    Anyone have any experience with Mike Dolsey (sp?) in Norfolk? Somebody recommended him to me, I may be looking to get a fish shaped for me soon.

    yeah this guy at sea level surf supply (757) 491 2711 has thousands of blanks for sale in his shop near seatac rec center if you're in vb, and you can talk to the factory that supplies WRV (wrvfactory@gmail.com) they're a little harder to get ahold of an you usually end up getting reject blanks cuz all the wrv guys get the solid ones.

    A friend of mine shaped his own board for kite surfing a couple of years ago and got his materials foam, resin, etc... from Austin (Austin Surfboards). I would give him a call at his shop. He's typically there on Friday and Saturday.

    I agree with the earlier posts suggesting Bill Frierson. I just picked up a long board he shaped for me and it is beautiful! He's from the area and also has experience around the world. Great guy who will sit down with you and discuss what you want and will shape a board that will work in this area given your experience and abilities. You can't go wrong. Good luck!

    I could be wrong, but the only boards I've ever heard about associated with Mike Dolsey are Far East pop out's. He runs a warehouse in Norfolk and advertises his boards on Craigslist for $250+ I know he's from this area, but I've never heard of a legitimtaely hand shaped board that was glassed around here. Again, I could be wrong. See the attached link.

    After some research on a 'new to the area' shaper up here in DE, I came across this website for ordering chinese pop-outs. Looks like that guy is doing the same thing. And actually, the so-called shaper up here is from the VB area and doing the same thing as far selling them cheap on craigslist, they probably know each other.

    the company:
