    Lightbulb Local Shapers!!!

    Ok, I would like to know all the local shapers in your area. i think it would be nice to know all the shapers/glassers around nc and south. now, i mean shapers that do their own glassing not shaper that have someone else do the glass work for them.

  2. Wink Local Shapers

    SURF CITY in NMB..... They are local shapers and designers.. They have their shop in the store and most of their boards are designed and shaped right there.. I got both of my boards tehre, and they're really easy going guys.. they're older guys, not intimidating for beginners or the sort.

    My own personal opinion, but Kelly Richards in Garden City @ Village is hands down the best in the area. He shapes Perfection Boards. Pixie is talking about Gary Wilson who shapes for Surf City. Gary learned how to shape from Kelly at village. He makes a really good board but I still prefer Kelly. Like I said though, its all personal opinion, Kelly has been shaping my boards for years so he knows how I ride and what I like. Also, Todd Suttz is fairly new to the area and just now starting to get established. He shapes Island Inspired boards. He's from Hawaii and I've heard he shapes good stuff. He specializes in Longboards and Retro styles though. There is also Maya Surfboards, cant think of the dudes name but you can find most of his stuff in Extreme Surf Shop here in MB.

    If ya got any questions feel free to Msg me.

    I may be wrong on the last name, but he made my magic carpet: 6'0" Twin Devil fish.

    Kelly Richards by far! Great guy, great to talk to and has been doing longer than anyone i know around here. However, I think he has someone else glass. I know he did when i had my first board done about 4 years ago. Guy named Christian at the time.

    Everyone I know around here is impressed with Kelly Richards. A friend of mine shipped a Perfection retro fish out to his brother in CA and now his friends are asking him to buy more and send them out to Cali. I am a beginner and bought my board from Kelly. It's a used 9' 0" epoxy, but not Perfection. The point is Kelly treated me right and I will buy my next board from him. My buddy has been around him a lot (did surf camps for him) and swears by him. I have never heard a single bad thing about him. ILocally, if there are even 4 or 5 surfers in the water, you can bet at least one of them will have a Perfection board.
