Surfboard shaper Gene Cooper built an 11'4'' chambered C2 gun for The Ultimate Craftsman Project 2015.

The shaping process is extremely long and methodical. If you still believe shapers only spend half an hour producing the boards you ride, then this video is for you.

It's all about love and care for what you do. Gene Cooper won The Ultimate Craftsman Project 2015, at The Boardroom.

Watch as he cuts glues, shapes, chambers, glues again, fills, laminates, sands, hot-coats, fin build, polish. Absolutely fantastic.

Now more than ever, surfers have a great responsibility on the shoulders. Here's what makes a complete, contemporary wave rider.
