Great show this year, Thanks Scott Bass for the excitiment. It seems like Magazines still don't get it and places like Swaylocks where alot of the true craftmans thru out the world keep the stoke alive along with progression of the sport. Why this comment you might ask, well a picture tells a 1000 words. This guy didn't finish shaping his board in the shape off. And I believe Cordell showed up with No Planner and had to borrow one, but you won't hear that in the Mag. Correct me if I am wrong, but how do we believe the Smoke and mirrors along with the Hype of the old boy magazine club. I have been in this industry for over 40 years and in the last 10 to 14 years it's been a joke. In the last few years a change in the tides have started with a young group making waves away from the big corps. Thank god for places like Swaylocks, the Internet and shows like the Boardroom where we get to see the real deals and give credit to the guys like Matt Calvani and Roger Hinds and Honor someone like Ben Aipa who is one of my favorite shapers which I have a Aipa Sting that he made for us in the 70's. I am blessed to share alot of special momments with Guys like Matt Calvani and Roger Hinds along with Lance Carson, Hap Jacobs and Bing to mention a few and call them my friends. I hope the next generation will have the same luck to share those momments with their Mentors and Lengends like I have. In finishing up to shaping contests held like the one at the Boardroom Show this last weekend. It's the responsiblity of the major Industry Magazines to Promote and Support the History and Tradition of Surfboard Shaping. It would be nice to hear the input from others on this matter.
