Surfers Making Surfboards for Surfers (the way it’s meant to be)

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!

    Yeah. And Moonlight Glassing rocks!
    I have one board glassed by Moonlight and it rocks.
    You guys rock.

  • Making it happen for hundreds of unsuspecting surfers who get on their boards for the first time and get so stoked that they get an eye twitch. Elliot is the man.

    That’s nice work. If you ain’t wet, its best to be dusty and to smell like resin! Shape for show, glass for dough!

    NICE to see (as always promoted by the Moonlight Family) locally made surfboards by expert craftsmen, for surfers who care…a declining slice of the surfing demographic as society moves forward(?).
    That satisfaction’s all that’s left for us. Any kook can buy the coolest new style or cheapest pop out and go surf, but to talk to your shaper, pick a board up at the factory, surf w/the work crew on occasion…THAT’s the real soul of surfing.
    not fedoras…
