While I was down in Byron Bay the other week for the Surf Festival, I ran into Josh Hall and his dad Dave who were in Australia for the first time. He seemed to be settling in pretty well to how things roll in Oz. They had both just been in Bali and Josh had been shaping at The Deus Temple.
Josh is a hand shaper and was traveling with his templates and tools. He had been in contact prior to leaving home to see what the chances are of shaping a few boards while over here. I said it probably needed a bit more lead time to organise. But he is keen to come out for next years Fish Fry and so if you would like a board shaped by Josh you should start thinking about what you want and get in touch with him.
He loves his fishes and is pretty in tune with what Skip Frye is doing as well.http://deustemple.com/the-hall-way/
