A subtle surfboard 😉

Smashed nose and wet foam / stringer.

Also this whole board has been spray painted and covered in flowers.4.1.13 029

Notice I rebuilt the nose with safety in mind,

pointed nosed surfboards are dangerous.

I added some POSCA PEN artwork


Enjoy Michelle 🙂

The FCUK shop decor board now is ready for a surf.

How many holes to repair…holes re cut and plugged with foam from a off cut blank,

Pink tinted resin for the repairs and the FCS style fin plugs.

New leash plug install.

Flexible nylon surfboard fins used for safety as this board is destined to be a little girls first surfboard.

I added some extra detail to the fins to make them themed to this board,

much nicer than the raw black they were originally.

A fun little project came my way recently by a good friend Seb the Photographer,

its a FCUK branded surfboard used as a shop decoration piece..its full of holes and

dings..this board is intended to be a gift for a very lucky young lady.

click to view the holes!

Pink underneath blue on top…My daughter has already spotted it (sorry its not for you).

So its multiple ding repairs – leash plug and a thruster tri fin installation.

To think this would of been landfill?

How often do you clean off your wax?

Underneath your front foot placement on your surfboard is the most likely place for a crease to develop from a heavy Air landing, Off The lip manoeuvres or commonly a good old fashioned wipeout.

further investigation revealed…

a cracked surfboard stringer.

The stringer needed to be reinforced and the deck glassed.

With surfboards costing premium prices today its best to look after “your chosen ocean vehicle of fun.”
