One of the most common question I get asked is, how long does it take me to shape "a" surfboard? Not for custom orders but just the act itself of shaping.
Sometimes it's hard for the person asking to grasp that there is more to building a board then the step of shaping foam, and especially building a brand with it.
Shaping foam is like cooking food.
Cooking food is just a critical part of a restaurant establishment , but so many other steps go along with it.
All steps exciting and fun if done right.
