|Best pill to get stoked|

The story: After enjoying his first Mère-Made board for few months (click here to see it), Paul was ready to get his Mère-Made #2... and #3 too !! To beat the wait from the waiting list, he asked for two boards back-to-back! Smart ;)
The shape: Paul is a board collector and with that comes the need of trying atypical shapes. For this board Paul requested my version of the Pill by Garry Hanel. This very particular shape combines a huge squash tail with a wide nose. This is the summer board, totally adapted for local breaks. The bottom was shaped with a nose belly coupled with a single concave, slighlty channeled towards the 5 fin setup. The rails were specifically foiled to respond to Paul's preference. Shaping atypical boards is always fun!
The artwork: I don't remember who came up with the idea of the pill artwork. Maybe it just happened because Paul wanted a red and blue board. This artwork was naturally meant to be.
The testimonial:... was overwhelming but I lost it when I switched phone :(
But I personally can tell Paul likes his board just because I see him riding it very often !
