-This video is fantastic. Roger Brucker lets you in on his secrets and shows you the mastery of the craft. This is by no means just on the basics, but covers everything anyone doing boards as a hobby could hope for.
-I've been through my copy 2x now, in some places more. Lots of good info and technique in this latest addition to the Damascus lost art series. This is top notch stuff that Damascus is putting out there. Great input from guys that have spent decades perfecting their craft. If you think you can't afford this information as a budding board builder then I would challenge you to try to put down a tapeline for your first resin pinline (much less a back to back two color) and see how much sandpaper, tape and pigment it would take to get it right.
-Great stuff guys, been through the DVD a few times now. Pick up something new on each pass. Thanks for taking the mystery out of glassing its been a real help.
-Top notch. Keep it up.
-Got my copy of the Master Glasser on Friday and I've been through it once since then. Without a doubt if you are interested in making surfboards, both modern and classics you NEED this program. Roger Brucker shares his lifelong experience and tips handling the squeegee, sander and tape roll. He gives a very concise walk through on doing basic laminations (Silane and Volan), the elusive rail lap with variations on wetting laps, free lap, cut lap and all of those in between steps that other videos seem to "miss". You want to know about hotcoating? it's all here, he even repeats it for you in case you missed it the first time. Sanding is covered very well as is a detailed section on how to tape off for each step of the board building process. There is an incredible amount of information on this program including lamination, hotcoat, sanding, taping, retro techniques including swirls, splashes, resin pinlines, resin panels (with some very unique twists), inkline detailing, finbox installation, cloth inlays, glossing and polishing.
-Fluff free glassing instruction... PRICELESS!
-I am a newbee, just shaped my first blank had no where to turn. Thanks a lot my new home built board rides GREAT!!
