This surfboard brings together the quality of legendary shaper Gary Linden of Linden Surfboards and our iconic St. Frank textile patterns. Gary Linden has been a surfer for over 50 years and has been shaping boards for almost as long. He is a founder of the Big Wave Tour and is the oldest active big wave surfer today. This collaboration combines the highest standards of a functional surfboard with artistic expression that can live on the water or your walls.
Originating in Cote D'Ivoire, Baule textiles are created from narrow cotton bands woven on horizontal foot-treddle looms. Baule culture is heavily agricultural, and because of this, men traditionally complete most of the weaving, splitting time between their craft and work in the fields. This Baule textile was originally worn by a woman as a wraparound skirt, also referred to as a wrapper or pagne. The word pagne was a term introduced by merchants from the 16th Century and adopted by several African societies to identify often pre-existing textiles or garments distinct from a simple cloth.
