Bursting Sun Moon 9' Longboard
This gorgeous, sunburst/moon burst longboard with infinity swirl top deck is a performance work of art and was a special commission for an upcoming feature film.
The bottom deck is designed to represent the sun and the moon. The moon itself is an unknown species of burl driftwood found at Andrew Molera State Beach in Big Sur, CA. The sun is a piece of manzanita burl from Bonny Doon, CA. The water horizon between the representation of night and day is likely bubinga, offcut from a cabinet shop in Santa Cruz, CA. The rays rising over the water are of redwood and Douglas fir reclaimed from an old house owned by MMA fighter Gray Maynard in Capitola, CA.
The stunning, old growth redwood top deck came from a trellis built in the 1960s that covered a Bocce Ball court in Scotts Valley, CA. The infinity swirls are also from Gray Maynard's house in Capitola.
Nail holes in the reclaimed woods throughout the board are filled with brass to represent stars.
The tail block is made of walnut offcut from Potaito Skateboards and has inlays of Northern California abalone shell on both sides.
The fin is reclaimed redwood offcuts from Thamer Design & Woodworking in Santa Cruz and Alaska yellow cedar from old benches from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The leash and vent plugs are hand-turned claro walnut, also from Thamer.
The rails are made of oak cork, and it was glassed with Entropy Super Sap 100 Bio Resin and 4 ounce 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 master craftsman Martijn Stiphout.
