This surfing documentary offers an educational and entertaining look at the art of surfboard making, or "shaping."

Some wave riding and travel are included in the fun!

Dale Velzy, Rennie Yater, Dick Brewer, OLE, Billy Hamilton, Terry Chung,
Tom Morey, Midget Farrelly, John Gillis, Scott Dillon, and Mitchell Rae,
