Custom San Clemente surfboards & art by Paul Carter

San Clemente Surfboards custom made with original art both hand shaped and hand painted.

A time capsule from the past to the present of the thousands of surfboards I have handshaped since 1993 and the 100s of Surfboards & paintings since 2000.

I am writing this blog journal to capture my journey, because it is very easy to forget where we have come from,  and the courage it took and takes on this journey to learn by doing the work and to embrace the creative arts that I and we enjoy 🗝

 When I look at this painting I can only imagine what it was like back then before the harbor, with the water men like Ron Drummond, Lauren Harrison, Pete Peterson, Mickey Munoz, Phil Edwards, Hobie Alter, and cast of many more, surfing sailing and living off the land for the select few who knew how.

This board was created for the SoCal woodie club along with an original canvas painting of the classic Dana Cove. 

It was for raising money through the raffles at one of the gatherings of the club with 100s of classic cars.

How to draw waves & surf art by Paul Carter

Simple tips on how to draw waves and the way one learns is by doing the consistent activity with what you want to learn.

Born in Laguna Beach, California, I was raised in the small communities of SoCal and the surfing lifestyle.

My surfing journey began at age 4, I learned on a long board that Was to big and heavy to carry.
I was pushed into 6-12 inch waves and riding straight in to the beach.

Through the journey of exposures to surfing and surfboards and surf shops and the many beaches and characters on them, little did I know that many years later I would want to learn how the shape surfboards and build a business from it. 

The same is true for wanting to learn how to paint and draw.  I did some basic drawing as a child periodically, you know those day dreaming times  during my grade school years and during my high school years as well.

In high school I only took one drawing class with a great teacher named Rick Delanty who is and was and inspiration with fitness and art, and a professional paid artist.

San Clemente Surfboards & art by Paul Carter

The journey continues after one of the longest breaks from shaping surfboards since 1993.

It was a year break and a much needed one on a few levels to release and renew from the inside out.

The mind is so powerful and I am always learning daily.  The fire is stoked within me and I am exited mentally, spiritually and physically on new levels with a new perspective and positive perceptions.


When one does the work from the inside out to get real clear on the direction and why we do what we do?.  In my case shaping and painting becomes an exciting journey within the process of creating each artistic avenue.

The board you see below is one of kind starting with a custom Clark foam blank and within the waves  if you look closely there are curved redwood stringers.

This is a 9’5 a great glider and nose rider that turns like a Cadillac.

A time capsule on a warm day sitting north of the San Clemente pier looking south.

Summer time in full effect with many colorful umbrellas up and down the beach.

Dana Point photo & Surf abstract Artist Paul Carter

In this photo I am holding one of 6 paintings I completed in a one month time frame in January 2017.
It was a time of change mentally, spiritually, nutritionally, and physically and literally working through and letting go of the many layers of conditioning we all have in one form or another.

Learning that I am not an island and the importance of having healthy daily habits amd having trusting friends to listen and share and learn from one another, to lift each other up is very important🗝

I am  consistently and continually learning through my daily healthy habits and the rituals to not only maintain my health and well-being and lifestyle also to grow each day by taking the steps by learning by doing the work.

In this photo of the beautifal Dana Point strands beach it was a overcast cloudy morning.

I was inspired to add a strong looking wave to the photo, giving it a unique look of the power of waves.

I created the wave using a digital application using my finger to draw and paint with the colors available.  As you see I left a little extra blue to show the difference between the colors of nature and the digital colors.

I have been traveling up and down the coast this summer meeting many quality new friends and spreading the word with how to properly breathe and what happens between nose and mouth breathing and the power of having a daily vine ripened whole foods foundation for recovery-repair and prevention.

In the image above is a 4 x 9 feet and one of the largest paintings I have hand painted to date.

I have many photos with top athletes with this mural from Mickey Munoz one of the crew that paved the way with surfing in California and the islands.  Kelly Slater 11 time world champion to world record breath hold free diver Stig Severisen and many more all awesome inspiring humans.

I have learned by doing the work consistently with surfing, shaping and painting and the importance health and fitness and nutrition🗝

I have grown through  many phases of vitamins and juicing and I have learned through trial and error  pros and cons of each and the time and money of each one.

I have learned to simplify how to get a solid daily vine ripened Whole Foods foundation that bridges  all the nutritional gaps of what I don’t eat every day. 

I have healed through serious injuries with nutrition alone, and I have learned the hard way and the optimum way to recover and repair the body and the prevention for the marathon of life.

What I am sharing with you I am learning and continue to learn daily through experience on many levels and hours of research and lectures and I am very confident because everything I am sharing is back by clinical research and results.

Would you like to learn what I have learned and take you health and energy to the next level? Simply email cboards,com@gmail.com or for phone evaluation call 949-370-5807.

I look forward to sharing what I have learned and what I know will help you with recovery-repair and prevention.
