San Clemente Surfboards Art Review by Paul Carter

This is a fun all around board for nose riding and carving or cruising through the sections.   This board is a 7'11 and works great from 7 to 8fit range.  I build custom hand shaped surfboards for your dreams.

 I enjoy riding a 9 foot board but I wanted to change it up with a combination of a the best of a short and longboard something that I could still carve in the pocket and also hang five or 10 through the sections.   

I use the 325 and 350 future side bites depending on the size of waves,  with a 8 to 8.50-DD center fin and all the way back in the box which is set at 6.5,  the side boxes on this board are set at 18 to give it the single fin feel with the carving option when you want it.

The wedge stringer was an inspiration from a Renny Yater Surfboard I saw in the early 90s. 
I began incorporating the wedge stringer from 1995 to 2004 in many hand shaped surfboards.

So it came full circle this last year and I'm stoked to have the wedge stringer back again.  Join my instagram tribe from the link below.

Dirt free uses 95% less water and very low up keep with 5-7 hours of sunlight on a deck or roof top for your home or business. 

Takes 2.5ft of space to grow 20-36 plants for fresh salads and smoothies daily.

I use no herbicides or pesticides on the plants because it's dirt free.

This system is able to grow indoors with light system as an option. 
One of the many crops and photos.

We hold the keys painting overview by Paul Carter #009

We hold the keys to life, painting overview by Paul Carter

I have been surfing since I was four years old.  I am always learning from the ocean and the power of nature is how I stay balanced from the inside out.

My inspiration from nature has been the majority of the paintings from the past into the future. 

Life is mental spiritual then physical and the keys represent the reminders of the daily choices we all have to make and we each hold the keys to unlock the doors the health, happiness and yes wealth which comes from doing what one truly enjoys doing.

Drawing a keyhole surf art time lapse Paul Carter

Looking through the keyhole, a kids dream.

A true meaning of a quick draw of a keyhole surf dream.  I grew up in a house built in the late 1920s. 
As young boy I would look through these key holes to the outside to my world my dreams from the inside out.  
I did some drawings in grade school and a few in high school but I didn't think much of it, until the year 2000 when I decided to start painting and my art journey began and continues to grow the more I create.  
This is a time capsule videos of drawings and paintings, shaping everything in between on creativity.
These videos will be up on my YouTube channel so join the tribe through the link in my bio. 
Thanks everyone your positive support it feeds each of one us.

learn How to fine sand a surfboard shaping tips PaulCarter 2/3

Fine sanding a new hand shaped surfboard.

Some simple tips from a rough shape to a fine sanded completed surfboard. 

I use 60 grit first with a flat block for the blending and smoothing out the lines on on the bottom and the deck.  Next I will use the 1 inch foam block with 60 grit to blend the deck to the rails.  Last I use 80 grit for the fine sanding.

These are standard sized sand paper with a balsa block cut to your hand size.  You can use any type of wood, I like a lighter wood such as balsa. 

I have 3 sanding blocks, one with flat no foam and one with half inch and one with 1inch foam, I mainly use the flat and 1inch foam.
Above is a nice example of a fine sanded surfboard. 

Thanks for checking out my blog journal,   let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Keep creating and enjoy the process.
