You can choose high waist shapewear, it's very comfortable and can be used as undergarments.

When you have a world class shaper like Sam Eagan on your doorstep why go and get a copy of an already ugly shape? :D :D

My tongue is partly in my cheek and partly out but I reckon getting someone else to copy another shapers work is a quick way to get a crap board. Plus many shapers simply won't copy someone elses work (some will).'I think with Firewire you will probably find the construction has plenty to do with how that board felt for you so you would need to keep an open mind with the copy.

Sam's shapes are way nicer than Firewire IMO without anyone having to copy someone elses work. :wink:

Anyway it looks like it all ended ok for ya.

Using a surfboard as an undergarment? That would be rather itchy wouldn't it?

Last time I checked balls and fibreglass fragments don't go together

Because Sam charges nearly twice the price of Paul parkes, for in my experience no better a product...just a brand name (Had two Sam's boards and now on a Triple P).

I can appreciate a shaper producing a piece of art and not wanting it copied. I can also appreciate a shaper not choosing to copy another artists board too. However Firewire have no problems taking Nevs shapes and mass producing them. Obviously, either does Nev, as long as he gets his cut....and who truly knows if it's a 100% Nev shape anyway. Do you reckon Da Vinci would allow perfect replicas of his work to be mass produced? And if he did, would he have a problem if one artist wanted to try to produce a 1-off replica himself? Also, isn't imitation the purest form of flattery? Food for thought. Sounds like a good topic for a new thread to me.

Thanks "Surfer" for the website. Cheers guys.
I did an exact copy of the Mona Lisa years ago , but with a was pretty good too...
