Experience The Elev8 Silver Surfer Glass Open Experience
4 Stage Experience

This event is to showcase the Silver Surfer vehicle and why it is the industry's most versatile machine while being as unique as you.  Taking into consideration how busy you are, the event is over 6 months.  The first Stage is over 2 months and should not take more than 4-10 hours to do (depending on prep). 

We NEED your help!  Not only is Silver Surfer America's top desktop vaporizer, E-Banger and wax melt diffuse, but it is built from the ground up, just like our industry has been.  In 2004 Steve started the Silver Surfer and had to teach himself how to blow glass to get the parts made.  Times were good, the world was not marketing hard in the business.   During legalization the big boys (pax & greenlane) began to powerhouse with marketing, soon puffco and others came in hard with amazing marketing.

Fast forward to now and the Silver Surfer is used by people like Willie Nelson and Woody Haralson, yet you may not have heard of it.  It is still the only vape built in the USA that can be fully customized with glass by American glassblowers.  Steve has built this company with no help from the outside and he is looking to use his time on the torch and the relationships he has built to have a fun, yet rewarding adventure to market the Silver Surfer with your help.  

We need your help and would love for you to be a part of this adventure! 

We will have a booth at Glass Vegas to show off all the kits.  Please join us and be a part of this experience!

You must be prepared to separate from your glass for up to 6 months if you want to keep it.  We ask this as this is a big project and we want to gather all the parts and offer them in one big nice kit for stage 4 to show off the full beauty of the Silver Surfer.  Because of this, we have come up with some neat ways to make this work.  We are so excited to get to work with our peers, so let's go!!

REFER A BLOWER AND EARN 1/2 lb. in Elev8 Premier Butter Color. This is good for the first 20 blowers that are referred.  Like the Silver Surfer was built by word of mouth, this experience is also built with word of mouth from you.

The blower you refer must complete all 4 stages (does not have to do the artwork)

You will receive 1/2 of Butter Color no later than 2 months after Stage 4 is completed.  This just helps us with production.



Since 2004 our vehicles have ELEV8ED the industry grass roots.  Now we are calling on you to help us.

You can make a little extra cash too

You can take this opportunity to have you visit your favorite headshop and see what the parts look like in person.  If the shop does not have the Surfer, we have a problem.  We need your help, so if this is the case and there is not a Silver Surfer at the shop, let us know by just emailing sam@elev8distribution.com and let us know to give them a call.  If we can get one in there, we will give you a 1 time 15% commission fee on the items sold for the first order placed from your shop. 

  Learn About Making More Money

How the buy-out for the glassworks. 
We have 3 options so you can get paid for your work.  

  1. The fast buy-out @ Distributor cost with option to also earn 20% of the retail sales if it sells retail.

    1. We will buy the glass (Stage 1 (wand, knob & carb cap), Stage 2 (Aroma Top), and Stage 3 Rig) from you for 25% under wholesale once we receive it. This is so we can pay our wholesale staff as well as all the other overhead we know of.  We would also pay you 20% of the retail sales price if the item sells retail on our end as a thank you so much for the opportunity.  
  2. Send us the glass and get paid when it sells.  Get 80% of the wholesale price (we pay our sales reps 20% commission) or get 80% of the retail sales price!

    • We take the pictures, put it on the site and we can offer you 20% under wholesale if our wholesale team makes the sale.
    • If the item sells retail then we will pay you 80% of the retail sales price. If you sell the glass wholesale or retail, hey you keep the money and we will ship it to your customer on our dime for the opportunity to work together.  
    • You do not have to sell us the glass at all.  When this is over we will ship it all back to you, or ship it where it needs to go if it so
  3. Just keep the glass for you or trade.   With this project, we need all the glass sent to us for images and judging.  We also will be brining this experience to Glass Vegas to show it all off and hopefully get a chance to meet you all in person!! 

    • Or, we can leave it on the site and you can opt to receive 80%of the wholesale price if our team sells it in the future, or you can receive 80%** of the retail price if we sell it on the site.  
    • All glass that is posted on the Elev8 Glass Gallery for sale is subject to any sales that the site may offer.  This can cut into the profits of the glass.  You need to know this also helps move the glass faster.  We do not offer no more than a 10% discount on wholesale orders, and you may also be subject to that discount if the sales team feels the need a discount to move the glass.   They make more if you make more, so they are on your team.

We will have a special guest judge Bandhu Dunham to have this judged in person.  It is the only way to truly see glass.  Once this is over, we will send the glass to you and remove it from the sale from our site.

Once we get this glass on the site we will put it up for both retail and wholesale sales.  Once the item sells, it will also not ship out to the customer until the end of Stage 4.  They understand this.  The good news is you will be paid once we are paid (give us up to two weeks for the bookkeeper).  

We understand this is all built on some serious trust.  We have fully taken into considering this idea of you sending the glass to us, then us taking pictures and holding for up to 6 months.  We get it, this is different and taking a lot of trust on your end, into us.  We feel we have earned the trust of the industry as we have been here 17 years working with many of the oldest and trusted head shops in the industry.   If you have been to any of the Champs shows in the last 15 years, you have seen us there!  We guarantee any research you do will lead you to know we are a trusted partner in the industry and we only hope this to open many more doors for us all in the future.

July 15- Aug 31
You have plenty of time!!


  • Must be Delivered to Elev8 Distribution for knob completion and wand completion no later than Sept. 5.  We need time to get it all produced and photographed.  Voting is from Set.10 to Sept. 15 

  • Make a Wand, Knob, and Carb Cap for the Silver Surfer to show off the ability of the Silver Surfer that it can do dry herbs and concentrates

This is the temperature control for the Surfer.  The back can be pushed in with a metal dowel, or you can make a hollow part.  This needs to be able to accept the plastic part so the knob and be easily put on and off the Silver Surfer.




We highly recommend that the wand is completed by one of our top Elev8 Premier blowers.  We know you can do it, but if the part is not perfect we have issues.  We would appreciate the wand to be left just like in the picture with the blow tube attached and the end closed.  We will add the spherical flavor disc joint and open the back end to the perfect size.





This is to show off the versatility of the Silver Surfer.  This carb cap is like most carb caps, but it must have some dimensions proper or it will not fit the Dab Dish.silver-surfer-expericence-carb-cap-build.jpg


  • You will have to send us all this glass.  We will add the front to the wand, we will weld in the part for the knob and we will take pictures of it on the Standard Silver Surfer Experience WRS.

  • Elev8 Glass Gallery will host the glass on their site.  They will have it for sale, and it can be purchased, but it will not be shipped to the buyer until after Stage 4 is completed.  If the blower sells the glass, again it can not be shipped until after stage four is finalized.  So blower, sell the glass, but let the person know they can not get it until after stage 4

  • If for some reason the glass breaks while we are finishing up the wand we can not be held responsible.   All your glass will be handled as if it were ours, if not better, I mean we want this to desperately work.  If for some reason something unfortunate happens we will work with you to get it back to the original.   We do not expect anything to happen as the wand build is super easy and we also do it under a Bunsen burner, so we feel very very good about this.  

  • If your glass is broken during shipping we will send it back to you our we will work with you to fix it.  We can not be held reliable for broken glass, but we will do everything in our power to make it right if something does happen.

  • All glass needs to be shipped to ELEV8 SSV CONTEST 1450 Aviation Way, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80916

 VOTING Jan 15-20

  • Create a work of art for the Silver Surfer to match your Silver Surfer kit.  If you are not good at art, no worries, this is where you get to lean on someone you know, or someone you admire.  If you are a hermit like Steve, you may need some help, and we got you covered.  We have an in-house artist that can help. 
  • If you want your art to resell again and again as a Silver or Super Surfer Wave Rider option, Elev8 Glass Gallery will pay you $30 every time it sells, up to 150 total units.  Then we will stop selling that art after the 150 limit.
    • When you submit this art it does become the property of Elev8 Distribution in order to print the art, publicize and market the art, as well as keep it for future publicity.  There will be 1 unit made at the discretion of Elev8 Distribution to be sold as part of the glass kit at the end of Stage 4. 
  • If you win or loose you can still be a part of the Elev8 Silver Surfer team.  Once we have your art we can put it up for sale if you like.
  • Note that there will be an option to print 2 surfers with your art on them when you submit the art to us.  The first one may or may not be printed.  This #1 is for Steve.  He keeps all #1s.  The #2 will be the unit to be sold with the kit at the end of Stage 4.  If you choose to let Elev8 recreate your art, it may be printed up to 150 total times.  #1 for Steve, #2 for Stage 4, and the rest of the 148 will be options to be sold on the Elev8 Glass Gallery website both retail and wholesale.  You will be compensated $30 for each of the remaining 148 units as they sell.   Elev8 Distribution will pay this out at the end of each quarter.
  • The Aroma Top needs to ship to ELEV8 SSV CONTEST 1450 Aviation Way, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80916

  • If you had an artist help you win, well kick ass!  You will need to let us know who the artist is so we can pay them the prize money

VOTING is Jan. 21-26

  • This when we show off the full kits to be judged.  WOW, this was a long fun challenge and we are so stoked everyone joined in.  We did this so that while someone might not so much be able to say make a rig maybe as well as someone else, but they have an amazing idea and can deliver on the FULL kit.  As a full set, it just has to be looked at as a new judgement.  

  • This will be voted on by a group of judges.  1 point from Steve and the Elev8 Distribution warehouse staff, 1 point from Bandhu Dunham to be announced, 1 POINT from the world. You are in control of how you get the votes for your items by the public.  We for sure post and promote.   You also need to help promote your work and get them votes.  

    • We are having a 3 point system based on each item getting a vote to keep this as fair as possible.  Over the years we have seen ways we feel would make judging better, and we feel this is it.
  • Prizes will be paid out to winners no later than April 1. 2022
