    i had a few beers and enjoyed this. i also burned my ass on the hot water pipe in my apartment so i was pretty focused on that pain rather than the movie.

    C. I think everyone interested should make a board start to finish on their own. IMO shaping a blank is only a small part of making a board...just shaping doesn’t give full appreciation to the full package. Everyone not interested or incapable of using tools should leave it to the pro’s in their country and quit buying shitty shit from overseas.

    for what it's worth, Tyler and Ryan are both pretty skilled with a planer. Alongside building his own brand, TW has also been shaping production for Hobie and was taught by the Martins..

    Not sure if when you said "B) Leave it to the skilled" you were implying that the folks in the film weren't skilled.
