Moonlight Glassing’s Elliot Reinecke taking down the gloss seam on an 8’0″ Gary Hanel egg for Surfy Surfy Surf Shop. Elliot is using the DeWalt sander which is nice lightweight tool, although I always found the straight handle to be a little awkward compared to my beloved Milwaukees.
Elliot is a good example of a surfboard finisher with excellent control and finesse when it comes to dialing in the final details. Surfboard edges are crucial to performance and the good sanders in the industry can get them just right.
Note that his shorts are covered in resin drips and not just dust. This is because Elliot contains a lot of skills across the custom surfboard building spectrum.
Hooray for Elliot and hooray for handmade surfboards!
