Fun With Paint Pens



We've had a run of overcast weather and small surf, so my daughter's been out of the water and on land more than usual. She used some of that down time to fancy up one of her boards with paint pens.

Board technology has changed a great deal over the years. Surfboards started out in the early 1900s as not much more than crudely shaped logs. This board's core is the same material that styrofoam cups are made of, then glassed with epoxy resin, which makes it extremely light and maneuverable.

Beautifully done. I am afraid my surf boarding days are over - if they ever were.
