What a difference ‘professional’ glassing makes!
As you may have read, the glassing quality of the last one, was, well, let’s say below par … So, with this one, I went to a different glassing service and the result is chalk and cheese compared to the last one. With many things, if you pay slightly more, you get a better product or result. Well that is NOT the case here.
I now have a new, custom surfboard in showroom condition. And, it was better value for money …
The previous one (i.e. the poor quality glassing) cost me $240. That was for 2 layers of standard 4 oz on the deck and 1 layer of 4 oz on the bottom, FCS equivalent fin plugs and the leash plug.
This one, was $220 for … wait for it … “S” cloth, 2 layers on the deck in 4 oz with a layer of 4 oz on the bottom, plus the carbon rail patches at the tail (as you can see in the pic), fcs fin plugs, and leash plug … plus, they sprayed the board white! So, not only a awesome glassing job, but all round better value.
Learnt my lesson.
Big thanks to Saltman aka Dave for suggesting this new glassing service.
