    BMon... I have a bunch of resources and guides I used in my course I can send you. Materials/tools lists, foam and cloth guides, shaping and glassing guides, and a LOT of design theory stuff. Let me know when you're ready to pull the trigger.

    Pretty much the same here. Made my first board in 1989. Took some breaks along the way. I'm somewhere in the 30s at this point. Still do a couple a year.

    board I had the most fun on was a garage-made stinger fish made by a friend (RIP). He had only shaped about 10 boards prior to this, so the rails were funky (to say the least) and, since he cut it out of a regular shortboard blank, there was basically no nose rocker. It was a paddling beast and could generate speed even in significant mush...closest thing to a longboard substitute I've ever had.

    The best pro-shaped board I ever had for small waves was a Rusty Piranha. Incredible paddler and more wave size range than my homemade board, but not quite as fun in the smaller stuff.

    I currently have a Roberts Mutant but it's more of an HP board for better (non-mush) waves.

    An '82 Sunshine by Claude Codgen pretty similar to this single fin of coarse, best Florida board ever
