Next will be the fine sanding process then artwork and color.

I wanted to include a photo of the painting and parts of the drawing before Glassing. 

 This is directly on the foam blank.  

I would suggest practicing on paper or wood or canvas before attempting this on a surfboard.

It is a one shot deal, so it’s important to build your confidence before doing so.

Waves of change inside out


I am grateful and thankful for all the family and friends that have been there with positive energy and intentions.

This book came about on a journey that really began in January of 2018.

A step into the unknown mentally, spiritually, physically, and a soul that needed to truly learn and know thyself.

The book is a journey of drawings that helped me get back on track from the inside out.

In this first edition I did not tell the story of the life changing journey in writing but I did share many parts of the journey through the sketches and drawings with many positive words and intentions.

In the video below I am going through some coloring tips and sharing a time capsule for all generations to either get reminded or learn from the power of the mind.

Thanks for checking in on the journey from the video click subscribe and join the tribe๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

R/D Paul Carter surfboards

I began surfing at age 4.50 and started shaping in 1993 and painting in 2000.

Growing up riding just about every surfboard design available I have realized the importance of planing speed and letting the board and wave create the speed before going into a turn.

This is a speed bank turn, that does not take a lot of energy, when the board has the planing speed and correct rocker and rails to do so.

This board is a round pin and is great for smoother turns. 

 I am working on a new board which will be a squash tail for quicker turns.
