Newcastle Slimes Boardstore manager Mick Adam with Darren Shone’s custom 5’11”, 193/8″, 23/8″ Bushranger Roundtail

Newcastle Slimes Boardstore manager Mick Adam with Darren Shone’s custom 5’11”, 193/8″, 23/8″ Bushranger Roundtail model. You try to do your best with every board but sometimes some come out looking & feeling extra special. This was one of them. The Round Tail was a combination of a few of my tail templates & I liked the end result so much that I made a cardboard template of it. I do this a lot so I have a stash of cereal boxes on hand to use to make quick easy tail templates. It has a Single to Double Concave bottom, set up with 5 sets of FCS2 plugs for a Tri / Quad option. Glassed with a 4oz bottom & double 4oz deck. @shoney230 @pop_diddy @slimesboardstore @timdickson @kakek_slime @merewethersurfboardclub @fcs_surf @riklove72 @surfboardempire @sashstocker @lowenshaper #markrichardssurfboards #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger2 #mrbushranger2model #mrbushranger3 #mrbushranger3model #mrbushrangerroundtail #mrbushrangerroundtailmodel

Photos of the finished Color design that my son Nathan did on a 5’10” Bushranger

Photos of the finished Color design that my son Nathan did on a 5’10” Bushranger 2 model. The Color was done on the foam & there is a little paint bleed under the tape, especially on the black sections. I think we may have had the black paint mix a bit thin. To answer questions I have been asked,…. The way he did it ( see previous posts ) tends to be more prone to paint bleed than spraying with a gun. But I don’t think you can get a design to look like this by spraying the colors ? .. A 1/8″ wide black pin line would disguise the edge bleed. I usually tape the stringer on sprays as I like the look of the timber not covered in paint. The paint is water based & the tape used is the green 3 M / Scotch brand. @nathanrichards @mayhemb3_mattbiolos @markmonostewart2481 @christianchapmanartist @tapedoff @search4shin @willynicholls_artist @fiberglasshawaii @euroglass @adrian_robert_turner @quiksilver #markrichardssprays #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshapes #markrichardsshaping #mrbushranger #mrbushranger2 #mrbushranger2model

My son Nathan pulling the excess paint off the color design he did on a

My son Nathan pulling the excess paint off the color design he did on a “Bushranger 2” model. He started the design by pouring water based paint in lines onto the shaped blank using Black, Magenta & Yellow. The paint stains the foam where it is first poured & then the colors combine as they are spread. The paint can’t be too thick or too thin, there is a happy medium. @nathanrichards @mayhemb3_mattbiolos @slimesboardstore @markmonostewart2481 @willynicholls_artist @christianchapmanartist @search4shin @tapedoff @adrian_robert_turner @fiberglasshawaii @bernie_baker1 @rawsonsurfboard #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshapes #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #markrichardsshaping #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger2 #mrbushranger2model

My son Nathan starting to do a color design on a “Bushranger 2” model. He’s pouring water based paint in lines onto the shaped blank using Black, Magenta & Yellow. How you pour the 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. The next video I post tomorrow will show him spreading the paint with a Glassing squeegee. @nathanrichards @markmonostewart2481 @tapedoff @search4shin @christianchapmanartist @willynicholls_artist @adrian_robert_turner @fiberglasshawaii @quiksilver @mayhemb3_mattbiolos @artbyryder #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshapes #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #markrichardsshaping #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger #mrbushranger2 #mrbushranger2model

Vision from a walk around a “Bushranger 2″ model I shaped on Monday out of a Burford Blank. 5’10”, 193/4″ wide & 25/16″ thick. It will have a Thruster fin set up using FCS 2 Plugs. The Song playing in my room is “Around The Bend” by Pearl Jam from an Acoustic show they did at Benaroya Hall in Seattle. @burfordblanks @darrenburford66 @pearljam @nathanrichards @robertwilson12345 #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshapes #markrichardsshaping #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger #mrbushranger2 #mrbushranger2model

A “Bushranger 3” model l finished yesterday afternoon for my son Nathan

A “Bushranger 3″ model l finished yesterday afternoon for my son Nathan. It’s 5’10”, 20″ wide & 23/8″ thick. This is a new model which replaces the “Bushranger 2”. The plan shape & stock dimensions are similar with the main updates being, more tail rocker, deeper concaves, and a slightly fuller rail. The stock tail is a rounded square which is narrower & slightly rounder than the old tail. @nathanrichards #markrichardsshapes #markrichardsshaping #markrichardssurfboards #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger2 #mrbushranger2model #mrbushranger3 #mrbushranger3model @burfordblanks

A “Bushranger 2″ model, 6’0″, 20″ wide & 25/8” thick

A “Bushranger 2″ model, 6’0″, 20″ wide & 25/8” thick. This model is based on the “Bushranger 1″ & has 1/2” more nose width, a lower nose rocker & a less pronounced hip in the bump wing leading into the rounded square tail. I did the Fluro spray with water based paint, yellow sprayed on first then the green blushed over the top. The Pearl Jam tee is from last years Wrigley Field concert in Chicago & was a gift from my friend Rob Wilson who might just be a bigger Pearl Jam fan than me if that’s possible !!! @pearljamonline @robertwilson12345 @quiksilver @mikypicon @pierre_agnes #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger2 #mrbushranger2model #markrichardssurfboards

This is a “Bushranger” model with a Rounded Square Tail that I shaped recently

This is a “Bushranger” model with a Rounded Square Tail that I shaped recently. The corners of the tail on this board are a little rounder than the stock model tail. This was a combination of three different tail templates & I really liked how it looked so I took a cardboard template off it for future use . I used to make all my templates out of plywood but they are a nightmare to cut out & true up accurately with a handplane & sandpaper block. With the cardboard ones I cut them out with scissors and they are good to go. The only downside is the edges wear out if used a lot. #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshapes #markrichardsshaping #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger2 #mrbushranger2model #mrbushranger3 #mrbushranger3model
