Local surfboard shaper, Josh Oldenburg, recently stopped by Aloha Beach Club and dropped off a fresh, quiver of surfboards that he made with Japanese shaper, Kenji Kono.
Earlier this summer Josh invited Kenji to visit and shape a collection of surfboards at his new, shop in San Diego. Although this wasn't their first shaping exchange (Josh shaped a collection of boards at Kenji's shop in Japan last year), the entire process was documented for a four-page feature in the newest issue of Japanese surf magazine, Blue.
I put together this short film, that documents the shaping process from start to finish, for Josh and Kenji. Make sure to stop by Aloha Beach Club, in North Park, to check out these classic shapes.
