This is another surfboard from my Wood Grain gone Wild Series (also see Gabe’s First). It’s a 7’ 2” x 18-¾” pin tail shaped hollow wood surfboard which will lay flat against a wall because it has no fins.
Display this piece showing either the deck of the board or the bottom of the board – both sides are highly decorative. And it looks great in either a vertical floor stand or mounted in a horizontal orientation.
I love working with cocobolo because there are so many different colors and grain patterns hiding inside of a single stick of lumber.
The grain is swirly and tight – all at once – a unique property of cocobolo. And once it is finished with fiberglass and polished to a high-gloss shine, the variegated colors really pop.
In addition to the cocobolo, I also used wenge, redwood, basswood, and paulownia.
If you have any questions about my surfboards or would like to discuss a commissioned work of art, please contact me here.
