Epoxy pop outs are extremely toxic polluters, one reason they are made in third world countries. Shaped epoxy, hand fiber glassed is a different story. So is epoxy glassed polyurethane boards.

One such fellow is Wes Holderman nice traditional/ modern single fins. Mostly one learns by himself by doing it. Always you pick up bits & pieces from shapers, Riding your own shapes of course, and sometimes riding boards that don't float well because they got too thin while being perfected.
