Bryon Olson best shaper in the world!...?
« on: July 19, 2013, 09:56:42 AM »
According to the head boss of Tower, their new in house shaper, Mr. Bryon Olson, might be the best shaper in the world.  I never heard of him, but then I am way in the boonies.  Is this guy really quite possibly the best in the world?

Also, when did Tower start putting advertizing on The Zone? Can I advertize my business on here? Has nothing to do with SUP but would be cool.  ;D

Byron is a friend. A really good epoxy craftsman, (from my experience), and shapes some really good looking boards. Don't know about THAT claim.

Tower is a welcome site sponsor of the Zone.

They have made changes that we view as very smart and which have responded directly to some of the critiques which had been raised here in the past.  Companies that listen and respond tend to move forward.  Now that Tower has opened a USA production facility and shaping is being done by a shaper with chops...well, they are a much different target, but, of course, competition remains a reality.

Good answer! I have been looking at getting a iSUP from them for over a year now for family.

Good to see a company respond to customers.

Can I pass that rate info onto others who are in the SUP industry? I think they would be super interested in getting more exposure through the best forum on SUP. Thanks!

Tower and/or their affiliates still seem to be spamming up Craigslist.  Some of their listings fall into the misleading category.  Doesn't look like the practice has been curbed based on a quick search.

Good God!  They're not claiming that's PonoBill, are they?

Linter I am afraid he may be...looked on his face book page and his profile picture has him on a wave ski...I do not see that as a problem, but a plus...the deeper his skill set in wave craft the deeper his understanding of what works and why...don't think one dimensional...
