Tag Archives: Shaping Surfboards

Goodbye, Master!

Our friend, Mitch and his wife are adventuring to Oregon and leaving us for awhile :( Trevor met him through Stoke Swap, an anti-creepy-Craigslist way of meeting surfers, trading and buying surfboards all in one place in front of their board room (great idea!!). After talking with him and the guys, Trevor decided he would shapeΒ a board with their help (his 25th birthday gift)! Trevor was in pure bliss. It is my opinion that the weeks it took to build 2 surfboards under the eye and care of Mitch, Trevor was at his happiest. Haha, I don’t mind believing that either because the man deserves be selfish when pursuing his favorite hobby with a couple of his favorite guys!

A look back on T’s favorite memories in Hawaii with The Blue Room!!

I’ve never seen him smile THIS big!!

His first! In memory of his Uncle Rich who was Captain of Anaheim’s HAZMAT unit and was a self-employed contractor who passed away from prostate cancer in 2012 (that’s why Trevor’s a big supporter of Movember, hence the mustache).

So a BIG thank you to The Blue Room, the guys, and especially, Mitch for introducing the art of shaping your own board! And enjoy your new adventure!

The thing grabbed T’s fin and almost ripped it off.

So Trevor learned how to fix his fin. Win win?

T’s still working on his board. It’s so gorgeous I almost want him to not ride it and display it somewhere instead.

All of T’s images were printed on rice paper and covered with fiber glass except this one. His Movember mustache was going to be airbrushed.

Silly bugs flocked to the newly glossed board. Thankfully they’ll get sanded out on the next shaping sesh.
