The Tracks Electric Cool Surf Experiment

After a restful night at the La Casa stronghold, this morning we were greeted with gifts. Ben McTavish rapped on the door at around 10:30 bearing four varied and beautiful crafts, each the lovechild of the four shapers taking part in our Electric Cool Surf Experiment. Shaped two days prior in the Byron hinterland, they were turned around quick by some talented local board manufacturers and were now ready to go, that is of course after our artists had their way with them. Taking up varied positions around the house, each with a board under their arm they applied brush, pen and spray in a varied array of approaches. The results (or hints of) can be seen below. Stay tuned for when they hit the water in the next few days…
