Boards and WA shapers

Lads,

Had a call from Todd, who surfs up in the northern beaches of Perth, Yanchep area with a couple of other kneelos. He's looking to get back into this great sport and even join the club.

As we know getting someone to shape you a board in Perth has its problems, does anyone know any good reliable kneeboard shapers that you would recommend locally?

He's also keen to maybe pick up a 2nd hand board so all you who have spares lying around get in touch. Todd 0437 660 004, or post to the blog.

cheers

  1. I called Mark Fitzpatrick and gave him Todd's number. I have 5 of Marks boards from 5'8'' to 6'2'' and they fly.

    1. Hey, I've lost touch with fitzy and have had 3 boards from him, all crackers that handled WA waves so well. I used to have a flashpoint that was great in east coast waves but just didnt work in WA, appreciate if you can send contact for fitzy.
      cheers

  3. G'day Todd ,
    welcome aboard , can't sought you out with a newy but I will give you my slant on local as opposed to quality east cost shapes . DON'T WAST YOUR DOUGH ON LOCAL. If you are truly serious about your surfing look to a few of the committed shapers such as Hart , Parkes , Ponsford , Luke and a couple others because what is shape local is simply........not serious ! These blokes have been at the forefront of WORLD kneeboard progression for a very long time and know their shit and don't think you'll be paying much more to have one sent to you as my last one added a measly $70 to the total . Maybe Alex Noy is willing to trim his stockpile ?
