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.
