The bottom and top decks include wood from the original Western Flyer, considered by many to be the most famous fishing boat in the world. John Steinbeck, Ed "Doc" Ricketts and crew chartered this 77-foot sardine boat into the Sea of Cortez in Baja California, Mexico in 1940. The following year, Steinbeck publishedWestern Flyer 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. We filled the square nail holes in the hull wood with Entropy Resins bio-based epoxy and Black Diamond Pigments Aztec Gold.

We've incorporated into the bottom deck Alaskan yellow cedar offcuts from the Western Flyer rebuild project, salvaged redwood house siding, black walnut from USA Millwork, Douglas fir from the San Francisco Bay Bridge, Douglas fir from a local cabinet shop, oak from Martini & Prati wine tanks, mahogany from Poke House, wenge from Upcycled Skate Art, and bloodwood from a cabinet shop.

The fin is made of redwood from the original Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, quilted maple from Meier Brothers Furniture, mahogany from Poke House, Doug fir and Alaskan yellow cedar from the Western Flyer boat, and black walnut from Alibi Interiors

The top deck includes a vent and leash plug of oxidized oak from the Western Flyer boat's ribs, fiddleback redwood from the Santa Cruz Mountains, redwood from a salvaged water tank, redwood from John Steinbeck’s first house in Pacific Grove, salvaged redwood house siding, redwood floorboards from the 1800s from the Schwan mansion, redwood from red wine tanks from Martini & Prati, redwood sap wood from a salvaged fence, and hand-painted black and gold pin lines.

The rails are made of cork which is more resistant to dings. There are two sheets of Aerialite 4 ounce fiberglass on top and one on bottom. The epoxy is Entropy Resins bio-based epoxy 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.

This board is hollow, lightweight and will ride as great as it looks. Given the uniqueness of each side, it's two art pieces in one.

Made in Aptos, California by master artisan Martijn Stiphout.

Includes a Ventana Save-A-Surf Box; a wooden 5"x7" display sign; and a handmade bag by Sagebrush Board Bags created using coffee bean sacks and unique, remnant fabrics.
