Thanks for the post, if the industry was better I would love to go into a shaping business. My friend Axel Moore introduced me to shaping in the beginning of the summer. I just recently repaired an Al Merrick whose nose was completely torn off, hope to post pics up sometime..
Nice vid. I started shaping not long after I first learned to surf. At the time it was for economical reasons, but I've found that I take nearly as much gratification from shaping as I do from riding. Glassing is a completely different monster however.
