This Burnt Tattie is 5’11 x 21 x 2 ½ is an adaptation of the Fat Fish.
It was the stand out board at all the shows – passersby seemed drawn to it as it was a nice fresh look. The board gets this aesthetic by literally setting fire to the blank before glassing with Entropy Resin!!! I can see this being a popular effect for future boards.
John Gassor chose to have a fully custom board. Through the whole build stage we discussed wood choice, shape and the fine details like nose and tail blocks. Here it is, the Gassor Original.
John was real stoked with the finished product and we even made a matching hand plane from the left over timber. The board is made from Paulownia and black walnut. The shape is a fun gun so it works well in waist to chest but comes alive when over head plus. It’s a 2 + 1 setup with glassed in CNC milled fins using the offcuts laminated together from the deck and bottom.
It’s a great feeling passing on a nice new board to a happy customer.
