Dimensions: 5'8 x 19 x 2 1/8
[completed in September 2014]
The story: Owen is the person responsible for the little (™) next to my logo… Yes. Owen is the lawyer who trade-marked Mère-Made Surfboards (and apparels!). Big deal in Mère-Made history. As a side note he is also working of for the ASP. Another big deal as he got us VIP passes for the last Trestle Pro! I was stoked when he asked for his own board with little mermaid logo on it ;)
The shape: Owen and Vincent (my technical advisor/customer support) discussed a short board shape that would allows Owen to transition towards performance shortboards (thin, short, fast) for the local fast breaks. I used the V-epic template which is one of my most popular shape.
The artwork: except for the red blade, I had no particular instructions from Owen. I took the liberty to add some steel-like plates as I was super excited to try a new Montana can of metallic paint. The screws were painted manually with a home-made stamp and a toothpick! It sounds painful but I had a lot much fun doing it, actually.
