    Check out Dave Levy in Gansett. He operates LSD surfboards over there and is a respected shaper in RI. I contacted him once about helping me glass a board and he was happy to oblige, however i'm not sure what his answer would be to glassing boards on a permanent basis for someone else.

    How much would you charge for a board?

    single fin i could deff build you one of those pin tails are my favorite tails to ride i currently ride a 6' 2" 18 1/2 2 1/4 and it works great at ruggles and tuckies, i would never ride anything else. you guys can contacts me directly at patslax13@aol.com for questions or my number. my boards usualy range from around 300- 450 depending on fins, glassing airbrush ect. but most are right about 300-350
