Me and my buddy, an ex-Pro surfer, sat down one day and designed a little 5'3" tri-fin for Rachel's 6th birthday. Since she loves dolphins I went into the linen department at wal-mart and bought some material printed with some dolphin scenes. We cut out a piece of the fabric and layed it out onto the bare foam blank, then glassed over, and a little airbrush and walla, she now had a one of a kind custom surfboard.
Then my ole surf bud, while I wasn't looking, wrote her a little note onto the bottom of the board before spraying the final shot of clear. Kinda choked me up a little when I read it, hopefully she'll keep it long after I'm gone.
Oh,,,she loved it!:D
