My name is Kevin Rider. I am a local surfboard builder out of NJ and I am friends with a lot of the East Coast shapers who frequent this forum. I've heard from a few of them that there's a great group of guys who post here and there are some great discussions going on so I figured I'd check it out for myself.
I'm looking forward to sharing some stories with you guys and contributing where I can.
In the meantime, feel free to check out my website at http://www.surfboardsbyrider.com or check out my board in this month's ESM.
Hope to see some of you in the water real soon!

Here's a link to the online magazine--http://easternsurf.com/ISSUES/ESM_ISSUE_159/
Page 62 right next to the BIC Surfboards ad haha ...how lucky.
Hi Kevin, the above link to your site doesn't work but I followed the link from Arc Surfboards. On the Squid Launcher how did you get such a wide stringer. It looks tapered as well, like narrow at the tail and wide at the nose, just curious.

i believe it is a 1" balsa string which tapers to 1/8" just off the top of my head. but Kevin will know for sure!
Thanks, I'm assuming that these are eps blanks and the stringers are glued in by the shaper?

hey kevin. if you want to market yourself and brand here so hard why don't you buy some advertising on the site rather than name drop like crazy.

do you offer demos by any chance?
Hey Zippy, no you can order custom US Blanks with different stringers. usually costs extra but their are alot of options.
