COMMON QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Q: Are these functional boards for surfing?
A: It depends! If you order a custom board you can request it be functional for surfing this means….
its water sealed, its the correct height for you, and you have to get it clear coat sealed at a board shop - it will come with a base clear coat but being soaked in the ocean requires a higher level of coating.
- Some of the first boards I painted are recycled not functional because they are not water-sealed and are for art display only. Recycled boards are the best option for someone purchasing a custom board as an art piece for display.
Q: Can you paint a board I already have?
A: Yes I can! and if you don’t have a board I can get one for you
Q: How is the art protected?
A: Art display pieces are coated in glossy resin, matte finishing can be done upon request. Functional surfboards are sealed with an acrylic spray to preserve the paint but require professional coating at a board shop.
Q: What does the price include?
A: The price includes ..
Time @ $48 per hour - more detailed designs take longer
Supplies $75-200 - depends if any specialty supplies are needed
Board - depends if you want a used board, your board, new board, or recycled board
Sealant $50- $100 - depends if you're using it for surfing or not which sealant I would use
Shipping - In the US I have shipped boards between $100 to $375 just depends on where it’s going
Q: How much is shipping? Where do you ship to?
A: Depends how far you are! The best way to get an accurate shipping quote to your exact location Is through DHL. Most Standard surfboards are between 5-7ft they weigh less than 10 lbs. The starting location is Los Angeles, California. I pack and protect all of the boards myself to make sure they will make it safe. I ship worldwide!
Q: How long does it take to make one?
A: Surfboard are a pretty big canvas I would say start to finish 10-30 hrs It depends on the piece especially if it is a recycled board it takes time to prep it for painting
Q: What materials do you use?
A: I use different types of acrylic paint, spray paint, paint pens, resin, acrylic sealant and sometimes gems and crystals for textured pieces
Q: Can I get these as a gift for someone?
A: Of course! This is one of the best gifts to give! A custom board can have so much detail and personal meaning put into it makes such an awesome thoughtful gift.
Q: How do I pay? Can I pay in increments?
A: To start your custom board design you pay a deposit. This ensures that you are serious about getting one. From there we move on to the design stage, this is where I make you a draft and we edit it until its exactly what you want. Full payment is required to begin the painting process. Payment plans, After-pay, and Klarna are all available through my website. I also accept credit, debit, Venmo, and PayPal.
Q: Can you draw me a draft first so I can see what it looks like?
A: Yes of course! I make a draft in photoshop of the “inspiration” for your piece. We go over this draft in detail until you are a thousand percent satisfied. I then use the draft as a reference to paint the board in my unique style.
Q: How do you come up with a design?
A: For custom pieces, it is a team effort between me and you! Making sure we fit in all the personal details you want this piece to symbolize. My already made available designs are just things I think look cool that I like to paint lol
Q: What is the time frame how long does it take?
A: 2-8 weeks is the typical time frame. It just depends on a lot of factors such as the detail of the design, how far away it’s shipping, getting the board, how big the board is, how many orders are ahead of yours
If you are interested in getting a custom Moonrise Design Surfboard please email me! Keep in mind there is typically a waitlist and creating a custom board can take up to 6 weeks. Painting a custom surfboard is specialized and tedious work and I only make 8 per year. If you have any additional questions feel free to reach out!
