Resin soaked rails & Johan working the nose


Resin soaked rails & Johan working the nose
Went by Johan’s shop last night to watch him put on the final lam of glass on my new board (still a hot coat to do) and the top logo.

Beautiful process and Johan’s gotten so good at working quickly on such a huge surface. I think this might be his best solid color work to date!

“Here I am tucking the laps on Steve’s longboard.

Used some tint made for paint coloring from Home Depot, which makes for a nice even color job on the EPS, as well as a new technique for wetting the rail laps out. (flip the laps onto the resin filled deck and let them soak up resin, instead of moving the resin onto the laps = no froth)

All in all this is turning out to be my best tinted board. Stoked!” — Johan
