A repost from dslmag.com regarding our favorite french “glasser & sander”, The Lucky Bastard.
LUCKY BASTARDS is a little crew of surfboards glassing, created by two french glasser: Tristan Mausse and Paul Lefevre. After working for many different surfboards companies all around the world, The label called LUCKY BASTARDS began in 2006 with the aim to make the best quality, and to give a new image to the surfboards artwork, inspired by the punk-hardcore movement, the tattoo movement and of course the american car culture. The Lucky Bastards only work with tinted resin, and are specialised in the polish finish.
After have worked for many companies as: UWL WORKSHOP, RHINO LAMINATING, GLASS-IT, PANDA SURFBOARDS, WILDE/GNECH FACTORY, DMS SURFBOARDS, WEST COAST GLASSING, MICHAEL CUNDITH, CLASSIC MALIBU, BLEND GLASSING, PSM/LORENTZ FACTORY, GATO HEROI FACTORY, EUROGLASS, REVOLUCION SURFBOARDS, CATALYST, PUKAS… and many more in FRANCE, AUSTRALIA, CALIFORNIA, CANADA, SPAIN
They are now glassing every summer in spain at the Pukas factory, and moving every winter to australia or California specially for the « special series » as we developped with LOST SURFBOARDS.
