Collaboration Minvielle Surfboards and Chacal Glass perf longboard

Long time no see, here is a collaboration for tony. Shaped by Minvielle Surfboards, glassed at the shaggyshack. No need to talk more about Alain Minvielle, he is a legend, one of the big kahunas here in Pays Basque. Big man was a bit worry about who was going to glass his shape and I understand it. When you put your name on it, you wanna make sure somebody you don't know won't mess with it!  So we hit the road one morning for the factory, 200 km down south. The meeting was more than I was expected, thanks for the warm welcome and the time you spent with us.
So here it is : 9'0 perf Longboard 22 1/2 x 2 3/4.

Grange-Cossou artist designer

I've first met him on August this year when he came to me for a glassing project. I'd already done something similar few years ago for Keep a breast. Result was good but it was a total hassle.
This time I would have 2 weeks for the glass job on a sculpture of the future Musee Fradin de la mer et de la marine of Bordeaux. Well, bring it on mate, the shaggyshack always does his best to take care of your business.
Here we go, glassing the deck of the thing and glassing the thing itself. So many hours hand sanding. Bruno did his part too and found himself very passionate for the sanding. Special thanks to Kim Kamikaze and Polymir for their advices, you guys are ripping.
The thing had been seen at La Biennale de L'architecture de Bordeaux for the Agora event. 
Well it look good on the picture but you gotta see the thing for real, it's MASSIVE !!!
Thanks to the talent of a very good artist…. and a good man.

5'10 Fish by Loic Dauphin

Nico fresh fish !!! deal was : do me something retro and I like when the rails are a bit darker than the rest of the board. So there it is, clean translucent turquoise top that become purple on the cherry red laps from the bottom. Double resin pinline but no leash loop this time. I prefer plugs for fish so you can go further back in the swallow. Just tell me if you're regular or goofy. It's the most beautiful board in Carcans I was said. Good, that's what I wanna hear….

Come by the shaggyshack and let chacal taking care of the business.

Jay G prod, flashback on a long time ago project.

Was in me old shack, and it was a lot of fun building this little project. It feels good when you know the guy rips so he will fully appreciate a shape. He told me the board is still his number one, 3 or 4 years after riding it and was still pristine beside average tiny dings. No disrespect but you won't probably say that coming from famous brand production surfboards. But this is not the topic!

Good job fellas! come by the shop and bring more of your blanks and ideas and lemme pimp it for ya.
