I LOVE shaping surfboards and I'm kinda obsessed with this craft. Even though I am about to shape my 191th board I'm still considering myself as a novice but I hope to become a master one day... This blog is a virtual portfolio and a diary of my journey in the shaping world. Feel free to leave comments or contact me directly at valerie@meremadesurfboards.com.

board#135: funboard for Gayle

Dimensions: 8'2 x 21 3/4 x 2 7/8
[completed in July 2016]

The story: I know Gayle since our sons went to daycare together at the age of 2 months! Since then we have been randomly crossing paths in our busy lives but always grateful to see each other and to catch up in the line-up. Except that now she rides one of my board :)

The shape: "something fun to ride in any conditions", a fun shape it is! Volume for the paddle-ability and a bit of rocker to permit some rides on steeper waves. 

The artwork: Gayle requested some irradiating rays. Since I had done sideways, I went for a tail origin point for a change.
