A new abstract painted surfboard in the works.
This is a 9’6 by 22.7/8 I recently shaped to replace another 9’6 I have been riding through the summer.
I took a break starting in May till around the end of august.
What I learned is the power of letting the brain and body process and reevaluate what’s important.
I was reminded of how much I was distracted on social media, and even more so the aspects of comparing one self to another and the real purpose to share.
I realize that I am grateful to have met and know most of the people on my social media platforms.
It’s very important to not compare one’s life without the need or insecurity of having to validate every aspect of it to anyone.
The video below is the new 96 that is in the Glassing stage at the moment, and I’m looking forward to riding it.
Why make new boards for myself?
Making new boards for myself keeps the creative, healthy fire stoked with more passion and purpose.
Below is a recently completed 9 foot board with a single fin set up.
I rode this board a couple of days ago for the first time, and I am really stoked and energized the way this board paddles turns glides and nose rides.
I am consistently fine-tuning, all of my surfboards from shortboards to mid range to long boards.I like the abstract painting on the Surfboards and on canvas it’s a unique one of a kind look that evolved going back to 1988 before I started shaping and creating a business of shaping and art.
I’m really stoked and excited about this board.
It’s so important to keep the creative fire stoked. Whatever that looks like for you.
