The story: Owen is my lawyer. He enabled the Trade-Mark of Mère-Made Surfboards (the name first and more recently the logo). He is the one who will go after anyone who dares having a mermaid sitting on a V :)
The shape: Owen had a Mère-Made performance shortboard in the past (click here). This time he was looking for a more relax summer-type shape that Owen spotted in a local surfshop. We went "shopping" together and I took the dimensions/shape he liked of a board he liked at the store. It was a very unusual shape in between an egg and a shortboard (Happy Shovel from Rusty). I had never seen something like this before and for this reason it was very interesting to shape.
The artwork: Owen's choice of artwork almost triggered a diplomatic incident as he picked my husband's artwork signature: the Zipper. But because Owen is a lawyer, he got the final word! :) In order to make something unique about his board, he requested a two-color zipper.
