any pinnoy board builders?

« on: August 16 2009 22:08:00 »

Is there any pinnoy guys (or girls) into making surfboards ?  like shapers, glassers,fin makers . I'd be very interested to hear what you guys are doing.

Sorry, I didn't mean to put a "?" on the first sentence.  I do mean it as a good question.

Hi there,

You can email lui at ltortuya@yahoo.com.

Thanks for the info Paolo , but I don't want to buy a board .     I'm interested in what the guys are doin, maybe swap some ideas on design or glassing or shaping-anything to do with surfboard building . I don't want anything for free , and I,m not tryin to sell anything.   I'm just interested . I,ve got a website , but I won't post it here becuase this is a forum and it's not for advertising !

Pat, I was actually thinking about learning how to shape.  I'm not really a good surfer but I'm really drawn to the creativity side of shaping a board.  Any tips on any site I could check out to start learning?

Ricky, there are many websites (technology for you) that you can check if you really want to learn how to shape. The only problem is actually getting the materials to do any work or practice.
For someone who insists that technology is good for advancing one's interests i'm surprised that you didn't take the time to look into your computer and research the subject. I found one on YouTube that might help someone at your level. Just click on the link:
