Back in December I received an order to shape a Wingnut II model and a Martinson Stepdeck for a father and his son all the way from Australia. Shaping the boards definitely made me rise to the occasion as I had to go back in my memory bank…just one of the reasons why I still really enjoy shaping! On top of that, good thing Wingnut was here in Tamarindo while I was shaping the boards as he joined me in the shaping room to supervise the shaping of his WII model!

Fast forward two months later, last week Frederick and Alex arrived in Tamarindo to pick up and surf their new Robert August custom boards. They also brought along Wingnut as their surf guide here in Costa Rica. Just bitchin!
Over the past week I was fortunate enough to spend some time with Frederick and Alex talking story, chatting about their surf sessions with their new boards, and getting dusty in the shaping room. I think I may have ruined Alex’s life as well! From what I have heard he is a really good student and attending a top university in Australia, but after spending some time here in Costa Rica he wants to be a shaper and work on his bottom turn.
P.S. Now stop starting at the screen, get off that device that you are using, and go catch some waves!
