    Any hilbers sightings recently? Still trying to locate for my 300.00 deposit return. Has not responded to me in 8 months. Is he dead? Drug rehab? Mexican prison? Jesus

    Thanks C
    Thanks Guys. I’m a patient and generous person but don’t appreciate being taken advantage of.

    I agree..... I would guess he is having some kind of bump in his life after all this months of no shade of BJ/Fineline in the scene/market....
    In all perspective, this is an unfortunate situation :(

    I'm still dreaming to have him shape me a SOS someday...or that board based off the mid-eight foot balsa Quiggs which he called it Sweet Young Thing (???) that my old buddy in Japan owned at one point.
    Fingers crossed this master craftsman comes back...

    EIGHT MONTHS? Holy shit. You are very patient as I wouldn't be nearly as nice. In 2020 if you can't communicate in a timely matter, well fuck your business, there's no need to keep a customer hanging that long ESPECIALLY once you have their money. There will obviously be apologists here because OMG he surfs! I'd be talking to my credit card company, Paypal or however you paid to get this reversed - though it's probably too late now.

    That’s not cool to take a deposit and not refund it.

    I used to order my high performance short boards from this shaper in Hawaii and he would constantly forget to text back and act like you were bothering him if you ever contacted him. Eventually just stopped ordering and everyone else I knew did too.

    what kind of fineline are you looking for and where are you located?
