Sydney surfboard painting madness – workshops & commissions ahoy!

Bondi Surfboard Painting Workshops with Fieldey

It’s all happening in camp Fieldey folks! In two and a half weeks I’m heading over to Sydney to run two special surfboard painting workshops in collaboration with Venus Goes Gidget. They’re both going to be held at the Amphitheatre garage at the Bondi Pavilion, so we’re right on the beach.

23rd Aug – All-girl workshop

This is a first time all-girl workshop, organised by the lovely Claudia from Venus Goes Gidget. Bring your board along and together we’ll prepare them for painting and I will divulge some awesome top secret retro spray techniques. No experience is necessary and your board will be ready to ride with it’s new sexy look.

24th Aug – Pimp your board!

Everyone from 12 – 102 is welcome at this workshop. Bring along your board and we’ll go through the process of preparing them for painting, then we have some fun with spray paint and learn easy retro spray paint techniques to make your stick look the sh!t. Of course we’ll also clear coat your artwork so you can take it out in the surf and rip in style!

Finished commission surfboard artwork

After three weeks in the making, this beautiful custom made and painted board is ready to be shipped to Karen in Florida! Karen contacted me via my website, asking if I could hand paint a surfboard for her. Working with my pals at Oceanline Surfboards here in Western Australia, we created this 6’8″ Funboard Egg with custom deck sprays and artwork. This baby is going to be queen of the waves!

Pictures of the whole process are below, but if you’re interested in having a board painted or getting a custom Fieldey inlay for a board you are having made, please either contact me or fill in the commissions form on my website.

It all starts with a sketch – the initial concept sketch I sent to Karen.

Clear coating the surfboard

Taking the board back to the shapers, we coat it in 2-pack clear coat to protect the artwork for surfing
