'The Dreamer' Glides You Over The Moon 

The ‘Dreamer’ is the board to have fun. The more you have, the bigger the fun and the more you’ll catch. It doesn’t matter if the waves are mussy or small, with the Glider you’ll catch any of those waves, even bigger ones if they are good, noble waves.

This one is shaped looking for speed and trimming with a nice and easy paddling, and fast gliding. 

Good for nice, clean waves with a long wall where we can make good use of the parallel rail of this longboard.

The bottom of the surfboard is shaped with a belly in the first quarter follow by a simple concave in the second quarter that leads to a doble concave including the third quarter and the last quarter finished transforming into a light “V”.

The glass in the Glider ‘Dreamer” is 6oz bottom + 6oz +8oz volan on deck.

Garmendia adds an extra layer of Hot Coat (called Gloss Coat), before finishing the process in sanded or polish depending on the order. They are quite heavy longs but resistant and lasting.

The Ride of the 🦋

Jon Garmendia did it again. The second time around winner of The Longboard Spanish Championship and winner of the expression session of the best shared wave with Alex Knost at Vans Duct Tape Invitational. This young surfer keeps quite some secrets under his belt that we are going to unraveled, starting by saying that he is not only a shaper, and a very good one at that, but much more indeed. 

30is hours to finish a surfboard 100% hand shaped that demands care, attention to detail and solely two pair of hands that do the whole work from start to finish. Starting with the special selection of stringers, shaping, glassing, sanding … And yes, only a pair of hands: Jon Garmendia’s. The man, the brand, and the wings behind the butterfly.

You could think about what kind of relation could a butterfly and a surfboard have, and the answer has a name: Jon Garmendia.

This surfer from Zarautz, a little town in the Basque Country (Spain), is also a surfboard shaper, glasser and sander, that has just won for the second time around The Longboard Spanish Championship;  winner in A Frouxeira de Valdoviño beach in A Coruña and in Salinas, Asturias riding one of his own longboard designs and creations.  He was also the invited to take part in the expression session of The Duct Tape Invitational organized by Joel Tudor in Zarautz among 38 surfers and actually won it alongside Ale Knost for the best shared wave.

At he MexiLogFest (MXLF21), one of the musts in the longboard festivals arena, he got in the Top 16. Another victory for sure.

Not only that, he is a father of a beautiful baby girl and works part-time at the Spanish leader in furniture fittings manufacturing company as well. His hands are full right now with work at the company in the mornings and his passions: his family and, as he says, seeking happiness by shaping his own surfboards, longboards among them, and riding them.

So, afternoons would be the time when Jon puts the hat of Garmendia Surfboards and shapes his midlengths, twins, longs ..., while steals time during weekend mornings or dawns to surf himself, try his designs and keep improving shapes for those boards that fill, not only his demands, but also the ones that more and more want to ride one Garmendia Surfboard.

 

| Curiosity Lead to Longboards and More

Being passionate about singlefins, twinfins and longboards, he started to feel interested about classic shapes after falling in love with the lines they drew. That was it. Even though it started as a hobby, an endless curiosity about this particular classical shape made him be on a mission: to shape the longboard he was longing for him that could not find anywhere.
