Who Shaped the LiteWave SurfBoard..?

Postby Kitebdr1962 » Wed Sep 19, 2007 3:58 am

I hear that the Board was Shaped by the "Good Old Boys" at Hana Crew...Tell Me that is true, and if so, are They back in the Business again with Kiteboarding Boards....If They were the Shapers, then They Rock, as always, and Thanks Guys for a Great Shape, like always...There are those of Us out here that miss Kiting Your Boards, and Yes, ya'll were way ahead of ya'll's time, and Thanks for looking into the Future like ya'll did....

G.K. was the shaper. One cool thing about fin boxes. You can use mini tuttle fins or fcs with tuttle adapters. Nice Dave...

Sorry to say, GK was not the Shaper, His idea's were used, I believe the Hana Crew guys did make it, and used some of their thoughts too...

I didn't physically shape the board just designed it and spent a lot of time in the shaping room. We actually worked with a few shapers, including Charles Williams from "Impact" and Eddie Sixberry from "Mindless". Went through a number of protos, but the Brazenton bros shaped the final one, adding a little of that Hana Crew magic to the mix.
I can't tell you if they are getting back in the biz, but it would sure be nice. Maybe since surf shapes are so popular now they might show some interest?
