shapers in NZ - im a small time shaper in santa cruz have my own company and ghost shaper for stretch, m10...im curious about the NZ board industry. its hard to find any real info about whats going on down there. does anybody know if there could be a possibility for me to come down for a few months, and work for any local companies? can anyone give me a push in the right direction? id love to get away from the rat race here on the way over to indo. being a local boy from SC i know about inviting in outsiders cuz we have a heavy local vibe here, but im a quiet respectful guy who can surf well and make some beautiful boards...anyone kind enough for some real info would be appreciated.
