Stamps Shaping His fX Model To Be Raffled Off At Our Party!!!

Tim Stamps will be shaping his new fX model in the Future Fins Fish Bowl Shaping Bay.  This will give party goers the opportunity to watch a “pro” shaper do his thing and one lucky customer will win the board!  That’s right if you are lucky enough to win this raffle you will win your own custom StampsfX 5 Fin Convertible Surfboard.  The board will be raffled off after Tim shapes it, around 1:30pm.  

Here are the details on the fX model according to Stamps:

fX Model
“The fX originates from my ever popular Quantum Fish design. This design has been blended with more ‘performance’ characteristics such as a more refined foil, enhanced bottom contours, and a slight rocker adjustments. A smaller wave board with limitless speed and unprecedented maneuverability. Ride approximately 4” – 6” shorter than your height.  The board is ideal for ankle to chest high surf.”

A little history on Tim Stamps:

Tim Stamps has been building surfboards since the age of 15, and is known for the progressive and innovative boards he creates for some of the most accomplished pro surfers out there, novices just figuring out what boards work best under their feet, and everyone in between.

In The Shaping Bay

It was his surroundings and upbringing that fostered his lifelong passion of surfboard building, and as a kid it didn’t take long to realize he had the shaping bug in his DNA. His desire to help, learn, create, build and dissect surfing into physics, geometrics, hydrodynamics and displacement theory began with two mentors. The first was his father Johnny Stamps and the second Rich Harbour.  Tim was under the tutelage of Harbour from the years 1985 through 1997 when Tim decided it was time to venture out on his own.  The rest is history as they say.

Stamps has been shaping a lot of boards for pros on the tour as of late.  He has been working closely with surfer’s Brett Simpson, Travis Logie, and Courtney Conlogue.  Keep your eyes out at the party as there is a high probability that one of these famous surfers will be attending.  

If you’re in need of new board or just want to have a deep conversation about surfboards stop by and see Tim, he’s just down the end of the street!

Win A Free Custom Surf Prescriptions Surfboard At Our Twenty Year Anniversary Party!

Who wants to win a new custom Surf Prescriptions Surfboard for basically free?  One lucky party goer at Foam E-Z's Twenty Year Anniversary Party will win a brand new custom surfboard from Surf Prescriptions.  The winner will be picked at NOON, then they will design the board of their choice with Jeff Doc Lausch on the computer at the party.  After that Doc will head to his shop to get the blank cut.  At 2pm the cut blank will be shaped live in Future Fins "Fish Bowl" shape room.  This will be a great opportunity for all party goers to watch Doc finish out the blank!!!   

What an awesome giveaway.  Stay tuned for more announcements.

A little back story on Jeff "Doc" Lausch:

He's been shaping since 1969, that's hard to believe since he's only fifty years old.  I guess that means he started at the very young age of six!!!  

Doc is known for shaping high performance shortboards, guns, alternative equipment, and outside the box innovations.  

Surf Prescriptions really hit the main stream in the late Eighties when Brad Gerlach came on board as their top pro surfer.  Soon thereafter Donavon Frankenreiter was seen cruising on Surf Prescriptions and helped develop and test some of their most unique models.  Over the years many pros have stepped foot into Docs shape room to have a board made.  

Some of Docs influences are Brewer, Stussy, Hurley, Timpone, Al Merrick, Rusty, and more...  Surf Prescriptions is based out of Huntington Beach, Ca where Doc builds the entire board under ONE roof.  Everything from shaping to airspray to glassing is done in the warehouse.  Stop by and say hello and check out the history.
