Surfing School - Glassing - Preparing


Before touching the blank, clean your hands with clear acetone. Blow off and remove any excess foam dust from the blank with the hand brush and place it deck up on the glassing stand. You are ready to start glassing.

(note: the following paragraph applies to glassing without the benefit of bleached cloth). With the 1" tape roll in your right hand (right handed), and using your other hand as a guide along the rail, walk a tapeline down each side of the board abut 6 inch wide. Use the tape roll on edge to ensure the tape is completely attached to the blank.

Next, using the cutting tool (remember: a cut is only necessary with non-bleached cloth) held at arms length in your right hand, carefully walk each rail with the cutting tool held exactly at a right angle to the blank rail and with the razor edge cutting the tape slightly. The attached tape will be cut along both rails and then the outer tape removed leaving the board taped as shown in Figure 01.
