great shaper, no denying
but got to give it to Pyzel. #3, #5, and women's #4 in the world. 4 tour wins and all were in meaty surf. How many guys riding his guns at Jaws?

I'm stoked on Jon's success as I posted many times .

Tim has made at this point a wider range of boards both Handshaped and Comupter shaped .

Its about being a Shaper not team riders .

Josh Dowling would be great for other reasons . :smile2:

Lets keep it tracking on Tim . :smile2:

I love Josh Dowling in my Facebook.

Him and Ben Chipper bring so much good content to the table.

JD's posts often provoke a lot of ideation.

Greg has a great point, from what I've seen on Instagram and his website, Tim can literally shape anything. His longboards are top tier yet he shapes WCT shortboards for Courtney and Brett. Pretty impressive. And he has a mean pallet of shapes for the average joes out there. Good on you Greg for throwing out some praise for a fellow foam mower :beer:

I have a Grinder X on order that's still a couple weeks away. No experience on Tim's boards yet but I will say the communication/service during the order process was fantastic. He's super quick to answer emails and very helpful. His prices are more than fair as well. Luckily I got my order in a few days before his moratorium on orders.

I've also been getting boards from Tim for about the last 10 years, and his designs are definitely on par with anyone else out there. His boards go perfectly for the conditions in OC/LA, and just flat out work.

Stamps Fritter 5'10 x 20 x 2 5/8 ~33.8L


Stamps Flare 6'0 x 20 1/4 x 2 5/8 ~34L


Stamps Vulture 6'0 x 20 1/4 x 2 5/8 ~34L


Quiver Shot 1 (L to R: Vulture, Flare, custom step-up 6'3 x 18 3/4 x 2 1/2 ~30L)


Quiver Shot 2 (L to R: fX 5'10 x 21 x 2 3/4 ~37L, Sultan 6'6 x 21 1/4 x 2 5/8 ~38L)

Tim's a great guy to work with. I've had 3 Stamps boards and will definitely get more in the future. Seems like he's been super slammed since he stopped taking orders this month. That's a great problem to have. Hopefully he'll start taking more orders again soon.
