Black Bear Brand and Tilley Surfboards released their collaborative project last month. To try out the new surfboard a road-trip ensued, from Seattle to Port Orford (home to Tilley). A '66 Lincoln, an undisclosed break, and a new fish shape are all captured beautifully in these photographs.
The two labels are obsessed with quality and heritage, so it is no wonder that the finish product is not only beautiful, but also extremely functional. The board is crafted from solid wood and features a custom milled deck, bottom, rails and fins. It also has a hand-shaped EPS core for increased control.
If nothing else, let these photos be a reminder to enjoy these last days of nice weather before the onset of winter. Go outside, get a little sun, take a road-trip.
