    Bill Kretzer Surfboards

    Does anyone have any experience with Kretzer surfboards? Bill's shaping in Surf Unlimited now on LBI and I was thinking about stopping buy to order one. He has two boards on the rack already and they look pretty nice. They told me a custom would cost in the mid to low 400's which sounds really good. I was thinking of getting a step up for winter/hurricane season since my quiver is really lacking in that area.

    yeah i read that but it isn't really helpful if you're looking for the quality and type of board he makes lol

    Bill likes making high performance shortboards. We're glassing a few of his shapes now. Real nice guy and a top notch shaper.
    I'm sure you'll be stoked with any board he makes for you
