how Kazuma shaped my custom surfboard part 1

video

This is the first of a series of short videos that I took while Matt Kazuma Kinoshita was designing and shaping my new custom 6.10.
My plan is to publish them on a weekly base. Lots of interesting information, don't miss them if you want to learn something about modern surfboards design.
I felt extremely privileged to have the possibility to see my new board being designed under my eyes and to spend some time with a super busy (and super nice) guy like Matt.
He's doing incredibly well and his boards are begin appreciated all over the world.
Here's a couple of photos of the new shop that just opened just above the Haiku cannery.

Very Nice GP! Great boards.
I hope you post a lot of pics! I´m a amateur shaper, so i´ll be very excited.
What are the dimensions of the board? 6´10....

Cheers

Big respect to all the amateur (and non) shapers out there.

My 6.10 is 20 wide and 2.75 thick. It's thick in the middle, but (as Matt says in the video) it's thin on the rails.
I've used to board twice in shitty waves (that's what we got this week) and I can tell that it paddles great and it's fast on the wave. Didn't really have the chance to do a real turn yet, but I have the feel that the board is exactly what I needed...
Stay tuned for the next videos, you'll like them.
