Throw a little sugar into their Christmas bowls…
Earlier today, BeachGrit reported that Global Glassings in Oceanside, California, had disappeared in flames. Acetone will do that. Half-a-mill in damage and a bunch of glassers, who let’s face ain’t the best paid in the biz, suddenly out of work just before Christmas.
An employee trying to put out the blaze was burnt on his face but drove to the hospital on his own accord.
Global Glassing produces boards for Channel Islands, Slater Designs, Firewire, Chemistry, and a wide array of Southern Californian shapers. The destruction will have reverberations through the entire board building community.
Please donate as those who make our toxic toys are the backbone of the entire surfing experience. Their job is critical but they often don’t receive the praise or the pay they deserve. Those impacted are asking for $20,000 to purchase new tools and get back to work.
Please share and help these guys out.
Freak accident that put some really good people out of work and a place to shape. Lets get them back in the bay.
Info soon on how to help!
