Jacob Young came to our shop a while back and seemed to know what he wanted right out of the gun. He bought a blank and booked a couple of sessions with Grant in the Shape Box. Jacob had a great feel for the surfboard and caught on quick. His first finished shape was a success! Not only does he shape surfboards but also shapes handplanes. Apparently Jacob is a direct relative of Abe Lincoln (former president), therefore he used the name for his surfboard brand. Check out his blog you'll see he's a pretty creative guy and seems to be years ahead of himself. Keep up the great work!
