I think most of them probably can. Doesn't burch shape and glass his own fish in the volcom movie?

The clue is in the title: it's about shaping. Architects don't put the bricks together.



to be fair i kind of wanted them to glass em too.

Every step of the process is an art. For a backyard hack like me it's always amazing to watch the pros at any step of the process. Ever try pin striping????

I wonder if any of the true pros watch that vid and cringe at some of the techniques on display?

Board building as a whole impresses me. Handing something off to a glasser anyone can do.

Glassers are the unsung heroes of the building world a dirty shitty job with toxic materials that is vey difficult to do well. That said shaping and glassing are separate .isciplines

Yeah, I've got respect for all the skills involved in building a board. If separate people do those jobs, then that's great. If it's a one-man band, then that's great too.

Then go buy a Merrick.......but don't call something DIY when it really isn't. Might as well buy a production board.

Snap Snap and Blah Blah

Here's Wade talking about Eric Haas who I mentioned in a response about airbrusher Mark Townsend to you that you ridiculed - airbrushers with history - Mark riding Huge 3rd reef Backyards with Eric bowdown



Some like new and more complete information outside the marketing stuff . Great movie , just missing so many others of that time .

If you think I ridiculed airbrushers you should get your head examined. You just made a weird out of place post in response to me stating that Jeanie Chesser was a great surfer and airbrusher. You seem to have taken my compliment about her as some sort of slight against others. Get a grip.

I posted several airbrushers with huge history in Hawaii of interest

Yourself and 2 others objected to that .

This attitude was created on this " Forum"

None of you were aware of these people and what they have done - straight into shit talk

Instead of asking for more info .
