Glass Tech, Inc. was founded by Dave Endress in 1976. The company currently manufactures approximately 800-1,000 boards per year, and employs five people, including Endress himself. "Itís my way of participating in the surfing world," he says. "I have a love of the craftsmanship of making boards, creating designs that are successful for the waves we ride, tailoring a board to specific guys."
Customers can buy one of Endressí boards off the rack at 17th Street Surf Shop, under the Pride label, or place an order for a custom board at 17th Street. For Endress, customs are where itís at. "Everyone wants something a little different than the next guy," he says. "Buying stock isnít conducive to the complete surfing experience."
