Glassing

Airbrush

Airbrushing

Getting a custom airbrush is where most shapes start their journey through the glassing process. Our airbrusher has over 30 years experience and can pretty much do whatever our customers want.

Laminating

Laminating

The Lamination is what gives each board it’s strength. We can do everything from pro-light laminations for extremely skilled riders to heavy super strong laminations for customers who want their boards to last and take a beating.

Pigments & Tint

Pigments & Tints

Pigments & Tints are used when the customer wants to have the color on his or her board last. Unlike airbrush boards that fade over time from excessive UV exposure from the sun, resin pigments & tints keep their rich hues and rarely fade since the colors are mixed in with the resin.

Hotcoat

Hotcoat

Hotcoating is one of the most overlooked yet very important step in the glassing process. A good hotcoat seals the lamination, keeps the board light, sets the sander up to get the best finish possible, and helps keep the original shape of the board from distorting.

Sanding

Sanding

Last but most important is the sanding. The sanders at Monstah Glass Hawaii are also the owners, so they are the last ones to touch the boards before the customer receives it. They make sure the edges are crisp and even, have an excellent finish, true to the shape and is up to our high standards. Wether it be some stoked surfer driving by to pick up his or her board, or some showroom in a surfshop overseas in Japan, we make sure they get the same consistent high quality surfboard that they come to expect from Monstah Glass Hawaii.
