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.

Its all plane to sea

I've recently made some solid chestnut wood hand planes. This is a pin tailed plane with double handed grip, and funky channels. It has a raspberry red stain on the tail, and can be fitted with a rubber wist support so there is less chance of loosing it in bigger surf.
Hand planes are huge fun, and as a stand up surfer up until now I hadn't made much of a foray into body surfing, but trying these things out really brings home the simple pleasure of you and the wave in a very uncomplicated way.
