Glassing materials?

Postby Col.kiteman » Thu Jun 05, 2014 12:33 am

I was wondering where the best/cheapest place to get fiberglass supplies from around here. Im playing around with a couple ideas, but don't want to throw a ton of money at it? Perhaps somebody just did some spring cleaning from their windsurf days. Any direction here would be appreciated. Many thanks

I *think* Ollie recently posted that he had a bunch of glassing supplies. PM OliverG here on BAK to see if they're still available...

Fiberglass supply. They may still have a location in ca, not sure. Nope Washington only. They have the stuff though...

They used to be in Bingen - just a convenient trip over the bridge from the hood - but they moved somewhere up towards Tacoma I hear. I stopped there yesterday looking for resin and they're definitely not there anymore. :(

+1 for fiberglass supply

Just give them a shout and they can walk you through the options.

I recently glassed a 5'4" Alaia. Called them up and chatted with them and they got me set up.

If your using epoxy Resin Research is the way to go!

+1 for Resin Research.

If you want a brick and mortar store, it is hard to beat Svendsen's Marine in Alameda.
