that sure looks like a Dano board. I am sure you get a good look at them because you use the same shop. I heard there all machined cuts and DAVE or whoever almond is doesn't even shape them. Dude if you want real soul use a planer and a template. Get your own trip, copy cats die fast look at Creme or soon to be tanner surfboards. Be more original. Just because you pull the tail in or the nose in still means you copied it. Making fins smaller but the same out line is still copying.

dude, i thought we were beyond this.

we're the only ones around here not dabbling with machine shaping. Template and Planer on every board. I'm the guy who shaped a couple boards with no power tools, just to try it. So don't lecture me about computerized shaping.

Give us a break as we still try to find our own way, we've been relying exclusively on custom orders up until now... so we haven't had the creative freedom to experiment. Like I said before, come take a closer look at some of the brand new boards we hand shaped and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks for the encouraging words the morning of my grand opening.
-Dave
