Here's a shot of my Beal mini quiver. It's great to see Roger getting props on the forum. I'm very stoked to have him as my local shaper!

Roger is a great shaper. I have an interesting story about a board of his. WHen I moved to SD from the south bay in 1989, I was looking for a board for hollow waves that was similar to the ones I rode growing up at burnout. I bought a beautiful 6'6" pintail with a fantastic "hippy swirl" on the bottom. Glassed heavy and real clean lines. Rode it all over the place and even took it to Puerto once where it survived which is saying something if you have been there.
Loved the board. Well, took a trip with a buddy up the coast to see the Dead at Oakland Coliseum in 89/90 or so. Stopped off at my buddies dorm at UCSB. At night some kooks broke my buddies window and stole all our stuff. 4 boards or so, wetsuits, clothes, everything. I was frickin' pissed and devastated to lose that board. Continued the trip on borrowed equip. and got some nice waves along the way up in the usual places. Also a nice Dead show but couldn't believe I didn't have that board anymore.

After getting back my buddy saw some guys paddling out at Campus for a midnight session on that unmistakable board. He went back to his dorm and got his biggest bruisers and they went and beat the crap out of them and took the boards back(mine included). Then the cops came and raided these jerks' place and found thousands of dollars of stolen crap of all sorts. This jackass was even wearing my buddy's shoes at the time. Frickin' thieves.
So I got the board back and enjoyed it a bit more then gave it to my buddy who reclaimed it. Ever since i wanted to contact Roger for another board. Guess he has relocated but hope things are well with him. That board brought me many good times.

Roger shaped a board for me when I was living back in Marshfield. He glassed it, too! Unreal! Great craftsmanship. Solid guy, too. New England surfers need to go seek him out and order a board. He's the real deal SD legend.
