I sure don't................. I'm a shaper not a webmaster.
UPDATE: I clicked on this Stoker V link and what it now does is take you to my personal site. There are pix in there in a SVM folder. The distributor is working on a webexisting sites. He has asked for "EYE CANDY" ..... colored boards that catch browsers eye becuz, let's face it, clear is boring. Okay if you're Channel Islands..... apples to oranges. The color schemes that we are offering are what we are caling "era appropiate", meaning the way we colored boards in the '70's........ arches aka boomerangs aka wishbones, spears, clear tape margins separating foam stained colors, pigment and tinted boards, pinlines, "Tommy bands" (named after Curren's preferred deck color designs on hi early day C.I's), panels, abstracts, etc. .
So shapes are getting done and going in........ AYE AYE SIR, eye candy on the way.
Can't never did nuthin............ foam just arrived.
GET BUSY........................................... HAWK AND CREW AWAIT. MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE!
15 A WEEK AIN'T MASS PRODUCTION.... don't send me no mail bombs. :O
haa'' good to see you guys enjoying yrselfs
I gotta admit, it's less taxing and more fun to be a 'dedicated' shaper instead of having do the entire board start to finish.
I know the guys on Sway's that do it as a hobby don't see it that way, but when you are faced with consistently increasing orders, there really is no other way to do it.
Using Hawk, isn't a 'luxury', it's a necessity.
As long as I have the correct foam in house, it's a realistic two week turn around....... and quality at that.
Quality = more orders.
2 week turnaround is pay yourself TWICE as often as ONCE a month.
I find it kind of ironic that no one in SB carries my boards (where I was born) yet I have orders and inquiries from Oregon, San Diego, Malibu, Australia, Hawaii, NJ, and England.
What do they say about missed opportunity?
I'd stop worrying about what someone on sways might think?
When you are generating a personal income from board production you must make some cash.
Doing a board from A-Z it fun for low volume production or Hobby Status.
However building boards as a business your time is precious.
The design elements are still in your control.
Some of the grueling labor is farmed out.
FRANK LOYDD WRIGHT designed wonderful buildings.
Just because he did not lay the stones doesn't make him any less of a Architect.
Having HAWK glass your boards is only good sense.
Your Focus on the Design and Shape is the Key factor to the STOKER'S success!
Michael............... the momentum of the snowball is apparent. It's becoming an avalanche real fast. We need to talk. People are asking WHERE in the O.C. .................. closest supply I have is Mollusk (Venice Beach) and they sold out the first week. I'm resupplying immediately... 6'6", 6'8", 7'", 7'4", 7'6".......... end of next week delivery.
My distriubtor is working on page for his 4 websites (one just for women). He will handle the England order and more. I have orders from Florida, NJ and NY. Mollusk has a shop in Brooklynn and SF......... those will no doubt develop.
File time buddy, otherwise I'm gonna have a lot of bummed people. Who will carry in the O.C. that is pro? I don't want the most dealers, I want reliable professionals.
Yeah......what recession. I thought the DOW dropped 400 pts. yesterday.
Guess when it comes to waves, no one gives a sh-t.
Stokie is waitng for new boards and I told him that his personals rely on the paying customer. Isn't that Business 101? LOL.
Get that machine warmed up, I'm coming your way.
I'm also KEEPING CUSTOM IN THE USA.........NO MATTER WHAT..........SOMETIMES LESS IS MORE.
Bruce there are a few shops in Huntington Beach you should have sell your boards.

Thanks Michael. I'm getting hammered. File buddy file.
