Gary Linden x St. Frank

This surfboard brings together the quality of legendary shaper Gary Linden of Linden Surfboards and our St. Frank Miao 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. This pattern is inspired by a vintage Miao wedding blanket. The Miao are an ethnic minority group from the mountainous provenances of southern China. Wedding blankets were woven in cotton and silk by the bride and her family as a gift to the groom and his family. The brocades feature elaborate geometric motifs that require a high level of skill. Within Miao families, weaving is taught from mother to daughter. Once the daughter masters this complex craft, she is considered ready for marriage.
