What’s your shaping philosophy / design process?
Listen to what the customer wants their surfboard to do. Understand the type of waves and range in size the board will be surfed in. This is a crucial aspect of surfboard design— combining the appropriate curves on the surfboard to fit in the curves of specific waves. Discuss surfboard design theories and characteristics. I believe the perfect surfboard is 80% mental and 20% design. A surfer can have a perfectly tuned board, but if they aren't completely confident with the design characteristics we chose, it could ruin their experience and our business relationship. As their shaper I need to find out what design elements the customer is comfortable with. If a surfer wants to step outside of their comfort zone and experiment with a new design element, I have to communicate the pros and cons about how the characteristics of the board will respond and make sure they are completely confedent with the decision.
