This is how my surfboard used to look…

I had a Liquid Force surfboard from 2009 and it started looking a bit yellow, cracked from too much use in the sun and a bit of brutal strapless riding. When we first put the 2012 Liquid Force Envy in the sky…we were so amazed by the retro-lego design! I called a friend photographer Christos and asked if he could help me out! In no time i had a A4 paper printed with my surfboard, looking likean Envy…i was so stoked that i went to Super Home Center bought sprays, tapes, varnish, sandpapers and started the project! After a few days it was ready…as soon as i removed the tapes i was about to cry 🙂 Went to Christos office-studio and he did the rest…enjoy 🙂
