San Clemente surfboards & art by Paul Carter

Hello and thank you for following the journey and reading this blog journal.

Here is a 6’8 that is fun to ride in head high to double overheard surf.
This board has a few speed spots and with a little more overall width it paddles great and has plenty of speed through the sections.
I like to ride this on those overhead days at trestles.
I put a little more curve in the back half of the board to give a larger area for turns.

This a print a recent freehand painting depicting San Mateo and the native life and living.  Showing the waves of trestles from a time many years ago.
The frame was created by James out of the local bamboo. Thanks amigo. 
This board has the custom wedge stringers by Usblanks. 
There are a few reasons why I have been using this stringer set up since the mid 1990s.  To start with strength overall and the box fits in between the stringers, as opposed to cutting a stringer away.

This is a 9’6 that I’ve been riding for the last month or so.  This board is glassed with six on the bottom double six on the top. 18 1/4 nose 22 3/4 wide by 15 1/4 tail by 2.75 thick.   This is a single fin set up with the best of classic and performance for cruising or carving and nose riding..
