I LOVE shaping surfboards and I'm kinda obsessed with this craft. Even though I am about to shape my 220th board I'm still considering myself as a novice but I hope to become a master one day... This blog is a virtual portfolio and a diary of my journey in the shaping world. Feel free to leave comments or contact me directly at valerie@meremadesurfboards.com.

Wounded Mère-Made surfboard

fin cuts: better on my board than on my head :)

My new longboard (board#011) is not new anymore :(
It now has some stitches. My friend's board flew towards me after she dropped in on me (not on purpose) and then fell.
The funny part of the story is that I don't know to repair boards... My husband did. Good team :)


  1. NOooooooooooooo!!!! :-(....
    I would cry if that was my Mo .

    1. I could not cry as I did not want my friend who ran over me to feel even worse...
