    757 Surfboards

    Does anyone have experience with VA Beach 757 Surfboards shapers and/or their boards?
    I'll be looking for a new or used 8 ft board to replace my old beginner beater after end of summer and would like to spend my money here and support local business.

    You live in VB and you're not going to get your surfboard from WRV? That makes zero sense to me. I once didn't get a WRV board and paid the price dearly. The 757 website also sucks.

    WRV is local. Austin is also a good local company and is probably the best for high performance longboards but you'll spend a bit more.

    If you are looking for a local longboard shaper Bill Frierson is one of the best. You owe it to yourself to at least stop by his shop and talk to him even if you don't end up buying a board from him. He is a wealth of knowledge and is super helpful. I have several of his boards and love them.

    If you want to see them in action they seem to have a growing popularity around Croatan. The shapers normally surf there and are also instructors for VB Surf Sessions and I'm pretty sure they would let you surf a few on one of their boards before buying. Check them out on facebook or go out to the shop I think tonight for the meet the shaper and have yourself a chance to win a 757.

    I personally never rode a 757; but inching toward picking up a quad for winter and just to add one to the quiver. The guys seem legit, as its only two dudes in a shop, and have alot of local support from local shapers such as J. Fernandez.

    If you want to support local 757 is a great way... as well as WRV or Austin. But if you want to support the little man in the picture check out 757 and if serious about building a custom board they have pretty good testimonial on the focus they put into building you the right board for you.


    Damnit.. now I type like EmassSpicoli...ha

    If you want high performance, get a WRV. If you want a quality longboard, get an Austin.
