A 3 shot sequence @boskophoto took of me surfing in Newcastle recently

A 3 shot sequence @boskophoto took of me surfing in Newcastle recently. I’m riding a Bushranger 3 Rounded Square model, stock dimensions, 6’0″ long, 20″ wide, 21/2″ thick, 32.4 Litres. ( I weigh 85 kg.) Thruster Fin set up with three sets of FCS 2 Plugs. I have the FCS 2 Reactor fins in it. You can do your head in with the variety of fins available. I like this Thruster Fin set as it’s very close to @kellyslater original FCS KS 2.1 set. My theory is if it was good enough for Kelly then it’s good enough for me. Contemporary rocker & rails with a Single to Double Concave bottom. I Shaped it in Nick Maz’s room at the Surfboard Empire / Lost Australia shaping rooms on the Goldy last year. Burford Blank computer cut on Fitzy’s APS Shape 3D machine. Glassed all In 4oz with a fine sanded finish at Tony Cohen’s TC Glasshouse also on the Goldy. @quiksilver @mikypicon @anothery @limowall @sammygosling @samueltgriffiths @yeahbranchy @cidoubleyou @mikereilly1 @nickmaz3 @tonyc7 @fcs_surf @riklove72 @mikedurante @burfordblanks @darrenburford66 @surfboardempire @lostaustralia @fitzycooly @mayhemsurfboards_mattbiolos @benny_big #markrichardssurfboards #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger3 #mrbushranger3model #mrbushrangerroundedsquare #mrbushrangerroundedsquaremodel

A late arvo surf with @julian_wilson on Saturday

A late arvo surf with @julian_wilson on Saturday . @boskophoto took the photo & was trying to get us to move closer together but we were social distancing. I didn’t get to watch Julian ride a wave front on but I watched a few from behind & there were chunks of ocean being displaced !!! Earlier in the year at the @surfingaus Olympic camp just prior to the start of the tour Julian was in impressive form. He surfed a few mock heats in absolute shit surf & totally ripped. My board is a 6’0″ Bushranger 3 Rounded Square Thruster model. @bededurbo @quiksilver @samueltgriffiths @cidoubleyou @mikereilly1 @mynewcastle @wsl @surfboardempire #markrichardssurfboards #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger3 #mrbushranger3model #mrbushrangerroundedsquare #mrbushrangerroundedsquaremodel

Photos of two boards I sprayed prior to pulling off the tape & paper. I taped them up in my shaping room early on Saturday morning then bought them home & sprayed them back yard open air style in my driveway. The Green rail spray is on a 7’0″ Bushranger Round Pin Gun. The Yellow & Magenta rail spray is on a 5’8″ Bushranger 3 Rounded Square model. The paint is water based. @quiksilver @fiberglasshawaii @markmonostewart2481 @_mkbn_ @dlovepaint @dane.robb.art @willynicholls_artist @christianchapmanartist @adrian_robert_turner @search4shin @tapedoff #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardssprays #markrichardscolordesigns #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger3 #mrbushranger3model #mrbushrangerroundedsquare #mrbushrangerroundedsquaremodel #mrbushrangerroundpingun #mrbushrangerroundpingunmodel #mrbushrangerroundpin #mrbushrangerroundpinmodel

The finished Fluro Green & Yellow Rail spray that I did on my son Nathan’s

The finished Fluro Green & Yellow Rail spray that I did on my son Nathan’s Bushranger 3 Swallow Tail step up model. It’s 6’2″ long, I sprayed it recently open air style in my driveway. The paint is water based. The edges come out really clean with no Color bleed under the tape. You never know until you pull the tape if any sections of the Color have bled. @nathanrichards @fiberglasshawaii @markmonostewart2481 @christianchapmanartist @tapedoff @search4shin @adrian_robert_turner @dlovepaint @_mkbn_ @dane.robb.art @willynicholls_artist @surfboardempire #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger3 #mrbushranger3model #mrbushrangerswallowtail #mrbushrangerswallowtailmodel #mrbushranger3swallowtail #mrbushrangerswallowtailstepup #mrbushrangerswallowtailstepupmodel
