i’m from the philippines where there are lots of new world-class surf spots still being discovered (i started surfing in 2005 btw).
i’m looking for a surf shop on the california coastline that’s willing to take me in as an apprentice, so i can learn how to shape boards well enough to set up shop back here.
i’m very much willing to learn all about surfcraft from end to end, by initially doing ding repair.
my ideal shaper-mentor would be someone whose expertise includes custom-built HWS, so i can learn how to utilize environment-friendly materials (bamboo & other natural fibers) that are easy to source here.
if there’s a way i can help out in marketing & selling your boards in exchange for an end-to-end surfcraft apprenticeship, i would appreciate your feedback soonest.
