    Unhappy Guess I won't be getting another one...

    Today I was poking around the internet, trying to find some info on the guy who shaped my longboard (15 years ago).

    Sadly, I found this:
    JAMES \"JT\" TURNBULL, 50, of the North Shore, died Nov. 24, 2000. He was a surfboard shaper for Country Surfboards on the North Shore for 32 years. Survived by parents, Frank and Helen Turnbull; sister, Cynthia Loveall. Ashes to be scattered 2 p.m. Sunday at Sunset Beach. Potluck gathering to follow at the old Country Surfboards factory across from Sunset Beach.

    There are so many Shapers out there that make sick longboards? Where are you at maybe we can send you the the direction of a shaper in your area

    Thanks for the offer. Not really looking just yet. Gonna ride this one until it dies. Hopefully there will be enough left of it that I can bring it to someone and ask them to duplicate it. It is a lot like a Surfboards Hawaii Model A (triple stringer fanned out at the nose, step deck, concave nose), but with a trimmed in outline, and a little more rocker. Really a magical board.

    I grew up spending my summers just up the parkway from you in Avalon/Stone Harbor, used to work at Suncatcher in SH when I was in college. Had to sell the place this year Luckily, my in-laws still have a place in LBI. I live near DC, and hit NJ or the Eastern Shore (DE/MD) when the ocean gets a bump on it.
