These boards are inspired by the classic boards shapes that I rode in the 80s and the stripe style graphics of 1960s surfboards.
I ordered uncut blank boards from Skatepaige and got to work. I designed two basic shapes each with a pointed nose variation. Once I had designs I liked, I made templates out of some card stock and traced the designs on to the blanks.
The boards were cut out on a bandsaw and the edges were finished with a combination of a disc sander, drum sander and hand sanding.
The designs were taped off with automotive pinstriping tape and painted with spray paint. Five coats of water-based polyurethane brings out the natural beauty of the unpainted wood.
