Local Shaping Resourses

Looking for local shapers here in San Diego. Looking for any info on how to make your own blank. I have the book, surfboard. Seen little tid bits here and there. Just a novelty. I want to make a board from scratch. Also, anyone have a metal stand for sale or a contact. I have seen the racks at EZ but looking for someone wanting to get rid of their rack. Or to exchange shaping ideas. Steve
