I have finally decided I want to get a custom board made. Who are some of the better shapers in these states? Also, are custom shapers willing to copy other models out there? If you post a shaper, please post a their website. Thanks
Jon Ashton, Mike Hague, Xon Zane (XYZ), Pete Arslanian (to name a few)
Don't know if they have websites but you can get an Ashton by talking to Chauncey
Mike Hague is a member of this site so you can post to him directly
I can give you Arslanian's phone number if you send a message
Not sure how to get in touch with XYZ but plenty of folks in this forum do so just ask
Alrighty, I did your heavy lifting now go buy one from one of them (or the from one of the folks the other people recommended)
+1 on the wynn recommendation! he's made me some sick boards over the years & is a super cool guy to work w/. his website isn't too up to date, he's too busy mowing foam & making kick-ass surfboards!
& he'll more or less clone boards if that's what you really want...the 6'4" bonzer he made me this winter is based on my 6'4" ci fort knox that i took to the maldives. he's also in the process of making me a tweaked dumpster-diver type board for the summer.
if you're a facebooker, this may be the best way to get in touch w/ him: https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/...s/386940626884
