Hi,

I just got back from the goldy and did a course with
Richard Harvey on shaping boards. I shaped my own board and now I want to shape another one here in tassie. I have a planer and a stringer planer, but that's it. No surf form or any other tools. I want to work at any tassie shaper's bay to make a board and just leave it at a tassie shop, get it sold, and try to get feedback on my work. Just to become better at it. Can anyone help? I'm only interested in the shaping side, ill pay a shaper to glass. Thanks for reading!

hi galapagos, the only commercial shaper i know these days is nic stranger down south "stranger surfboards" you could try him, not sure if there are any on the north west coast still shaping.

Thanks again for Your Help riverider! Not many shapers in tassie. I might have to hold off on my shaping until i move to the mainland. Or when i go back to my country. It will be very cheap for me to set up my shaping Bay there.
