Best log shaper in cornwall....?

Postby benjamin007 » Sun Jun 09, 2013 10:57 am

Looking at getting a custom single fin log made and want some advice and opinions on who's making real traditional logs out there....heading down that way tomorrow so wanna have a look....so far seed, empire and slide 65 have caught my eye....probably slide

Has anyone got one of the above?....just sold my Lufi so I want a proper log for small stuff as I ride a shortboard 80% of the time

Cheers!

Do you want a great shape or a great resin tint - a lot of people get the two confused :wink:
