Arlin with board#121
Dimensions: 7'8 x 21 1/2 x 2 7/8
[completed in January 2016]
The story: I met Arlin on Facebook when she ordered her first Mere-Made surfboard in 2015 (board#083). Arlin is a mermaid who lives with her son in Texas where she makes sure to fully live their salted dreams. Arlin drove 2 full days (from Austin) to pick-up her board im California...She is a one of a kind! A very inspiring woman. I was so excited to make her another stoke vehicle!
The shape: after the noserider, Arlin was ready for a shorter, more manoeuvrable board. I recommended the Vim model which I tested personally. I kept some volume for floatability. For speed I added a single which ends-up with a slight Vee and a couple of channels.
The artwork: Arlin was very determined on the colors and design. I just followed her wishes!
|we love you Arlin!|
