Taking Shape: How to Make a Surfboard with Jen Smith

We caught up with Roxy Professional Longboarder Jen Smith in the shaping room as she was getting ready for the ASP Swatch Pro Girls China event. The 2x World Longboard Champion has a good shot at claiming her third World Title at this event, so she’s shaping her own surfboard for the contest, and she’s giving us a step-by-step on how to do it!

“I want this board to be fairly basic with a smooth, curvy outline, no nose concave, soft rails and a diamond tail. The template is one I made off of my first longboard I shaped. It’s basically the nose profile of my favorite Takayama longboard and the tail profile of one of my favorite quads by Jeff McCallum.
