If you like strange boards like this we’ll do one again in another 20 episodes.
Tom Wegener is on the fringes of what most surfers consider normal. He’s known amongst a quiet subculture of surfers as an eclectic character who primarily makes surfboards out of Paulownia wood. That’s enough to make a shaper stand out, but he also makes boards in excess of 18 feet and 80 lbs (30 kg) in weight.
His shapes, designs and materials are definitely not for everyone but his personality is contagious and listening to him talk gives me the impression that he could read a grocery list and make it sound exciting.

Nice little video on shaping and surfing what I’ll call Almost-Alaias. Fun watch because of the shaper discussion and surfing, and for both a Miki Dora reference and appearance by Skip Engblom.
