Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
“Surfboard Shaping and Glassing” is the fast and easy way to master the art of designing and building modern, high-performance surfboards. This definitive guide provides detailed and clear instructions along with scores of pictures, charts, and illustrations at every step of the building process. All that is needed to begin creating surfboards are a good attitude and some readily available tools and materials. <br><br> Drawing on decades of design evolution based on the work of scores of master shapers, the book guides the shaper in choosing the correct shape and measurements needed to tailor the surfboard to a given wave type and surfer. The shaping process is then detailed. Time honored techniques usually handed down from master to apprentice are exposed in detail. It also details the steps needed to permanently seal a shaped surfboard using fiberglass and resin. After fins are added, the result is a complete, high-performance surfboard comparable in quality to even the most expensive brands.
