which shaper was that?


his pops, gforce.

board looked good under his feet until he snapped it.

i love stab in the dark but I'm boycotting this year because of how they spoiled it months in advance and then now they want you to pay for it and it's only available through itunes which I don't have.

My guess is he's getting over $5,000.00 in royalties a month - enabling him to do anything cheers
The shaper is paid a fee for the rights to the file, correct? Then paid a percentage off the sale of each board?

I know Dan was there before Tomo but I think Tomo's sales outsell Dan.

Yep , he was there before you started surfing most likely .

Lots of models in lots of sizes . $$$

Lots of creative - knowledgeable shapers out there that don't have this kind of backing - your loss drowning

Rubble #1 is 5'10 x 19" x 2 7/16", squash with five boxes and S cloth. It's 28.4 liters.
Rubble #2 is a 6'4" rounded pin with 5 boxes, exact same dims as #1, S cloth and 30.7 liters.
I'm not a "volume" guy so that part doesn't mean much to me as long as the boards work.
Fins are Techflex AM2 futures on #1 and Pyzel Control Series on #2.

I got three things out of this thread.

1. Dan Mann is good people. Love that guy.

2. Kelly Slater knows how to surf. Maybe it's sped up, maybe it's not. That TUE joke was awesome, but I don't think anyone got it.

3. Beyond that, this thread is another fine example of: None us is dumber than all of us.

No 4. That GG is a Trebuchet. Throwing out mystical/historical balls of info that may or may not hit their mark and when they land on the targets head the trick is for them to decipher just what that missile was composed of.

Kelly Kardashian is now an Instagram influencer? With a cute story about how a friend "found" the board in his storage, at it is the best board Kelly ever rode! Such serendipity! And this magic board can be yours for three easy payments. Operators are standing by now!


*** You are ignoring this user ***
That is why I hate them for their stupidity. They were so close to greatness and squandered it.

Dan Mann said on a podcast months ago something like he made Kelly two boards some years back, he didn't like one and didn't really ride the other. Or something like that. I guess the FRK is the other.

It'll be free by the time a bunch of the boards from the test have cycled and are on craigslist and used racks, so it's all good in the hood.

Also Stab in the Dark gem: Jordy's shit-talking. From a yacht. In the Mentawais. With a free variety pack quiver.

"I'm not picking the best board, I'm picking the board that bogs the least."
"Never thought it was possible to bog both rails at the same time."
"What a waste of time fixing the nose. Should have been working on the rails."
"After all that to get heah. Numbah thet-teen remains unlucky. It's no good."

I'd be interested to hear a shaper's feedback. Would you rather see Jordy respect your travel-dinged board and then say he didn't like it in a pretty blunt way, or just have Dane let it wash into the rocks and get smashed around for a lifestyle shot?

The new SITD (went to the showing in Venice a few weeks back) is pretty meh. Mick was way too diplomatic and barely said a negative thing about any board and didn't seem like he was enthused enough even with the winning board that he would entertain having one (or any epoxy) in his quiver.

It's funny as soon as they revealed who won I've had no desire to see it. Well actually it's not funny, it's really stupid on their part. I'll still watch but it's been ruined IMO.

I want Slater to do it but I doubt the corporate structure of FW would allow that.

I haven't seen any of these, but want to check them out now.
I think KS would be fascinating because he seems like he is pretty tuned into his board designs and is able to articulate the effects of different features pretty well- at least more than most pros. Huge conflict of interest as FW owner, but he could get over that, I don't see why it would matter for the results

Did I get that right from the FRK videos? Does Dan Mann really only go frontside on all waves? Should we be suspicious about his designs in their ability to go well on backside waves?
