you cash and and the boards back , that really fuct up that they wouldnt give you any info. You havent mentioned the shop or the shaper so it best to keep the secret with you

    the thing is i only know the shapers first name and i can't find any info on him online. i do know that he does good work and was told by a friend to use him.

    They said it would take until mid Feb, so even though it's been 5 months, it's not that late. Honestly, I'm to the point that I just expect boards to always take longer then the shop estimates. In the rare instance they are on time, I consider myself lucky.

    My last custom was as late as your refurbish job, and mine was just a new board which was supposed to be done much quicker than your estimate. I would sit tight and try and be patient. If you decide to press it with the shop, deal with owner if you can. The kids working at the shop I ordered from would each give me a different answer. The owner on the other hand was straight about it, as was the shaper. I would keep in regular contact with them about it.

    It does seem a little odd that you can't speak to the shaper directly. That would make me a tad uncomfortable. But it's probably nothing.

    It's better to have the board back late, and be done right, then to have them rush it and do a bad job.
