The story: Paul is a board collector and obviously a Mere-Made board collector since this one is the 4th in his quiver! (see previous boards: board #067, board #091, and board #092). The fun fact about this one is that Paul ordered it without knowing that it was already fully paid by one of his friend. Very cool friend!
The shape: The new board is actually an iteration of board#092 with a "compressed" version of the previous shape : i.e. shorter, wider, fuller, flatter for more versatility. However I kept the foiled rails which are Paul's favorite.
The artwork: Paul gave me two keywords for the artwork: "bright colors" and "stripes". He could not make me happier (he knows I am a huge fan of stripes ;)). I made diagonal bright red stripes with matching rails. We call it the "peppermint board" .
Testimonial: last time I surfed with Paul, he told me: "since I surf your boards I am such a better surfer. Thank you for shaping me boards which improve my surfing." I almost cried.
