My takeout from the Pipe Masters. Caity Simmers has bigger balls than our resident waterman Loofy. She’s phenomenal.

Crazy wave from Baron too.

That board he made looked and surfed like dogshitt.

His own theories are equally subjective.

Yeah I’m not sure anyone truly knows. Many Shapers are egotistical and always seem to think they’ve got the special sauce. Weird bunch

Is there any shaper out there that Doesn’t have some sort of weird ego/complex?

I can’t recall ever dealing with one that was down to earth.

Big names with egos in check
Shane Egan.
Rod Dahlberg.

Slightly lesser name but famous brand
Dale Wilson

Cory in Torquay also seems like no ego.
