    Anyone know a shaper that will allow you to shape with their assistance?

    Hey Guys,

    I'm curious, does anyone know a local shaper in DELMARVA/NJ that will allow you to shape a board under their guidance? I have always wanted to shape one but don't want to buy all the tools.

    I think I only want to shape one. If I want more than that I guess I would need to buy the tools.

    If you do know someone, do you know what they charge to teach? I don't want to learn to make boards and enter the market. I just want to ride a board that I made.

    Nick

    I wasn't thinking of it like that. More so I would buy the board materials and shop space and do it myself. I would just like someone to ask a question if I had one. Thanks for the website info though, I will definitely check it out.

    gonna piggy back off this thread, I live in Virginia beach and have always wanted to learn to shape. I wanted to find out if there is anyone in the area that would be willing to just let me hang out in the shaping bay and clean up and **** to learn a little of the trade. not looking to shape immediately but really wanna learn some of the trade

    Yea I second that. The best way to learn is through trial and error... Check out swaylocks.com, it's a fantastic site if you are looking to shape a board. Also has a forum with tons of experienced shapers

    Are you wanting to shape to sell boards one day or just for you?

    I think this guy will help you out but you will have to sweep up around his shaping shack and design him a new logo with soul.
