Might be hitting you up in a couple years... by the way, everything is sick, art is impressive, and the top portion of the mountain spines is ridic.
Awesome chit bro!!!
No clue on sanding a boat. But I never wet sanded the deck. Just kinda hit it briefly so there was grip to to primer it first then went straight to the paints. Also I didn't really think to hard about this paint process since I wasn't planning on putting any more miles on the board. After its done I'll seal it with some clear coat or modpodge and retire it to some wall. Now if I was painting a board I was still planning on riding I think I would have sanded it down differently and more cautiously...
Anyways thanx for the love
I wish I actually swallow tailed the board in the shape of a mountain silhouette and at the nose where the floating mountain is I may jig saw it to line up with the mountain profile... kinda like how LIB-Tech cut there Holy Bowly cat ear deck.
