Hi his cel phone is 094-457-456
PLayas is a very low key town and working class type of town. Also does not have much infraestructure etc. So, regular home is non existent and the only other way you can try is send a letter to CORREO CENTRAL GENERAL VILLAMIL -PLAYAS - ECUADOR WITH HIS NAME. I can send him a message ansd help if you want as I go often to PLayas.
He is not the only one making balsa sfurboards or blanks there are 2 other guys who also make them and I can get in put you in contact etc.. They all learn to make and shape balsa through Andres Kosminsky Balsa Flite guy.

Got straight to Andres. I have been working with him for 15 years - way before balsa, retro or longboards were cool. he did some chambered big wave guns for me that still hold up - although I did buckle one in Peru (spot un-named). Of course, the youger guys have good chops as well. I just prefer going to the source. I have visited his shop (????) in Playas numerous times and have always felt welcome and accepted - I typically have basic measurements and ideas and tthen let him follow through. I have made several boards for myself (20-30) and it was really a learning experiance. I know enough to know I don't know much, but at least I can speak shaper-speak. Joseph
