Looks so good already. Once finished it's going to be stunning.

Thanks for sharing.

RED HOT!




It was quite amazing.
While they were painting the board I got to confirm colours were what I wanted, adjust the fade, change the spec. on how the rails were going to be treated, comment on the paintwork at the join, see what was happening like I was there.
All thanks to Dylan and his crew.


That is what left such an impression on me after my stay at the Sunova factory (literally lived IN the factory for a month)
The dedication to quality by entire the crew.... from office to production line!

Many of the workers surf, skate and live the surfing life....

Sunova's are truly "Built in Paradise" by folks who love what they do and where they live.

Board has been clear coated, but more urgent jobs pushed past.

Blimey, that looks bright.

Will you wax it or Pad it?

Still weighing up the options.
1. Wax. Pretty much ruled this out.
2. Full pad - 3 colours, orange on the orange, yellow on the yellow, white on the white and ignore the fade.
3. Pad like early PSH boards had - cut up bits of pad about an inch square with gaps between - same colours but could mix at the fade transitions and let the fade show through. This strikes me as a lot of work.
4. Hexatraction - I have bought enough to do the board, but worried it will get uncomfortable standing very quickly.
5. Small pad and hexatraction - orange pad in paddle standing area, hexatraction front and back of it. This one is probably winning at the moment.

Or just hang it on the wall and admire it over a nice glass of cold soda water...

At the rate I'm damaging things at the moment it won't be a wall hanger for long.
