Yes could but most shapers tell you one thang and leads to another on turn around. Plus I did not want to contact yet because I am not ready to order just thinking out loud shrug

Who is floated ?

Sounding a bit like someone in the industry .

We already had a recent post by one of his customers that he's in the Waialua Sugar Milll near Eric .

I just posted a pic of him at Richards place in town .

Lots of glassing in the area .

I think the HB based one is Duke Aipa, Akila's brother. He seems to be doing some of Ben's shapes and some of his own. I don't think he does Akila's boards.

Akila has access to many great glassers , things have really improved in the last 2 years .

Richard runs his machine really well too .

Filling an order should be very easy .

Agreed.

Those Akila's look fantastic, but that's only part of the equation.

Kelly's headspace, physical well-being, competitive savy and desire all had to be at the top of his game as well. They lined up perfectly for this contest.

Not quite sure why Kazuma has a chip on his shoulder, but it's definitely there.

Thats not a " Chip" thats his pure excitement

Aipa was his mentor and that is Huge

Not to many Builders and Humans like Matt out there - maybe none :-)
