i used too race bmx bikes and motorbikes. Always did my mechanics, tuned my engines, setup the frames, last minute setup changes, poly repairs ec… IT IS HARD TOO COMBINE. I can shape a board. I am a beginner surfer, but when i am on a trip i always look for shapers instead of surfers too hang around with. Is Michael Shumacher a good designer/engineer??? Is Kelly Slater a good shaper??? geert
