Provided you are honest with yourself and buy a board with suitable volume, rocker & size for your ability - you'll be no worse off.
Why is it everybody thinks their local shaper is good?, why is it that people mysteriously think the local shaper who cranks out 4 boards a week or whatever is some gruru whose mysteriously dialed into the local conditions.
Buying "local is best" is sometimes a complete myth. They are humans who flesh-up blanks, turn up to work with hangovers, have bad days & stuff up orders, don't like you & think you're a dick (sometimes) and frankly...don't listen to your order as you make it.
The reason top shapers use machines is (a) they can afford to, (b) they get better & more consistant results, and it's a much healthier way to shape, (c) they can tweak their designs easily & make changes, (d) they get way better rails out of a machine and (e) because so many people want to buy their boards they have to.
Most local shapers would get onto machines if their economies of scale warrented it & if they could afford them.
