SUP shaping with Mark Johnson of Hobie surfboards

Having a sponsor like Hobie surfboards has been really fun because I live just up the street and when I want to do some R&D or try out some new designs or even shape something new and exciting to try in the waves, it’s all at my finger tips.

So today, I met up with Hobie shaper, “Mark Johnson” to cut and shape a new 8’6 shorter version of my 9’9 CP Stinger model. I love being able to see a board go through all the stages of being shaped, to glassing and then sanding etc. I really get to appreciate the board once i am in the water riding my new creation.
