Custom Especial

When Rodrigo ordered his 8' v.Bowls, I asked the time-old question, "What are you thinking on colors?" to which he effortlessly replied, "Of course, its all in your power...whatever you feel like."

I admit I took a bit of a risk on this one, but when it was all put together as one surfy-craft, I fell in love.

After spending some back home in Washington a few months ago I couldn't keep myself from using the four most basic Northwest-Native-American-art colors on a board, and Rodrigo said the magic words..

The translucent white pigment deck over the dark abstract rails looks so insane in person. You can just barely see the abstract details through it's milky complexion (zoom in on the detail shot of the deck above).

I'm pretty proud of this one, it could have gone horribly wrong and went so far the opposite way that Rodrigo was shaking when he picked it up :)

Congratulations! This is a special board indeed.


It's a great job!
