Still contemplating whether or not I have the ability to even tackle shaping, just wanted to know if anyone living in the Portland Oregon area would allow me to just watch them shape.
ya i'm starting shapping also but i'm in bumfuck, pa so i can't help u there. let me no if u ever need any tips i'll see what i come across in my researching.
i also started shaping at the beginning of this summer. and already made three boards. what got me started was just reading online about rail design, thickness, etc. than the hard part of shaping and glassing. im out here on long island and i started because i could not afford a $500 board from a small surf shop. just read than try it. you'll never know if you never try.
