Here ye here ye I present you the board entitled "Le Coq" shaped by my dear friend Rachel. Rachel asked me to help her on the painting portion of the surfboard making process, I of course jumped at the opportunity to use an air brush gun! We decided to go with a very stylized peacock with a vibrant palette (just in case you could not tell). It was a fun experience that resulted in an awesome board!
With many questionable excuses for leaving the house and stretching of truths on my part Nat' birthday gift is done! With everyone's traveling schedules I decided to give Nat the skateboard last night so the reveal could be enjoyed by all involved. I told Nat we had to pick up his gift because I special ordered it and I wanted him to get it tonight. Blind folded, with only a few odd looks from other cars, I drove an indirect route to Pravda (I didn't want to give our destination away). I carefully guided my blindfolded husband to the entrance of the store where Val and Rachel were standing with board in hand. After his pupils adjusted (it took a bit) he was a little perplexed as to why we were there! Then Val handed him his board and said Happy Birthday Man! I think overall he was pretty impressed and excited! Val did a great job on making the board and of course I pitched in with the design. It is a one of a kind custom board made by a friend and wife...not too many people can say that about their skateboards!
