JC cuts outline with a CHAINSAW!!! Bill Stewart airbrushes a wave on a grommets back!!

Chaos at the Hurley US Open of Surfing this past weekend!  Not only was there surfing, girls, music, and more but Scott Bass of** Sacred Craft** and his boys set up a shaping booth inside an air conditioned tent for
the shapers to do shaping demos on the sand right in the middle of all
the craziness. Along with the help of U.S. Blanks and us (Foam E-Z) they were able to work through and explain the shaping process to onlookers. I was able to catch John Carper
doing his thing and it was really to cool to not only see what he was
doing but to also hear him explain his movements. It was very special
since the inside of a shaper’s bay is a very private place. This is
where secrets are kept and ideas are formed, therefore to be able to
see a real pro going at it was a great treat for everyone. Carper
really wowed the crowd when he broke out a chainsaw to cut out the
outline. Other legendary shapers on hand for the demo were; Bill Stewart, Maurice Cole, Doc Lausch, Darren Handley, Pat Rawson, and local HB legend surfer/shaper Robert August. So as you can see this was quite a display of history, skill, and craftsmanship.  Bill Stewart airbrushed a wave on a grommets back for shits and giggles.  Check out our blog for more pics and detailed info on the event http://www.foamez.com/blog/
