Hero shapers

I saw the saddest sight today, a beautiful longboard blank with 1" red foam t-band offset stringers. The wood was sticking out about 1/8" and the red foam was sanded back an equal distance. This same shaper has done boards for Curren, Tom Carroll and Occy. I have always said, a good surfer can ride anyones boards, put them on a great shapers boards and see how they do!
