A man's surfboard is an extension of his self, whether it glides under his feet as he attempts to straddle nature, or leans against his wall as he attempts to straddle anyone foolish enough to believe he actually surfs. Deepen the bond by personalizing your board, via 4Finger Design.
Finger's a custom surfboard-art outfit headed by an Encinitas-reared former PS3 animator who'd left that grind to take a position as the sole designer for t-shirtists Shatto and Son's when a tragic incident involving alcohol and a tree cost him a digit; at first he doubted his future in art, but later defiantly decided he'd put his vision at the service of those hanging 10, even if he was only hanging 9. How it works: after an initial creative consult and pricing session, he'll use water-based acrylic paint pens to realize your vision on one or both sides of your glassed short/long/I-swear-it's-average board, then cover it with a durable clear-coat that'll stand up to normal wear & tear without compromising surfability, thereby robbing you of the classic "damn this durable clear-coat" excuse. As far as images are concerned anything's possible, with early efforts ranging from simple line art to an octopus whose eye's formed by Quiver's "Q", to a giant Sequoia sporting flip-flopped human feet entitled "California Roots" -- hey, Kevin Eubanks left, so that door is open.
For those willing to glass their own foam, pre-resin art services are available, and he'll also work with other customer-provided media, from canvas to a nifty piece of driftwood -- a less devious route for those whose surfing ruse has been discovered, and whose wood has been subsequently adrift.
