I wasn't clear on the distinction- all boards I'm considering were hand shaped by Mike Becker at Natures Shapes, but the "stock" boards were the ones he already had in the store. He said he could build me another if either of those didn't suit me. And the epoxy is not a popout but a hand-shaped board just like the poly, only he glassed it with epoxy.
So I guess I'm dickering with the details but it comes down to these points:
1. Do I want the little extra width of the board he has (22 3/4) or should I go custom to 22 or 22 1/2 ?
2. Do I want the plugs for sidebites (with a single box) on the board he has or do I go custom and just get a single box with smooth hips (no plugs)?
3. The epoxy vs. poly is a hard one for me. Old board was epoxy (allbeit a popout) and I loved it. Surfed polys in Costa Rica and was surprised that it wasn't as big a difference as I thought it would be, although those conditions were always perfect, glassy and with nice offshore winds, so maybe I didn't have the setting to really feel the difference.
