board shaping

hey everyone, i know there are a few people round the montreal area that shape. And I been thinking bout making myself a fish, prolly gonna go the eps and epoxy route. finding supplies seems to be an issue, and as I have never shaped before i think it's gonna be tough. been checkin out swaylocks, but was hoping to get some local help, like where is the best place for supplies, specifically blanks. Also any shaping tips or suggestions, ways to avoid mistakes would be greatly appreciated.
cheers,
B

RE: board shaping

are you making a reeal fish or a short board with swallow tail?  dude i dont htink fish's are your best choice  for river waves. maybe a swallow tail would work good or a round squash. what shape a wave do your spots produce?

RE: board shaping

I am making a fish but it is not for river used. I already have a 6'3 squash for the river. I am thinking fish for east coast surf. I will be in NS most of the summer and usually hit the US yearly so  I want something for those smaller summer days that isnt my 7'2 funboard.

RE: board shaping

If your coming to NS then your fish will be your main board for the summer!  Also bring a longboard.  I am making a fish as we speak 6'8" x 16" x 22" x 18"- 3.25" 8" deep swallow twinzer.  Single to double concave with a slight vee.  epoxy over EPS 2x10 OZ cloth on top 2x6OZ cloth bottom.  FCS fins.  There are some good shapers here in NS including me!

RE: board shaping

i know there are several great shapers on our east coast. I know of one in particular brent simone. friend of a friend type deal. I already own 2 boards, but want to get into shaping moreso than just having a new board. I was hoping to find someone in the area that could give me advice, where to fin materials, and maybe give me a hand or let me watch them shape. I knw there are a few shapers in the montreal area, was hoping to get the board done by summer but i doubt it will happen now. maybe it will becoime a late summer project.
