San Clemente Surfboards Surfer girl

A new custom board for C.S.  She is one of the next generations of a stoked surfer.
It’s great to work with all ages and really get the boards dialed in for the individual and what they are looking to improve on for their surfing.

An early run down the road on a new journey to a place I have been going to since I started walking.

I try to see a sunrise and a sunset as often as possible and this was a beauty on many levels and the sun rays were awesome to see shining through the clouds.

A new custom 10ft handshaped for Bob on his Mexico trips.  This is set up with a 2+1 fin boxes and a nice clean blue design tint in the top and bottom.  I always enjoy drawing a custom surf scene and positive reminders to keep one on track.

San Clemente Surfboards & Art by Paul Carter

 I was inspired to paint this 7.5 inch fin for my new 8 foot board coming up in the next couple weeks.

This is a two-sided painting,  I call this (24 hour dream) showing the sun and the moon and a surfers dream set up and perspective🎨

This is clear coated with three coats of Liquitex varnish, so it’s sealed and ready to go in the ocean.
Side note always rinse off your board in fresh water when available🗝

This board is a 7’6 with 3 future fins set up.  I made this specifically for sano and trestles waves and it did not dissapoint me a couple days ago with a solid overheard swell👣👍🏽

The bottom Has a concave nose into flat into a a reverse double concave Vee off the tail.

It’s fast and loose when needed and with a 16.50 nose into 22 width and a 14.50 tail, with a nice thumb tail give this board a nice flowing outline for all types of waves.

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.
