The photo below has a little more layers of color. I went with painting the panels off of a board I got when I was 16 years old. The board was a Hanson/hustler late 60s model with straight red pigment panels rails.
Thank you each for following the journey your positive support keeps the creative fire stoked.
The first photo is from this last December on a cool clear morning 2022 no one around for a couple hours.
This board is a 10’2 I Handshaped in 1999. This board was inspired from a Phil Edwards and a Mike Hynson boards.
A half inch redwood center stringer with 2 one quarter inch side stringers. A fun board that I have been riding for the last 3 months for some R/D for the new version below.
This is one of two classic boards I recently shaped. I decided to change up the stringers to a 1/4 inch center redwood with two 1/8 side stringers all redwood.
The completed painting has much more detail and depth. I will be sharing photos soon the board needs a gloss and polish, which the original board from 1999 has.
I have been enjoying the glide and the heavier board which weighs 25 1/2 pounds. The new board will be in the 19 to 21 pound range.
The original board from 1999 turns well and nose rides great with plenty of speed spots to choose from.
I am looking forward to my new board. Stay tuned I will be posting on Instagram/pcboards and YouTube/paulcarterart soon,
Thanks again keep the creative fire stoked and remember do not compare your life to anyones amd No validation required,
