This surfboard brings together the quality of legendary shaper Gary Linden of Linden Surfboards and our iconic St. Frank indigo textile pattern. Gary Linden has been a surfer for over 50 years and has been shaping boards for almost as long. He is a founder of the Big Wave Tour and is the oldest active big wave surfer today. This collaboration combines the highest standards of a functional surfboard with artistic expression that can live on the water or your walls. Since ancient times, from opulent Egypt to stark West Africa, fabric has been dyed a mysterious, beautiful blue, represented on this surfboard. The indigo color, or "gold blue," is a symbol of the link between heaven and earth. Through a careful process, indigo can produce a vast palette of blue hues, from the palest sky to the deepest midnight. Dye vats take a full week to prepare and require daily stirring. The un-dyed cloth is pinched, sewn, and tied according to precise patterns. Once dyed, the ties are removed, revealing patterns of lines, shells, dots, or tracery. Our West African indigo print is showcased in expert shaped and polished fiberglass for a stylish longboard ride.
