Is the color for the handlettering working, or does it blend in too much?

I think it blends a little too well. Perhaps a white? Love the illustration!

I like the white idea!

I think the coloring is fine, I can read it well. If you wanted to try something else, you could make the lettering red like the 3 fins on the surf board

Very cute! I would definitely play around with the type so it's more prominent. Either white or possibly red and maybe a bit larger? Best of luck!

I have no trouble reading the words but agree that if you wanted it to pop more, you could use the red from the surf board.

I like the idea of trying the red or the orange from the surfboard. The text isn't hard to read at this size which is good because it'll be even easier in real life. I love the illustration!
