Congratulations to Matt Calvani, Bing's Master Shaper for winning the Florida Shape Off at Surf Expo. The end goal was to replicate an iconic Dick Catri fish using a balsa blank as the canvas. Matt described the 4 hour project as a tiring but satisfying experience. Especially with taking the win. Congrats Matt!
