BLACKFERN SURFBOARDS

a few weeks ago I was given the best anniversary gift ever, my very own surfboard.

although we could of just purchased one at one of our local adventure stores we chose to go very local and use Blackfern surf, a backyard board company right here in se portland, or.

Mike at BF took my skill level and matched me up with a board to go with my needs, pretty excited to figure out a color palette.

06-16 BLACKFERN (15)stay tuned, I can’t wait to see what is built with my colors.

My [Custom Order] Maxene from Oregon, US

I reached out to Minjee Kang via her ETSY account to make this one of a kind ‘paper’ anniversary gift for my first year wedding anniversary.

In the illustration is us in our wedding outfits with the rock of Gibraltar in the background and one of those cute barbary ape’s that tried to steel my bouquet the following day. Minjee @BIGFASHIONBOOK did an excellent job!
