My name carries no fame. However I am a wood surfboard builder. I have been doing it for years. I cannot claim I've made a hundred surfboards but I don't need to have a certain number of completed builds to call myself a shaper. I have nearly 100 pictures documenting the build process. The complexity of building a surfboard of this design is more complicated than shaping a foam board. There are numerous more steps involved.
So after building a surfboard like this I can't hold the title of shaper? Ha Ha Ha Ha
Ask your standard shaper to build you one of these.
What these fellows are doing we call 'tall poppy lopping'.
They have a set of prescribed beliefs the adoption of which gives them a sense of identity, and they rabidly censure dissenters and free thinkers.
