The Walnut Glass Tiger

Mark Roberts from Glass Tiger Surfboards in the UK just sent me these shots to share of this great looking board. It has an EPS core and then a 1.5mm veneer of Walnut vacuum bagged top and bottom with glass under.

The rails are Chestnut with a Mahogany pin line

The nose and tail blocks are Iroko.

And the finish is varnish not glass to save weight.

So check out Glass Tiger to see what other great projects they have been up to. They are doing some nice work.
