Tried a few of the boards from local yocal shapers. What a waste of time and money. They are so up themselves, and as for the quality - rubbish. The shapes were rubbish to. Local shops have been slating Spider - what a bunch of whining cry babies. Spider has shaped for 20 world champions. Who they hell have they shaped for? Pathetic!!
20 world champions eh!!! somehow i doubt it
Funny i dont see any of the world elite riding spider. But i can name quite a few local shapers that have 100% shaped boards for pro's that were ridden in contests or at the very least were ghost shapers for bigger labels whilst doing their own local brand.
Its what works for you personally. I still say custom shaped is the way to go.
Might be worth pointing out that everyone tooting spiders epicness are clearly not forum regulars and probably either work for spider or are really amped on their boards so much so that they open a forum account and write a good review. To close my input in the topic i know of people that swear that bic/nsp are the best boards they have ridden - anybody who actually knows what they are talking about will find that laughable
