The story: board#009, board#32, board#50 (broken), board#73 and board#108 is how many Mere-Made boards Mark owns ! Board#142 is just the 6th board I make for Mark (and not the last). I think Mark is a Mere-Made surfboard collector :)
The shape: the first board I shaped for Mark was a classic keel fish (board#009). A couple of years later, after seeing a shape video describing a more "performance" keel fish shape, including a concave (not usual on a keel fish) and narrower swallow tail, I locked myself in the shaping room to make Mark's new board. It was also gratifying to see the improvement I made in time of execution and precisions on those two fish.
The artwork: Mark asked for a resin tint which was executed by my glasser, Dewi from Tiger glassing! The color came out a bit stronger than expected but it is really hard to match someone's color wish... But, I truly like the "lime" vibe on that fish (and so does Mark).
