After many delays, promises, hic ups and teeth pulled through Tunnel Vision Glassing recently, (who's quality and reliability has gone down the tube), I have found a new glassing shop with excellent quality, consistency and shorter lead times. Using Silmar resin and Surf 9 cloth with extra wide laps for strength, 10 strands of rovings + 2 layers of 6 oz for fins these glass on quads are not for the average glass shop. Here's a new 6'0 Quartet for Mark Ekland. It's finally packed and ready to go mate!
Renaud, Benoit and the family at UWL Surfboards in La Rochelle have been so welcoming. I am impressed with the quality of craftsmanship, dedication and passion for surfboard building. It's a pleasure to work with them and I've heard it's the best factory in Europe. They have offered me an awesome shaping bay to get to work in and at lunch time each day, all the staff sit down at a trestle table ladened with a mean feast prepared in the factory kitchen by Renaud himself. Nice style!
