In the February 2008 issue of Surfer magazine,
In the Where Anything Goes article by Sam George,
On page 142,
It reads, You can work at Moonlight Glassing, laminating boards with wallpaper squeegees or at the Surftech distribution center–LOL.
That is quite the contrast, you can be Gary Stuber who has been glassing boards for 40 years or some minimum wage kid organizing the container fresh from Thailand.
Thanks to Sam George for acknowledging that we do indeed exist (even if we don’t technically use wallpaper squeegees).
