This surfboard brings together the quality of legendary shaper Gary Linden of Linden Surfboards and our iconic St. Frank Amber Stripe Kuba Cloth textile pattern. 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.
Kuba cloth is a unique textile featuring complex designs that are created when various geometric raffia pieces are stitched to a plain raffia background. The resulting rough surface is punctuated by repeated geometric patterns with unexpected interruptions in design. Men cultivate the raffia palm and weave the raffia cloth; women then create the patterned textiles. Traditionally, Kuba cloth was used as a wrapped skirt worn during burials. Later, it was incorporated in ceremonial dress for ritual dances and other celebrations. Our kuba cloth print from the Democratic Republic of the Congo is showcased in expert shaped and polished fiberglass for a sleek fish ride.
