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 ๐Ÿ—

 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.

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 important๐Ÿ—

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.

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 nutrition๐Ÿ—

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.

Summer in Laguna Beach 8-2018

This has been a hot and humid last month with record highs with the air and water high hitting 79 to 80 degrees which was amazing to say the least.

This first image was walking down into one of the many beautifal coves in Laguna Beach with the white water lines painted on the water from the incoming waves.

The power of breathing tips by Paul Carter

The power of breathing is life changing on many levels and proper breathing is key.


I have been into many sports from childhood to adulthood and knowing the importants of breathing in the nose for more oxygen etc.  

Here is a short overview of what happens between nose breathing and mouth breathing in the nose  and the effects that happen in the bodies nervous system and chemistry.
I think it’s safe to say most people breathe in the mouth the majority of the day not realizing the strain  that happens over time and you add in exercising the body is on overdrive on adrenaline if not breathing properly in the nose consistently.

For more information on how to improve your health and nutrition and the quality of life I look forward to meeting you.

Focused through the clouds & art by Paul Carter

 I’m reminded on this cool morning on April 14, 2018 the importance  at staying focus through the clouds.

I am looking out the back windows of this van with the waves around 1 to 2 maybe 3 foot peaky conditions and people sitting waiting for their waves contemplating life and whatever’s going on in their mind.

Positive daily reminders by Paul Carter
Focused through the clouds
By Paul Carter
 I think to myself the importance of keeping life simple and not go down the rabbit hole and the rat race of buying stuff and all of the conditioning from growing up however that was for you.

We are living in a unique time of a age where every individual who has a smart phone now has the the option for their own media center and of course the library of endless information and knowledge which is amazing to say the least..https://instagram.com/p/BhT-xCanywJ/

 I feel that if more people would live in a van for six months to a year or two or three years or a tiny home they would get a healthier clearer perspective and respect for themselves and living a minimalist life with the simple necessities to thrive and enjoy a healthy quality lifestyle not simply survive.
Draw your surf dreams By Paul Carter
Surf dream drawing
By Paul Carter 
Life is a mental, nutritional, spiritual and physical daily choice and journey to choose the healthy rituals and the healthy nutrition to keep the body and the mind working correctly to enjoy a healthy quality lifestyle.

I spent 24 years hand shaping thousands of surfboards and in the last 2 to 3 years and I realized my true passion and purpose, which is to help more people find thier happiness but more importantly to find true health through optimum daily nutrition to enjoy and create the healthy life we each want to enjoy,

San Clemente Surfboards & Art Paul Carter

This surfboard was inspired by a Phil Edwards and a Mike Hynson surfboard that I saw in person and from old surf moves like endless Summer.

The fin was plain yellow until one day I was surfing and lost the board on the rocks and loosened the fin in the process.

I decide to paint the fin on both sides to give it some love and re glass it. 

 The board was shaped around 1994-95, I ordered this custom 3 redwood strnger blank from Clark foam at that time,

Original artwork by
Paul Carter

Little did I know that I would begin painting in 2000 and as you see from the paintings on both sides this is what I was inspired to create.

 As a child little did I know that the solid wooden doors with these unique key holes would become an inspiration later in life as an adult.

I did some drawings at least tried in grade school.

I didn’t really dive into art until 2000 that’s when I was inspired by two or three artists and picked up some paints and began my painting journey which led me to today and this drawing.

Getting grounded for health and creativity lifestyle Paul Carter #045

The power of getting grounded is real and I know now more than ever why being in the water has been such an empowering healing of releasing and renewing of the mind, spirit, body and soul for me and many other for years.
It is very important to have a solid nutritional foundation that is backed by clinical research studies that builds healthy cells through recovery and repair by getting into the bloodstream not go right through the body as the majority of isolated vitamins do, hence the amazing colors that go down the toilet.
