Wish I had more to share, Ive only shaped one board. Everything I was told to watch is available on youtube, including the above Aipa vid which is gold. If you watch the Kazuma vids, you see the commonality with Aipa's methods.

They want to know the fin positions , did your friend help with that ?

For handshaping some of the US Blanks are the best and truest ever made .

No way those fins are at 11.

That’s thruster placement.
