    That "golden ratio" concept is interesting, though...

    the last issue had a cool article about a shaper using the ratio.

    My step up is a beautiful 6'9 shaped by Redman under the Hatteras Glass label. It's a custom I ordered about 8 years ago when I was living in Avon. Dimensions have faded but he had me go a few inches longer and a quarter inch narrower than my hpsb at the time. Also a quarter inch thicker where it would help with paddling. When u need a step up there's typically a good deal more water moving around. The bottom is relatively flat with a little vee for cutting thru the chop. He was a talented shaper and is missed. I've ordered customs from other shapers and nothing has come close for me.

    Once you have the right equipment, know your limits and you'll be fine.

    Yeah man, would have been cool to meet up. I haven't been any farther South than Spanish House / S. Inlet before, that's usually the cutoff but one of these days i'd like to check it out down there. Thanks for the invite!

    R.I.P. Redman. He was a great shaper. Pretty cool guy too. I was out at Rodanthe on a big day and a long haired guy walks up to me on the beach and starts asking all kinds of things about what I liked about the board. I was a little sketched out at first. I was built like gumby and here's this older scrappy looking guy grabbing the rails of my board and checking out the bottom. Plus the beach was mostly empty. Then he tells me he shaped the board and went into what he thought might work better for me after watching me surf for a while. I never got the chance to order a custom from him but I did buy another one of his boards a few years later. Best off the rack boards I've ever purchased.
