Phone Vision I took of the rail spray I did on my son Kyle’s 5’8″

Phone Vision I took of the rail spray I did on my son Kyle’s 5’8″ long Lone Ranger Rounded Square model. 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. It’s not getting a pin line so it was essential the Color edges were clean. @kylerichards1 @_mkbn_ @dlovepaint @dane.robb.art @christianchapmanartist @markmonostewart2481 @willynicholls_artist @adrian_robert_turner @tapedoff @search4shin @markrichardssurfboardsapparel @fiberglasshawaii #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshaping #markrichardsshapes #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel

Unveiling the striped spray I did in my driveway on Tuesday

Unveiling the striped spray I did in my driveway on Tuesday. I was stoked how it came out. Clean lines with no paint bleed. It’s a fairly basic spray but it was way more complicated to spray compared to the simple rail sprays I normally do. The colors were quick to apply but the tape up & Papering of each section took me ages. The paint was water based & it was refusing to dry. The day was sunny & warm but it had rained the day before so I guess there was a lot of moisture in the air. @fiberglasshawaii @quiksilver @mikereilly1 @benny_big @fuzzy66 @samueltgriffiths @sammygosling @yeahbranchy @limowall @anothery @mikypicon @euroglass @empireave @surfboardempire @boardridersericeira @boardriderstorquay @boardriderscoolangatta @boardriderscapbreton @_mkbn_ @dlovepaint @dane.robb.art @christianchapmanartist @markmonostewart2481 @tapedoff @search4shin @willynicholls_artist @adrian_robert_turner @markrichardssurfboardsapparel #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshaping #markrichardsshapes #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #twinfinsforever #mrsupertwin #mrsupertwinmodel #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel #mrlonerangersupertwin #mrlonerangersupertwinmodel #quiksilver #quiksilverwaterman

Tape up & progress photos of a spray I set out & started taping up

Tape up & progress photos of a spray I set out & started taping up in my shaping room about 5 am this morning. I sprayed the colors outdoors in my driveway today. There are 4 different Color stripes so there was quite a bit of tape / paper setting up between the colors. As usually applying the Color was fast but the tape ups were slow. @markrichardssurfboardsapparel @surfboardempire @surfview @markmonostewart2481 @christianchapmanartist @dlovepaint @_mkbn_ @dane.robb.art @willynicholls_artist @adrian_robert_turner @tapedoff @search4shin #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshaping #markrichardsshapes #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrtwinfin #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #twinfinsforever #mrsupertwin #mrsupertwinmodel #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel #mrlonerangersupertwin #mrlonerangersupertwinmkdel

My son Kyle with his snapped “Lone Ranger” model which was about 1 year old

My son Kyle with his snapped “Lone Ranger” model which was about 1 year old.. It was his favourite board & unfortunately he can’t claim it happened on a late take off or pulling into a barrel. He snapped it paddling out getting caught by a close out on a shallow sand bank. The surf was terrible too, cold day, 4-5′ onshore & closing out. Hardly anyone in the water. When I think back on all the boards I have broken it has either been while paddling out & getting caught inside. Or falling on the first wave.of a set then wearing a few on the head & your leg rope stretches out & your body acts like a sea anchor. @kylerichards1 @graceirichards @nathanrichards @markrichardssurfboardsapparel #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel

Photos of a Spray I did in my driveway this morning which is usually kinda challenging. I don’t have a dedicated spray bay anymore, only my shaping rom. Prior to choosing a day to spray I have to keep an eye on the weather reports hoping for a day with really light wind early in the morning. I lay cardboard all over the driveway for the overspray then back up against the garage door & spray away from it. There are also some photos of the tape up & my guide lines on the rail for where the solid part of the spray starts to fade out. @fiberglasshawaii @surfboardempire @markrichardssurfboardsapparel @markmonostewart2481 @tapedoff @search4shin @dane.robb.art @christianchapmanartist @dlovepaint @_mkbn_ @willynicholls_artist @adrian_robert_turner #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrloneranger #mrlonerangermodel #mrbushrangerroundedsquare #mrbushrangerroundedsquaremodel
