Vitamin Sea model
The story: Last Christmas I was in charge of making a surprise gift from Sean to his lovely girlfriend Marcie: her first surfboard ever was a custom Mere-Made (click here for the full story)! This time, it was Christophe who ordered a birthday gift for his wife Dawn. Because she surfs already, he couldn't make it a real surprise and she picked the shape and the artwork.
The shape: Dawn wanted an everyday board, meaning something she could ride in any conditions. She picked the Vitamin Sea model previously created for Tracy. I love shaping those boards with generous volumes. They feel like a lot fun in the shaping bay already!
The artwork: Dawn sent me a picture of a board with an artwork she liked. It had flames on it but she wanted different colors. I thought it would be a piece of cake but it was actually a nightmare to spray paint two touching colors on curvy motifs like flames. I spent hours on curvy masking on foam! This board is a perfect example of a "25-75er": 25% of my labor time was spent on the shaping for 75% on the painting!
