Karen shapes each surfboard from real surfboard foam blanks. When shaping the surfboards, Karen prefers retro shapes with wider surfaces and fun tail designs. Since each board is created as an art piece, aesthetics of size and shape are the primary focus. Therefore, the final design may not conform to standard surfboard construction. Each artwork is unique. Some boards display stamp patterns, collage and layers of gold-leaf, silver-leaf or copper. Every surfboard is hand-painted and specially glassed extra-thick to bring out the colors and shine.
