    this is actually the best advice.

    u could also just go to a local shaper and ask him to shape you something. I dont know how much it is there but usually here in maui u can get a shortboard professionally made for you (it'll have your name on it and everything!) for around 450-500$.

    Yeah please dont buy from the big boys if you can. Support you local shaper.. its cheaper for you.. and im gonna let you in on a lil secret.. most shapers just clone the big names anyways.

    WHy I warn people from buying a new expensive board is it has more to do with psychology. I see a lot of people who buy new boards.. they get attached too it, its their baby, so when they should be progressing and riding a different board for the conditions they ride theyre brand new bright and shiney board with their name on it.. If you got 2-3 different shapes in your car your more likely to hone in your quiver.

    You probably only really need 3 shortboards. 1 for groveling (wide tail).. 1 for nice turns (not as wide tail)... 1 for hollow waves (pintail) plus 1 log for the shin high days

    And Im not even over simplifying it

    BTW Im no local pro.. I am still dialing in my boards all the time.. and you might find that its a never ending process and that is where your local shaper can really help you. Make friends with him and before you know it is calling you with knew ideas he has for you.

    Im no pro either i wish. I still buy all my stuff just like most everybody else. Or make it, thats fun too.

    For now i have my quiver right where i want it. Would like to eventually add a big wave board to it but for now im set.

    I think its almost time to swap out my shortboard for something new tho, its been a year. About time to switch it up. Although i just got my fish from he glasser monday.
