1989 Styro-Epoxy-Poly Longboard











In 1989, shortly after the Exxon Valdez oil spill, my Dad Peter St Pierre hotwired a big chunk of styrofoam into a surfboard blank and had Mike Slingerland shape it into this longboard. Gary Stuber glassed it with epoxy resin. My Dad rode it a few times and felt the board was too light, especially in offshore winds, so it was resanded and then glassed a second time with polyester resin. He added this groovy artwork, surfed it for the rest of the summer and then the board was retired to the garage where me and JM dug it out last weekend. My Dad somehow got all that crusty wax off the next day.
*note the Rip Curl Surfboards label as they were a big client for Moonlight Glassing in the 80’s.
