Glass Tiger, is run by me Mark Roberts.

I make bespoke, custom, wood/EPS, surfboards that are not externally glassed.

The boards are constructed with hard wood veneers and hard wood parabolic rails, over an EPS blank.

I set up this blog to document the latest boards, developments, and generally any other stuff thats in the mix.

I have these two little boards sitting in my workshop at the moment all ready to go..
One is a 6'8 egg, 2+1 set up and the other is a 6'2'' quad/thruster.
Both built as Loose fit stock boards, but due to an order mix up I still have them and they are going at £400 each, rather than the normal £650 ticket price.
Go on grab one!

Full dims are-
egg 6'8 x 21 3/4 x 2 3/4
5 set 6'2'' x 21 x 2 1/2

The government wants to sell off more than half of our national forests to private firms. This could mean ancient woodlands are chopped down and ruined. Wildlife would have to make way for Centre Parcs style holiday villages, golf courses and commercial logging.

We need to stop these plans. Ancient forests like The Forest of Dean and Sherwood Forest are national treasures - once they are gone, they will be lost forever.

A huge petition will force the government to rethink its plans. If we can prove how strongly the public are against this, they will have to back down. Please sign the petition now.

Pauls bonzer.. 3 coats of varnish so far... 2 to go..
The template is based on the Cambell brothers POD out line, clean and simple with a 21 1/2'' central wide point. It has a thinned tail, with a 'hump' to accommodate the fin box.
The bottom contours and fin set up are traditional 5 fin bonzer layout with channels between the side fins...

lights on

I was locking up the shed tonight and then saw this back lit stack of boards through the door way... things change when the clocks go back.
