Simon S. Christchurch, New Zealand.

"I have been a frothing surfer for almost 40 years and have bought and rode a lot of surfboards from mostly your now major shapers such as Channel Island and JS for example.

About 7 years ago I had Christian shape me a board and from the moment I first rode it I felt it was something special. From then on Christian has shaped me another 7 boards, all of which have been exceptional.

I have not bought or rode from another shaper in that time. I believe Christian is a very talented shaper and has customised the boards to my ability and needs with skill and expertise.

The artwork that he provides creates a further special aspect to the boards he shapes. I would totally recommend his talents to all passionate surfers who are looking to break out of the mainstream shapes."
