Coloring book San Clemente Surfer Shaper Artist Paul Carter

Waves of change coloring book for inner health, which brings peace by staying totally present in the creative process.

I am excited and grateful and thankful for this first edition book.

This was an idea going back to 2006 that came to life in the year of 2019.

Waves of change is a inner metaphor of my journey as a Surfer Shaper Artist going back to childhood.

The front and back covers are time capsules of my painting journey.

I date just about every piece of art I create to look back on where I was at that time.

I wanted to create a classic comic style book with black and white images to be colored.

I decided for this first book to have some space for journaling and any thoughts one would like to capture.

 I am consistently learning by doing and this book is no different.

I really like the simplicity and convenience of print on demand and the beauty of being shipped anywhere in the world,  directly to your home or business.

Surfboards San Clemente Shaper Paul Carter

This is a custom ordered blank by usblanks.   A solid basswood wedge stringer which gives strength and a one of kind look.
I Hand shaped this board for waist to shoulder high waves to cruise and carve in the pocket when available.
I went with a little light glass on this board using 4/4 top and 4 bottom.  I like to knee paddle for a few reasons so I went with a nice looking knee patch.

 I used a 7’4 blank to best match the rocker and thickness I was after.  The blank is by usblanks out of Bashams in San Clemente,Ca.  I literally cut the blank in half.

This shot is how much of the thickness I had to cut down using an electric planer, from 3.1/8 down to 1.50 to 1.5/8.

Riding the waves of creativity by Paul Carter

 A great morning surf with good friend the others day on my birthday.  
Had some great waves of research and development on this hand shaped surfboard with many speed spots.

Growing up riding long and short boards and everything in between,  I have learned that each board has many speed spots.   In this photo is one of those speed spots with balance and gravity and martial arts.

This is another time capsule of the testing and training with surfing.
Dropping in behind the peak and trimming down into the Power pocket of the wave while on the nose is a unique experience of energy.   
With a variety of board shapes and lengths, widths and tails and rails and rockers etc.  Surfing is limitless and shaping them is unlimited and only limited by ones perception.
