I LOVE shaping surfboards and I'm kinda obsessed with this craft. Even though I am about to shape my 191th 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.

Photo shoot

Have you noticed my new welcome page pictures?
The photographs are from my friend, Eri Morita. She is a professional photographer  (erimorita.com) but also a fervent surfer and that is how we met few years ago, sharing waves at our beloved home spot.
Recently she asked me if she could take some pictures of my shaping activity for her portfolio. Here are  some photographs from the photo shoot. 
Thank you Eri for capturing so well my passion of shaping!

PS for Stephanie: I was shaping your long board during the photo shoot :)
