This is a great example of a “partial board painting” where 3/4 of the surfboard is covered in art.

Drew personalized it for the client and the evening, by utilizing the clients’ logo (Hinano Tahiti) and their theme for the event, which was a Polynesian Charity Event.

The surfboard was raffled off and a bidding war ensued!
