im shaping a board with my dad and i dunno what to shape. ive already got a 5 '8 round tail which is stuffed. i 5'9 square rounded and a 5'4 fish. i was thinkin bout templating my 5'8. any tips???
Bez if your 5'8" was a good board then trying to copy that one will be your best bet. It is easier to copy that than it will be to try a whole new design.
Remember to take minimal cuts from the deck as it is the hardest part in the foam, take things slowly, it is easy to take foam out of the blank but impossible to put it back. Good luck and check out some shaper forums or source out a book so you get the best out of your attempt.
