Shapers who stocked local shops with a few boards, but spent most of their time making custom board orders for locals. If you wanted one of their boards you’d usually walk into a surf shop and fill out a Xeroxed form with a drawing of a surfboard on it. I have a Steve Coletta board that I cherish more than even the boards I’ve made myself. ADVERTISEMENTA few months later, my local San Francisco surf shop called to tell me my board was ready for pickup. Good for Steve.
