Any discussion on shaping, designing, repairing and riding surfcraft of any type or shape. Also a good place to ask the 'what board should I buy?' question.
maybe a dumb question, but for those that have is there much difference between shaping something long (9ft6 or so) vs something 6ft'ish... mainly are there any areas that the extra length makes more difficult?
a world of waves and a world of ways to ride them!

Yeah get the rocker wrong and it's all over. I had trouble putting the rocker in the fish I made and that was 5'10. I would make a template rocker curve and try and stick to it when your mowing that foam.

9'6" of rail line is hard to keep true, but also more forgiving in the water than a 6'2" hp shortboard outline.
in other words, a crudely shaped log with still be a log, and the same characteristics in a hp shape make it a dog...
hard to screw up a fish if you take your time...
learn the rules, so you can break them properly
