Being a company based in San Diego, it’s impossible for us not to be influenced by surf culture. The beach, the waves, the laid back lifestyle is a staple of what makes this city so great. Because of this, there are so many surf shops around San Diego – yet, none are quite like Shaper Studios.

Founded by Chris Clark and Derrik Kapalla, Shaper Studios is a one of a kind surf workshop based in North Park that focuses on the lost art of shaping – creating your own surf board from scratch. They offer memberships, shaping lessons, glassing lessons, workshops, tutorials, and the occasional amazing party & performances. Basically, it’s the coolest company in all of San Diego. We had the opportunity to put together a short promo piece for the Shaper guys, and really tap into what makes them unique.

BEACH BLANKET BOHEMIA, ART / MUSIC / FASHION

Join us this Saturday, April 5th, for an all day event at Shaper Studios North Park. We kick off the party at 1PM with The People’s Movement (MOVMT) sample sale of their eco-hip footwear and apparel.

At 7:00 PM we are opening the doors for a benefit art show hosted by West Coast Creatives. Proceeds from the art show will benefit cancer research efforts by City of Hope.

At 8:00 PM the live music kicks off with grooves by The Moves. The Moves is a American Folk group lead by frontman Timothy Norton and features a group of extremely talented musicians playing their hearts out on almost every instrument you can think of. They had their first performance at a Shaper Studios private charity event in early March 2014 and they got the crowd dancing the night away.

The second band, Golden Beaches, is no stranger to the San Diego surf rock scene. This is authentic as it gets. If the trio shows up wearing shoes, it’s probably snowing outside.

Headlining the music festival is the surf-punk rock team, The Frights. Their tunes are rooted in “no-cares” punk rock but are guaranteed to get stuck in your head and get you bouncing off the walls.

All Ages, $10 donation at the door. See you all there.

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT / JANUARY 2014

Dustin Degler handshape surfboardJANUARY MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: DUSTIN DEGLER

Dustin has really shown his passion for shaping and he’s making some insanely functional short boards. This month we got the chance to know Dustin outside the shaping bay when he offered to consult on, and supply Shaper Studios with, steel materials used to outfit the entire shop with state-of-the-art production racks. (see photo of Dustin next to our new set of double racks)

Dustin has been a member for almost a year now and he just finished up his second handshaped surfboard. Taking a private lesson for his first surfboard in the Summer of 2013, Dustin kept a detailed notebook of his shaping instruction.

Dustin decided to craft another short board for #002; this time without much assistance from the Shaper staff, just a few quick tips and hints here and there. He opted for a 5 fin set up with the new screwless FCS II fin system. The fins just snap into place and have a superior fit in the surfboard.

MEMBERS ONLY #003
