San Clemente surfboards & art Paul Carter

Hello here is the first of 4 boards available at bashams in San Clemente.
A 9 foot board for performance or classic cruising.
This is designed after my personal boards with the  options of single fin or 3 fin.
I like to use the 7 DD fin and all the way back in the box, along with the future 350 side fins gives this board a solid stable carving feel.
For the single fin I like to use the 9 or 9.5DD fin for more pivot turns and a little more nose riding stability.

Stop in to bashams in San Clemente and take a look it is 22.50 wide by 2.75 thick great for male or female.

 There will be another 9ft single and two 9’6 boards one single one 2+1 available in the next 1-2 weeks as well with resign tints. 

Thank you each for your positive support and intentions.

Classic longboards by San Clemente surfboards

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.
This is part of the painting process with the start of a abstract base painting.  
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. 
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,
