This one’s sold! Learn more about Ventana custom wooden surfboards.
This performance, sleek thruster has bottom and top decks made from redwood offcuts provided by Uncommon Brewers, makers of Ventana Special Bitter and other classic beers.
The butterfly keys are made of flame maple and Brazilian rosewood offcuts from Santa Cruz Guitar Company production. Founded in 1976, the Santa Cruz Guitar Company brought boutique guitar making to the forefront of the steel string guitar business. They have created custom guitars for some of the top names in the music industry: Eric Clapton, Brad Paisley, Jimmy Buffet, Tony Rice, Elvis Costello, Nokie Edwards , Jerry Garcia, and hundreds of others.
The thruster fins are glassed on and, along with the tail block, are made of Douglas fir from the hull of the Western Flyer, considered by many to be the most famous fishing boat in the world. John Steinbeck, Ed "Doc" Ricketts and crew sailed this 77-foot sardine boat into the Sea of Cortez in Baja California, Mexico in 1940. The following year, Steinbeck published his book, The Log from the Sea of Cortez about the adventure. Learn more about this amazing boat and Ventana's use of its wood. Look closely and you can see the brass we inlayed in the square nail holes using a secret process. The tail block also has an abalone inlay.
The rails are made of cork which is sustainable, more resistant to dings, and easier to repair. There are two sheets of Aerialite 4 ounce fiberglass on top and one on bottom. The epoxy is Entropy Super Sap 100 bio-resin which is up to 40% tree sap and is very strong and light.
As with all Ventana Surfboards, the interior is glassed and sealed, as well. Tyler Hopkins of Locus Surfboards did the sand and polish on the board.
This board is hollow, lightweight and will ride as great as it looks. We provide a free wall mount or floor stand depending on your need.
Made in Santa Cruz, California by master craftsman Martijn Stiphout.
Includes an aluminum, museum-quality 4"x6" display sign and a handmade bag by Sagebrush Board Bags created using coffee bean sacks and unique, remnant fabrics.
