Dream draw create and live the lifestyle by Paul Carter

As a surfer since age 5 it’s been a journey of growth on many levels through the single digits of youth into the double digits of the teen years to learn by doing.

The path into manhood and continuing to break through the many layers of unhealthy conditioning is a daily focus of becoming a healthy human with confidence not ego or fear.

Growing forward with faith and taking the steps with courage from the inside out one day one wave at a time is key.

I am inspired to share my journey and the experiences I have learned and continue to learn with those that resonate with them and are open to listen and learn.   

It is very empowering to share the positive selfless energy with all ages for the future generations.


 In one foot to  
 10 foot waves,  there is a freedom in facing the fears and to continue to grow through them and have fun by being totally present in the moment with positive perceptions.

I like to draw the surfboards to get a idea and a feel for what I am after before going into the shaping room to create them.

In the first drawing of surfboards the outlines are each unique and vary in dimensions starting from nose to the center down to the tail and even the width of the actual ends of the tails themselves.

The nose outlines can be changed from a round nose into a semi pointed nose and everything in between made custom for you the customer.   

Round pin tails are smooth for all around surfing,  the pin tails are for hollower waves to really stay connected to the wave.  

As you get into the thumb tails and squash tails  and into square tails, each one will release quicker out of the turns.

This is a simple overview of the many types of board designs for your surfing style.

I began writing and drawing on my personal boards in the late 80s and it has evolved even more since  started hand shaping 1993. 

The sketch below is what I create for new commissions of art and ideas.  

These custom surfboards are for surfing or to hang in a home or a business to keep the fire stoked in ones life.

The boards are 100% organic in the creative process and hand shaped and hand painted freehand no tracing or computer. 

                                    Some people call me old school and I call it New school.

One must stay connected to the roots of truly Hand made and using ones left and right brain and stay in the dirt to live a healthy life of longevity.

Thank you for taking the time and reading my creative journey to the live a healthy
lifestyle by choice not chance

                                              Learning by doing is the key to be truly free.

Drawing to painting trestles on a fin by Paul Carter-059 #paulcarterart

A custom painted surfboard with art on both side showing the infamous trestles and positive reminders.

I am reminded as I write this post the empowering importance of not comparing ones art, life, surfing anything and everything to anyone else's life.

Keep creating with what you enjoy and continue to learn by doing daily.

Never give up or give in to the conditioned lies that are the distractions that hold all of us back from living and creating our dreams.

In the video I go through parts of the painting process and more.

Let go of the lies of ego and be aware of the thoughts you are having while reading and watching the video and looking at the photos and living your own life.

Why you ask,  with awareness you will see if you truly are focused on the positives or the negatives by being present in the moment and enjoying the moment.

Drawing for a new surfboard fin

Painting a surfboard fin

I was recently commissioned by a long time friend C.M, we grew up surfing one of the magical surf breaks of Trestles.  

 He ask for a design around the infamous break called church,  hence the name church which was a stones throw away from the water back in a previous time capsule of Camp Pendleton.

This a perspective either from the bridge or the hill top.  There is a large palm tree on the north side of the bridge that was there in the early 1980s, along with many more just south.

I like to create a sketch of an idea before painting and this is the actual size of the fin and drawing which is a 9.5 inch fin.

When I start the painting I will adjust certain parts of the original drawing which is part of being totally present in the creative process.

Surf dream painting inspired in part by Thomas Kinkadet


I received a card in the past few months and I looked at it for a few minutes and I appreciated the art.

Like many artist from centuries before me, I was inspired by the art and put it aside and went on my way with the journey of life.  

Born in laguna beach California I have been a Surfer-Shaper-Artist all my life each evolving into the next and the next.

As you see from black and white to color, I have been inspired with the painting and drawing of clouds and the panoramic scene is a surfers dream or at least my own dream.

The journey continues to grow from the inside out the more I learn by doing.

Positive drawing and life reminders by Paul Carter

                  The journey continues from the inside out.  

Creating original art by being present is a test and a exercise for me to stay in the moment and create with an open mind.

The mind and body are very powerful and to learn by doing is the journey I have been on most of life.  
Be present-drawing by Paul Carter 4-2019

I have been on a journey to learn about the conscious mind and the subconscious mind and what separates them and how does one break through the many layers of conditioning that is pasted on from generation to generation both positive and negative without even realizing it.

I have broken through many layers of co-dependencies from mental to physical and spiritual and the journey continues.

Keep in mind codependency comes in many forms from caffeine to sugar to drugs to alcohol to sex to sugar to relationships to sports to exercising to work, you get the idea.

Its not about being perfect or ego or money or stuff the house the cars etc.   

It's about learning by doing and truly getting to know thyself from the inside out, and facing the conditioned lies of fear.

I have learned from surfing to running to riding bikes both road and mountain bikes and many more in between.

I am not sharing this info not to boost my ego or to make myself feel better.   I am sharing what I have learned and continue to learn with positive intentions to inspire or spark something in you.

Most people don't breathe properly let alone know what chemicals actually get activated when nose and mouth breathing and that is one of the many tools I have learned and continue to learn.

So you see at the beginning of this art drawing journey in bold letters I started with -Be Present- and if I and we are not present in the moment then we are in the past in survival mode which is stress which is conditioning.

Having healthy boundaries for your health and well  being is very important for many reasons and being aware of the energy of others and intentions is something that I am very attuned to and have come trust it and not dismiss it or not belive it anymore because it is real and true.

So with that being said pace yourself and remember life is not a sprint it is a marathon. 

To be continued and thank you for checking out the latest.
