My shaping is based on a custom board ethic and the 'models' that you see described on these pages are all based on lines of feedback from surfers like you, tuned from board to board. I am always happy to tweak a board to suit a surfers individual needs.

You can't really make a 'catalogue' without displaying 'models'. Consider my models as dots interspersed along the solid line that composes the infinite variety that is possible by hand shaping. Check them out and enjoy!
