  • I see John Carpers Instructional videos Shaping 101, Airbrushing 101, and glassing 101 have made it onto dvd.

    I'm thinking about buying them. Has anyone seen them? Are they worthwhile?

    Thanks in advance.

  • I was watched the Glassing video. It was pretty cool, but it still left me with some questions. I think he or somebody should put out a real time video of the glassing situation. Cut out the curing times, but as for the process for each step of the lamination... it should only be about 15 minutes a-go... I like seeing the real deal, condensing it cuts out some of the tediousness of it, but especially since it has been released on DVD... seems made for that kina stuff......

           Good night and God bless!!!!!

    Are actually referencing Red Skelton, my Dad's favorite comic? If so, you're even more Old School than I thought.
    In my book, Old School is cool. 
    It's no better to be safe than sorry....

  • I've heard that the Master Glasser and Shaper DVDs are pretty amazing, shaping by Jim Phillips and glassing by Roger Brucker.

  • Carper's shaping vid isn't bad.  The glassing vid is so vague its almost useless.  Phillips Master Shaper vid is the opposite.  So detailed and informative its overwhelming to the first timer.  I actually found the surfboard design and construction and Surfer Steve books (both available free online in pdf format) to be the most informative and helpful, but I'm less of a visual learner than some.

    the jim phillips vid has a lot of detail, the john carper lacks any real significant info. on shaping
