No, he shapes for pro's, then markets to the public what the pro's are riding, which appeals to many. If you buy one off the rack it won't be one he shaped, just one he designed. Custom is cheaper becausen local shapers don't have the marketing overhead and name recognition that Al Merrick does. Some local shapers are cheaper, by a lot, some are not, depending of who you go with, but thier boards cost the same to make. One local shaper here charges more than Al Merrick, and people pay for it, he earned it through years of quality products. My shaper is cheaper and I buy a board from him every year.8ballinthepocket wrote: I don't get it - custom are cheaper?? Is that because all Al Merricks are shaped by Al Merrick, or what?
