I am seventeen and I have been pretty focused for the last year or two on shaping surfboards. I don't actually surf that much I mainly kitesurf but I want to pursue shaping as a career. I'm not sure if this is what Swaylocks is meant to be used for, but I would greatly appreciate any advice from anyone who has been successful in this industry.
As a junior in highschool, college is all anyone over the age of forty asks me about. Is college really all that necesary? I mean I know it's easier to get a job or whatever but do I really need a hundred thousand dollar education to be successful?
Basically what I am saying is if I wanted to put my head on shaping boards for the next forty years, what steps should I take now to make sure that I don't end up living with my parents?
This is probably way to much work to answer fully but really anything would be appreciated.
