Live on-air interview provides insight into the fascinating world of The Maud

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 14 August, 2016 - Surfersvillage took their popular surfboard review format to the beaches of Southwest France with French surfer Maud Le Car.

In the off-the-cuff, unscripted broadcast live from the beach at Anglet Maud pulled out her favourite boards and talked about what designs work best for her surfing, in this case a Lost V2 shortboard, Pocket Rocket and SubDriver. But as often happens on live TV the conversation quickly veered into the world of painting as Maud shared with the audience her love of art.

“Surfing is so physical it’s nice to do something cerebral, like painting,” Maud said during the broadcast. “I really enjoy painting all my boards because it makes them more personal. My mother is a painter, my grandmother is a painter and it’s something we all do in the family.”  

Maud described both the Posca Pen technique and a spray bottle technique to paint surfboards.

For the board test Maud pulled out a new carbon wrap Lost custom and gave it a go in the challenging, windy, bumpy surf. When she returned to shore she grabbed her favourite board, an epoxy glassed PU blank V2 shortboard and got in two quick waves. Viewers were able to see how lively her favourite board went in the dismal conditions.

Once back on shore we learned the importance of getting boards from a shaper who understands the design requirements and needs of women surfers as Biolos shapes boards for Carissa Moore, Tyler Wright, Coco Ho and many more of the world’s best women surfers.
