    yeah perfections are also i good ive heard good stuff about them as well as all the others. but just go around a nd look at some models the different shapers have. bnut it also depends on if you want a shortboarda fish all that stuff palys a big role in getting a custom surfboard.

    Pride

    I ordered a board from Dave Endress over a year ago. I don't know what level your surfing is at, or what your riding now, but I had him make me a custom quad and it's magical. Over the years I've ordered boards from shapers on both coasts from fishes to big guns. I can't stress enough the relationship you develop with a shaper to tune your equipment. Though I've had some good boards, Dave was the first shaper to really listen to my concerns and created a board that blew me away. He taught nearly every other shaper in the area what they know and in my opinion, he's the best. Not only do I recommend him as a custom shaper, but I can assure you that my next board will be a Pride.

    Man, you can like stencil it and spray-paint. But I hear Blue Ridge Surfboards does a very good glassing job on his boards and is awesome at board art (www.blueridgesurfboards.com) but I don't know much of his boards performance-wise.

    On the other hand, you can buy some paint pens and I'll draw whatever you like on your board, just make sure you seal it right.

    I've been surfing since the beginning of this June. I started through a week of Surf Camp where we used longboards (not sure what size). After that, I got a 6'4 NSP Fish in which I learned how to ride the line and turn. After a month or two I traded it in for an 8' Gary Wilson custom (custom-made for someone else) where I am currently at. I am pretty confident and feel comfortable in the head high range (depending on conditions) though I still can't really do any maneuvers ("real" tricks) yet and I want to buy a board so I'll be able to learn them.

    I've heard nothing but good for Pride.

    WBsurfer- If you want some graphics on a board you already own just have an artistic friend do it up with acrylic paint pens and seal it with a clear acrylic. If you want a new board with some sick color work check out Austin surfboards in VA Beach. They do some of the sickest swirls and patterns ive ever seen. I like the faux wood swirl that Blue Ridge does as well, but ive never seen one of their boards first hand.

    There are a couple of other good shapers in the AB/EI area as well. Check out Carl Heverly, Chris Jones, or Dave Dixon. They are all top notch.

    How 'bout Proline surfboards? I'm basically deciding between that and Pride.
