Custom Tattoo Design Grom 4'10"
This performance, sleek thruster was created for Custom Tattoo Design. You dream it, they draw it. They work with you one-on-one from anywhere in the world to turn your ideas into beautifully drawn custom tattoo designs like the on the bottom deck of this board. The tattoo design was printed on fiberglass by Boardlams and overlayed on reclaimed cedar.
The top deck of this board is made of salvaged, fiddleback redwood from the Santa Cruz Mountains. We've also incorporated Indian rosewood, Honduras mahogany, and spruce from Santa Cruz Guitar Company production offcuts.
The thruster fins are glassed on and translucent. The edges are reclaimed cedar.
Thee tail block is 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. 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.
Made in Santa Cruz, California by master craftsman Martijn Stiphout.
Includes a handmade bag by Sagebrush Board Bags created using coffee bean sacks and unique, remnant fabrics.
Dimensions: 4'10" x 17.5" x 2.0"
