    Local Surfboard shapers

    Who are the most experienced and "best" shortboard shapers in the Wilmington/Wrightsville area. One who can guide someone and help decide what kind of board to shape because I've never ordered a custom board and I wouldn't know exact dimensions, rocker, concaves, and what-not to get.

    SODs are good for sure. Mike Paul at Hot Wax works wonders as well.

    Will might do some shortboard stuff, but yes he is mainly a hybrid/long/fun shaper. Heard nothing but good things about yearwood, seen some of his shapes over at Wrightsville glassing and they look pretty good. As far as performance shortboards, SOD and Raynor will steer you the right way!!

    I have a Proline (7'6" short board for a fat ass) from Mike Paul and a Perfection (9'0" originally shaped for Tony Sylvagni) from Kelly Richards and I can say that both are top notch boards. I'd recommend either.
