Dave Parmenter shares his passion for surfing and surfboard shaping. He believes if you are shaping boards by computer, you are not a true craftsman: “You have to get in there and work with these things on a three-dimensional level and build them with your hands.” A single-fin surfer, Parmenter makes boards to surf the way he wants to surf and his advice for those that are interested in shaping is to “be interested in everything. Try every surfboard you can get your hands on.”
