I just picked up a vintage 9’ Hansen Superlight. Hoping someone could tell me who the shaper was. On each side of the serial number is a squiggle or could be a sideways “S”. Sure would appreciate any help.
txsurfbob, this is a little late but I posted a 9’8" superlight in 2006. Bill Thrailkill said Richard Templin used ~ on the front and back of the number.

Hey, I really appreciate the info. It means a lot knowing who shaped the board. I'll have to do some research on Richard Templin and find out a little more about him. Thanks for sharing guys! Mahalo.
