The owner of PSM Glassing closed the business in June as he wanted to retire

The owner of PSM Glassing closed the business in June as he wanted to retire after a lifetime of running the Glassing factory. I loved working with this crew & was sorry to see it end. PSM had glassed & sprayed my boards for many years. These Retro Twin Fins were sold by Slimes Boardstore in Newcastle recently & were some of the last ones glassed by Mick, sprayed by Mono, Darren setting up fins, Bruno sanding, Rob on pin lines, Peter glossing & polishing. From Left to Right, 1980 Retro – Vee Bottom, 1982 Concave Retro – Single to Double Concave bottom, 1978 Retro – Vee bottom. I’ve got lots of photos of boards with great sprays by Mono & incredible Glassing craftsmanship by the PSM team that I haven’t posted. Over the next month I’m going to try find them to post. @markmonostewart2481 @micktheglasser @peter_grover #psmglassing #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #twinfinsrule #twinfinsforever #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #mr1980retrotwinfin #mr1980retrotwinfinmodel #mr1978retrotwinfin #mr1978retrotwinfinmodel #mr1982concaveretrotwinfin #mr1982concaveretromodel

A couple of Retro Twin Fin models that Mono did paint pour squeegee designs on

A couple of Retro Twin Fin models that Mono did paint pour squeegee designs on. They always look good but he has especially gone off on these two. I can’t decide which one looks better, maybe the one with the pink center stripe ??? @markmonostewart2481 #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #mr1980retrotwinfin #mr1980retrotwinfinmodel #mr1982concaveretrotwinfin #mr1982concaveretromodel #twinfinsrule #twinfinsforever #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #psmglassing

Andrew from Dripping Wet surf shop in Manly’s custom 1982 Concave Retro Twin Fin model

Andrew from Dripping Wet surf shop in Manly’s custom 1982 Concave Retro Twin Fin model. It’s 5’8″ long, 193/4″ wide & 25/8″ thick. Mono did the soray & has just finished the Black pinline. Total nightmare of a tape up job joining the tape in all the corners & points of the Color design. Glassed by Mick, Darren on fin set up & sanded by Bruno & Peter. Gloss & Polish still to come … @drippingwetsurfshop @brettcurotta @markmonostewart2481 #psmglassing #markrichardssurfboards #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #mr1982concaveretrotwinfin #mr1982concaveretromodel #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinsforever #twinfinfevercatchit #drippingwetmanly

A size range of 1982 Concave Retro Twin Fin models at Dripping Wet Surf Shop

A size range of 1982 Concave Retro Twin Fin models at Dripping Wet Surf Shop in Manly. This model shares the same outline plan shape from the 1980 Retro Pro model. Instead of the original traditional Vee bottom it has been modernised with a Single to Double Concave Botton. Rails & thickness distribution are still totally Retro & true to the era. Glassed by the team PSM & sprayed by Mono recreating a design I sprayed on one of my personal boards in the mid 1980’s. @drippingwetsurfshop @markmonostewart2481 #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #markrichardssurfboards #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #mr1982concaveretromodel #mr1982concaveretrotwinfin #twinfinsrule #twinfinsforever #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit

Brett Curotta from Dripping Wet surf shop in Manly sent me this photo of he & his mates doing a Manly Beach version of the Beatles- Abbey Road album cover. From Left to Right, Matt “Flemo” Fleming, Brett Curotta, Jeshayle Sing & Scott Clutton. They are all carrying MR 1982 Concave Retro Twin Fin Models.

This three panel stripe design is repeating a Color design I came up with for

This three panel stripe design is repeating a Color design I came up with for a spray I did on one of my personal Twin Fins back in the 80’s. These five boards are all stock Retro Twins arriving at Dripping Wet surf shop In Manly, Sydney today. They were ordered by Brett Curotta who is always challenging me to keep the retros fresh by continually changing the theme of the sprays on each batch of boards they get. So I came up with 5 Color variations on my original & drew them up with Color pencils for Mono. (see second & third photo of one of the order forms). As usual Mono totally went off spraying these boards. So did the rest of the team at PSM Glassing. Mick, Darren, Bruno, Rob, Peter & Paul are seriously talented. @drippingwetsurfshop @markmonostewart2481 #psmglassing #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssurfboards #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #mr1982concaveretrotwinfin #mr1982concaveretromodel #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #twinfinsforever
