Custom made surfboard & art Paul Carter

A short story with Brad basham 
This board goes back a many years with my friend Brad basham, he was getting rid of some damaged blanks This was a 7’6 blank that I reshape down to a 5’10 shortboard. 
Brad and I talked and we decided he would do the glassing and the abstract tint which came out great.
I would create the freehand art without forcing it.

I have known Brad since the mid 1980s and we surfed a lot of fun waves at trestles.  He was a flowing surfer and I enjoyed watching him connect the dots on some long walls up and down the different spots at trestles.

 I also enjoyed surfing with both he and his girlfriend Lynn who also surfed well. We all enjoyed many seasons and sessions together.

This is a time capsule of what was going at that time and all the thoughts and emotions as well.  

I am reminded of how important it is to stay present and enjoy the times together with friends and family. 

I thank each of you for the positive support and all the uplifting conversations and for following the creative journey.
