Almond's Guide to Shaping Your First Surfboard

3 reviews   |  

This is a bonus section of our multi-part guide to helping you make more informed decisions about your surfboard quiver.  

Understanding your equipment is a critical part of progressing your surfing experience, and becoming the best all-around surfer in the lineup.  What better way to gain knowledge than investing time, and mental energy, into shaping a surfboard yourself.

Note: This guide is not called how to become a surfboard shaper, how to quit your job and start a surfboard business, or how to become a master of the shaping room.  There are unique elements to shaping your first surfboard that I think have tremendous value in the overall surf experience, and I want to focus on those things.

Included in this Guide:

  • Hot Tips
  • Stories
  • Advice from our 13+ years of building surfboards
