Ramos Shapes

Recently I definitely feel like I have been living  the dream (LTD).  Surfingeveryday,  spending  time with my family and building a surfboard.

  The water is always warm even if the beers aren’t always cold.  I have made a really good connection with a local shaper Rogelio Ramos.  He agreed to let me rent space in his shop to build Peter’s board.  His shop “Dingbatz”  basically  handles all of the ding repair in Sayulita.  Rogelio also shapes and glasses boards under his own label Ramos Shapes.   This means Rogelio along with his two employees Julio and Salvatore are extremely busy.  They are very good at what they do and have the best repair/shaping/glassing  shop in central Mexico.  I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work next to Rogelio.  I learned a ton of  new information covering all aspects of surfboard design, shaping, building and finishing.  As well as being  a pro level longboarder he tirelessly gives to the local junior surfing program. He is also a great guy to sit down and drink a beer with.  Any time you need a new board or a board repaired in Sayulita go see Rogelio and the boys at Dingbatz.
