i believe that’s known as the very vibrant KELLY GREEN! (considered by some uptight individuals to be garish) awesome! hey JP some friends and i have succumb to the surf blog craze…http://rudderman.blogspot.com/
with the weather being so poo lately it’s hard to get decent water shots to post… in time
It’s actually called “St. Pierre Clipboard Green”.
I should know, it’s my board 🙂
Green boards ride the best. True story.
Why was this airbrushed instead of resin tint?
I’m trying to learn more about the use of each method.
jp explain airbrush vs pigment for me too
resin tint cost more kimosabe
when cost is no object some get airbrush why is it ever better. Question to Jp not the 34 year old boogie boarder that got really into surfing lately.
is it ever better? got really into surfing lately? Stay in high school you kooky teenager.
i like opaque colors for uv protection – i keep my boards a long time. it seems like airbrush fades easier than opaque glassing as well. i know some attribute more weight to opaque glass jobs though.
there are so many ways to sort this out depending on personal prefferences or priorities – just like there are so many ways to ride a wave. consider the factors from the sourses you give credence then just do it your way and be happy! if you want maybe try it different another time and keep the local surfing labor shaping squgeeingand polishing
by the way – i do really like bright green like that or yellow so i can find em fast in the soup.
I’ve been told airbrush is lighter than resin tints(heresay); however, resin tint provides more protection in the long term from UV damage/board fade. Personal choice I guess. Myself – sick resin tints no matter what color it is, is the only way to fly. Fish me green, yellow or red…jammin, I’d be stoked!tone~
Airbrushing is more prone to delamination compared to resin tints because the paint doesn’t bond to the foam as well as resin does.
The above is a myth.
I have a supah kewl Matt Calvani Bing Quad Green with Gold Fins. I call it my Snoop Deville green for the money gold for the honeys. Yeah I’m a dork!
Green for the money gold for the honeys.. you have been watching to much “American Pimp” turn off your TV and go surfing.
so how about a short disertation by moonlight on the merrits and considerations regarding surfboard color options
