  1. New to the Forum!

    Hey everybody,

    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!

    --Kevin

    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.

    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.

    welcome to the jungle kevie

    Hey Zippy, no you can order custom US Blanks with different stringers. usually costs extra but their are alot of options.
