DEL MAR, California — Roger Hinds took top honors this weekend in the Icons of Foam shaping tribute honoring legendary shaper Rusty Preisendorfer presented by US Blanks. Hinds bested fellow craftsman Tim Stamps, Chris Christenson, Stu Kenson, Ward Coffey, & Dave Parmenter. In 2014 Hinds won the Boardroom’s Icons of Foam competition honoring Ben Aipa presented by US Blanks.
“All these shapers did a fantastic job,” said honoree Preisendorfer. “There were some subtle yet definitive design characteristics in this board particularly in the back half (Rusty 1984 “Occy” model). I’m honored and inspired by their efforts.”
“I’m really proud & humbled for back to back wins against such great shapers & honoring Rusty Preisendorfer,” said winner Roger Hinds. “Looking forward to next year!”
