[completed in April 2016]
The story: while my husband was in Nicaragua, having the time of his life with his friends, I thought it would be a good time to shape him a new board. Just in case he would not want to come back home from his surf paradise :))))
The shape: he just snapped in half a board that Axel Lorentz shaped for him when he came to California. He mentioned he really liked it. I thought I would just try to replicate it (I still had the broken pieces to figure out the shape!)
The artwork: the good think about surprise board is that I can't ask for the owner's opinion. Therefore I can just follow my own ideas, still thinking about the recipient. I went for discrete dark blue/black stripes which end-up making a V pattern... for Vincent, of course!
The testimonial: This is Vincent's go-to board when the swell is above 6 foot.
