Shape Lessons

We here at Foam E-Z love to build boards! We also like to help others build boards. So naturally we think it's a great idea to offer Professional Shaping Lessons. The lessons are great for everyone, young and old, because each lesson is customized to meet your needs. Sure, you can learn to shape on your own by trial and error, which can be frustrating at times, or you can have someone guiding you along the way. With the help of a professional by your side your board will come out looking, and riding great. Along with books and DVD's, the Foam E-Z Professional Shaping Lessons are another way to educate board builders of every level.
