The purpose of having models is to create a starting point for a design. Many board builders will encourage you to get stock dimensions. It's easier. Which is fine…some of the time. The beauty of working one on one with me/Rusty is that I am your imagination with council. Some things to consider: surfers are so caught up on volume these days they completely neglect other equally or more important issues on the design. It is very important that you choose between volume and thickness. Occasionally you can have both. You need to let me know which way you want me to lean. Also, over time the stock dimensions will vary from what you get when you program a board. Why? Over time, designs evolve usually with very subtle changes. Colors on surfboards shipped to customers may vary from colors ordered by customers due to countless factors such as differences in color modes on image files, browsers, palettes, printer’s ink, etc. Such variances in colors do not constitute acceptable grounds for return. Please trust me and my over 50 years (100,000+ boards built) experience. I make boards for some the of the best surfers in the world and I personally do customs for beginners. I truly want to make you the best board for your needs. Trust your Shaper.
HOW IT WORKS: Select from one of the board models below and customize it to your liking. Once purchased, Rusty will reach out to you to fine tune the equipment even further to your rider profile. Here he will provide specs and dims with visuals. Once you approve the design, we will start shaping!
*Please note that once the final design receives your approval no further changes will be allowed.
