Get your hands on 1 of 10 Limited Edition, handcrafted, wooden surfboards created by local shaper Jack Candlish, from the environmentally conscious surfboard company Organic Dynamic.
These boards retail for just $2,000 – with $500 per board going to the new clubrooms.
Organic Dynamic are the first company in the southern hemisphere to be awarded with the gold level eco board certification. Each board will be laser etched with this, and the Lyall Bay surf Life saving Logo, and numbered from 2 to 10. The first board, pictured below was auctioned off at the fundraiser earlier in the year.
The boards are made from 100% locally recycled polystyrene packaging, thanks to Polypalace, And the timber has been reclaimed from the demolition of the old surf club. It’s actually the old Douglas-Fir Joists.
The boards weigh in at about 6kg and utilise a combination of hand-craft, and the latest computer technology – a real merging of old school skills and modern wizardry. And best of all, they’re made right here in Wellington.
Here’s the specs:
Jack has kindly offered his time to make 10 of these custom boards just for the club. These historic pieces are a great example of functional art, and come with Wellington history built-in!
An invisible wall mount similar to the one pictured above can also be commissioned on request for $120.
You can secure one of these Limited Edition masterpieces by paying the $2,000 up-front – this will enable Jack to get on with crafting your board as quickly as possible. The time required to handcraft the boards means you will need to be patient, but as we think you’ll agree, they’ll be worth it.
Buy yours now and we guarantee you’ll be riding it by summer!
