Double Helix Flyer Longboard 9'0"
The top deck incorporates the same, floorboard redwood as the bottom and has a stringer inlay inspired by Mexican design elements and made of Indian rosewood and spruce offcuts from the Santa Cruz Guitar Company.
Nail holes in the redwood have been filed with brass using a secret Ventana process.
The tail block was crafted from 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 rails are made of U.S grown cork, and it was glassed with Entropy Super Sap Bio Resin and 4oz. fiberglass cloth (two layers on top and one on bottom). As with all Ventana boards, the interior is glassed and sealed, as well.
Made in Santa Cruz, California by Amaya Dennis and master craftsman Martijn Stiphout. See the library of progress pictures and videos for this board.
