So iv been saying this for awhile. Want to take a crack at shaping. Never really had the space but now that I'm in the new house i do. Well i think it's about time. Not right this moment as it's winter. But by spring for sure. Iv been doing my research and i think I'm going to use greenlight supply. They sell a kit that comes with everything. Except power tools. Which i already have except the planer. So my first question for the shapers here is this just that. Thoughts on using a planer on the first go. My plan was to not use one and just do it by hand for the first time. Second question is for everyone. Thoughts on what to shape? Im thinking a small wave board. Fish, mini sims, or maybe a egg/pod type board. Sort of like the picture below. Im leaning towards a pod. Single, twin, or quad? Just want to open the discussion up to your guys thoughts. Somthing more simple for a first time shape. But that still would have a purpose in my quiver so I'd want to ride it. I'll probably order the kit fairly soon and get to shaping. Glassing will have to wait for warmer weather. Ofcourse I'll be posting here throughout the process.
