Swell Shaper

Jason Meyer last year started Quiver Concepts, a maker of hand-shaped surfboards based in Wilmington.

For each order, he works with the rider to customize their board, factoring in things such as skill level and type of surfing they plan to do.

Meyer starts with blanks from Green Room Board Co., a Wilmington manufacturer of surfboard composites, and then hand shapes the boards before sending them off to another local company, Savage Surfboards, to paint, glass and polish for finishing.

“One of the main reasons I started shaping was to make new, fun and different boards than I could find for sale in surf shops – asymmetric shapes, unique designs, customized art, etc.,” Meyer said. “I always encourage people to just have fun, and I love to make boards that make them stoked every time they go surf.”
