30 year veteran shaper Alan Gibbons has left his ghost shaping gig and is concentrating on shaping custom surfboards full time. He has a new website up:
Allan Gibbons shaping movie clip.
Allan’s team guy, Shaun Roche getting epic barrels video clip.
Killer flex tail fish and custom cool composites as seen on the fine 70percent blog.
The Moonlight Glassing showroom will be stocking handshapes by Allan from time to time, including the cherry 7’0″ quad semi-gun Dusty is holding in the photo above. Stay tuned for updates.

His boards are beautiful looking. I had never seen the logo and didn’t know the name, but when I saw it in the hotcoat room I was truly impressed.
Who’s the jarhead in the photo?

Easy there, Boingo. You don’t want him to rip off your head and crap down your neck, maggot:)
Nice looking surfboard, BTW.

I have a great custom quad from Allan (funny, same color resin tint and lokbox combo). Everything from the concept to the end result was smooth handshaped goodness. Great shaper to work with. His flextail fish and composite stuff is mind boggling.
