This surfboard brings together the quality of legendary shaper Gary Linden of Linden Surfboards and our iconic St. Frank Black Tree of Life Suzani 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. The Black Tree of Life Suzani textile is inspired by a vintage St. Frank piece created in Uzbekistan, this suzani tree of life design represents three spheres: the roots spring from the underworld, the trunk rises through the terrestrial world, and the branches reach the heavens. Traditionally used for wall hangings or as a woman's marriage dowry, the flower designs are symbolic of fertility and fruitfulness. The tree of life's decorative embroidery is also thought to possess a protective element.
