Fiberglass & Resin

Trevor had Friday off and spent most of it at the Blue Room working on his surfboard. Glassing the board starts now:

T’s mentor, Mitch, shows him how to spread the resin over the fiberglass evenly on the bottom of the board.

The emblem was designed by Trevor’s brother-in-law, Bob, an AWESOME artist! He incorporated different elements of Rich’s life: His badge (he was the Captain of Anaheim’s HAZMAT unit), a sledge hammer (for his time as a contractor), the year of his birth, his initials, and a lyric from the Red Hot Chili Pepper’s song, Can’t Stop.

    Trevor, what a tribute to Rich! It made me cry all over again! We had a great time in Hawaii with you and Marissa! I love you! Sheri

  2. Wow Trevor!!! What an awesome job!!! It really makes you appreciate the work that goes into creating a board. Can’t wait to see pictures of you surfing on it. We love the logo. See you soon. Hugs

    • Aunt Suzie, We now have a greater appreciation for shapers and a different outlook on pop outs. The day he rides it, I’ll be out there with the GoPro :) Counting down the days til Thanksgiving!
