Learning to sail through life

It's not all about enjoying the smooth sailing through life in relationships it's all about how two people work together through the small storms that life creates to makes us better people. We meet people to learn from or remind us of what is important and what is not important. Ive been told we meet our emotional equals which I believe there is some truth to that statement. I also realize that two people can only go so far together and it's part of the journey to move on from people and remain friends with some and other sometimes never see again. So don't be sad or disapointed when that day comes and it's time to move on because it's in meeting all the different people in each of our lives is what shapes our soul and spirit to break all the negative conditioned patterns from our past. So enjoy each day to the fullest and work together with your partner and work through your own conditioning and life will only get better.

Letting go of the past

Letting go of the past is easeir said then done on many levels. The mental and the emotional levels are very strong indeed. It's a great place t be when one realizes the more one lets go the more good seems to grow. It might be a family issue or a work issue or a relationship issue they are all attachments and it's up to each of us to let those attachment go. When one sees that everything is part of the lessons needed to become a better person then and only then one begins to open up to knew opportunities with work,family and relationships. So be thankful and grateful for every experience we all have it is only happening to shape our lives for a healthier life today. Enjoy today it's all we have.

Be a energy maker not a energy taker

With that being said yes we all create energy every second of each day. The key is what type of energy are we creating? I believe the key is creating a positive energy maker. If it's not positive then you become a negative energy taker. There are warriors victims and villains and the victims and villains are energy takers. So today be a warrior and keep your guard up for the energy takers they are everywhere. The great thing is when one realizes we attract what we think and feel then all we have to do is focus on all the good positive people places and things in our lives. So enjoy today and the only thing we can change is today. Keep life simple like the native people did for thousands of years.

food for thought

When you let go of the past negative conditioned patterns in current situation thats when life truely becomes enjoyable every day. Also when you realize your repeating the same patterns in a current relationship or business venture that is when things begin to change. When we change the way we look at things the things we look at change. So with that being said hope everyone is enjoying today and getting outdoors one time or another and breath deep and let go and let life flow.

custom shaped and painted surfboard coming to life

This is going into the layers of the mountains and the island with a layout and line up of the waves. Will have 2 to 3 more photos with the final painted soon. Stay tuned.

Spring cleaning is very important

Time to clean house mentally,spiritually and physically. If you have to much clutter in your house that is simply collecting dust it's time to donate or discard.  This is very important all they way down to saving negative texts or emails or letters etc.  If ones does not delete or discard negative text,emails,or things that are from the past, then one will be attached to them and will be carrying the extra weight mentally,spiritually and physically through life. Letting go is when life flows.The past is nothing more than the trail one leaves behind what drive are lives today is the energy one generates in each present thought in each moment.

San Clemente Art & Surfboards by Paul Carter

Just a reminder to everyone that we manufacture our own surfboards which are shaped and made in the USA. Our prices are much lower the most stores because we manufacture our own surfboards. The only other store that is in the same ball park is Becker's. So if your wandering and wondering around looking for a board for you and your ability stop in and see what we have in stock or Paul will talk to you personally about what your after. We build functional surfboards for all levels of surfing and surfers.  Surfboards made by a surfer who surfs on everything.

Yan and Pauls tropical dream

this is a combination painting with my good friend Yan he painted the outside of the eye area with cement trawls only.  We both started painted at the same time which was 2001 and this is the first collaboration we have done together.  Also the first collaboration i have done with any artist period.  

Save the planet save gas

This goes out to all the people that like to hurry up and stop at the next light or stop sign. Save the planet save gas,slow down and you will do just that. If you take the time to stop into San Clemente Surfboards & Art and you are a fellow shaper surfer or shop owner leave your ego at the door and come in and introduce yourself and be thankful you get to live in this country let alone in orange county. Just for the record I personaly refer many  people to many business in and out of town. So if you want to save the planet slow down talk less and drive slower and save the planet. When ego is lost limit is lost. So be thankful for all you have and remember what we think and feel and say becomes real so next time you start to say something negative about another think twice and breath and let go of ego and be happy. I thank each and every past and present customer i appreciate the support. See you at the gallery or in the water.

The Surfboard is what makes the Surfshop

So what  makes the surf clothing industry become a billion dollar business. Of course marketing or is it conditioning. I believe the surfboard always comes first because the surfboard creates the surfing life of the surfer today. The one thing that separates any so called surf shop is the surfboard. Go into 90 to 95% of any surf shop around the world what is the one thing most of them have in common? The one thing most of them have in common is they all carry 2 to 5 of all the same name brand surfboards and clothing companies. The shops that manufacture there own name brand surfboards and clothing are the real surf shops which are becoming a lost art and a dying breed.  If your only looking for a good deal that's one thing but isn't the quality and the function of the surfboard even more important? If your looking for functional surfboards that work and more importantly shaped by a surfer who surfs everything let alone rides everything then look no further and stop in and check a surfboard gallery that is carrying on the tradition of the past into the present surfers of today. Thank you for your support and thank you for choosing surfboards shaped by a surfer.

San Clemente Surfboards & Art by Paul Carter

I'm excited to say the first shaping and painting video is coming soon. The first one will be of me shaping a 6'3 twin fish style surfboard with a cool looking paint splash as well. The board is 6'3 21 by 2.50 center. This is a board after a 6ft I have been riding at trestles the last 3 to 4 months. I wanted a little bit more plaining speed and paddling for the long rides at trestles. So stay tuned I'm hoping to have it on a blogg in the next week or two with a surfing segment on the board as well. Thank you all again for your support and good energy. Stop in anytime to talk boards.

Qualty custom shaped surfboards by Paul Carter

So tell me people what is one of the most important points in purchasing a new surfboard? Most people would say price but most people that are only looking at a good deal don't necessarily care or are concerned about who shapes the board or where it comes from.
So with that being said from my own experience most of the surfboards that i enjoyed came from shapers that surfed.  I get people that walk into San Clemente Surfboards & Art and are only looking for a good deal and I asked them whats more important getting a surfboard that works for you or just getting a surfboard at a good price that is not suited for your ability? My surfboards are made in the USA and are HAND MADE not from a mold or from a country that pops them out for profit period.
I have been shaping Surfboards since 1993 and stopped counting at 6200 surfboards over 8 years ago.
I grew up riding everything from heavy classic long and short boards all the way into the rebirth of all the modern twin fins,three fins,four fins, five fins and single fin. I'm consistently researching and surfing many different surfboard designs shapes and fins.
 My surfboards are made for each individual and there ability and where they like to surf. My surfboards are shaped from many many years of surfing experience and hundreds of thousands of hours in the water riding everything from 5'9 all the way up to 9 to 10ft plus surfboards.
I build custom hand shaped surfboards for each and every individual for ALL ages and any size surfboards. So if you are only looking for a good deal then please don't waste my time and your time.
If you you want a great quality hand shaped surfboard at a very reasonable price then please come in and will be more than happy to take the time to build your custom surfboard.
I don't know to many shops you can walk into and talk directly to the shaper. So if you ready and willing to get a functional surfboard made for your weight and ability and the waves you like to surf then come into SCS and check out what we have and order a custom surfboard that will work for YOU.
Dare to be different and have the courage to ride a surfboard that is shaped by a surfer, I ride everything from short to long and everything in between so anyone that's says i only shape longboards are misinformed and don't know my backround.  Enjoy the ride of life one wave at a time and remember you can't surf if you cant catch the wave.
