My son Kyle’s new “Lone Ranger” Bat Tail ready to wax & surf

My son Kyle’s new “Lone Ranger” Bat Tail ready to wax & surf. Big decision on which Color leg rope. Green or Blue ??? Do you match the Color to the board or go opposite ?? @ocean_earth79 @kylerichards1 @slimesboardstore @pop_diddy @timdickson #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel #mrbonzerbatail #mrbonzerbattailmodel

Finished photos of the Color design Kyle did on his “Lone Ranger” Bonzer Bat Tail

Finished photos of the Color design Kyle did on his “Lone Ranger” Bonzer Bat Tail . It’s 5’7″ long, 20″ wide & 23/8″ thick. In the last few photos the tape is still on the rail & you get some awesome Color blends as the paint floods off the foam onto the tape & paper. The paints he used were water based acrylic, sample pots from a hardware store & some Fluro pink from an art supply store. @kylerichards1 @pop_diddy @willynicholls_artist @markmonostewart2481 @christianchapmanartist @tapedoff @search4shin @adrian_robert_turner @slimesboardstore @surfboardempire @bernie_baker1 #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel #mrbonzerbatail #mrbonzerbattailmodel

My son Kyle using a rubber Glassing squeegee to spread & remove the excess paint

My son Kyle using a rubber Glassing squeegee to spread & remove the excess paint from the design on his board. Yesterday’s post showed him pouring lines of water based acrylic paint directly onto the foam. Even if you use the same colors & do a similar pour no two of these designs ever come out the same. The paints he used were sample pots from a hardware store & some Fluro pink from an art supply store. @kylerichards1 #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel #mrbonzerbatail #mrbonzerbattailmodel

My son Kyle staring his Color design by pouring water based paint in lines onto

My son Kyle staring his Color design by pouring water based paint in lines onto the shaped blank using Blue, Pink, White & Black. The paint stains the foam where it is first poured & then the colors combine as they are squegeed off. The pattern of lines dictates how it will come out as the paint soaks into the foam cells. The paint can’t be too thick or too thin, there is a happy medium. @kylerichards1 @markrichardssurfboardsapparel #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel #mrbonzerbatail #mrbonzerbattailmodel

This is a board I shaped for my son Kyle from a Lone Ranger model

This is a board I shaped for my son Kyle from a Lone Ranger model. It’s 5’7″ long, 20″ wide & 23/8″ thick. The stock Rounded Square tail was replaced with a double bump wing Bat Tail. The computer cut had a single to Double Concave bottom & I cut a reasonably deep Bonzer into it. It’s a redo of a board I made for him 2 years ago which became his favourite. Fin set up will be Thruster. Shaped from a Burford Blank. @kylerichards1 @burfordblanks @darrenburford66 @bonzer_front #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshapes #markrichardsshaping #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel #mrbonzerbatail #mrbonzerbattailmodel

Not much room left in my Toyota Kluger for the trip home to Newcastle from

Not much room left in my Toyota Kluger for the trip home to Newcastle from the Surfing Australia junior training camp on the NSW North Coast. Nine finished boards & 3 Computer Cut Burford Blanks. Of the nine boards in the car there are Super Twins, Flying Fish, Lone Ranger Bonzer Bat Tails, Bushrangers & the first couple of an updated Puffer Fish model that I have been working on. I think I’ve broken my own record for the most boards I have ever squeezed into this car & still have rear view vision. I actually think I could have got 2 more in the back. The trip home had some detours, up to Lost Australia on the Goldy & also via Nick Pope Glassing. @popesurfboardglassing @burtonautomotive @kimpindimar @lostaustralia @burfordblanks @darrenburford66 @surfboardempire #markrichardssurfboards #mrtwinfin #mrsupertwin #mrsupertwinmodel #mrflyingfish #mrflyingfishmodel #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger3model #mrbushranger3 #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #twinfinsforever #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel #mrbonzerbatail #mrbonzerbattailmodel #mrpufferfish #mrpufferfishmodel #mrpuffertwinfin #mrpuffertwinfinmodel #mrpuffertwinfin2+1 #mrpuffertwinfinmodel2+1 #burtontoyota
