Tijny Tanker Longboard 8'4"
The Tijny Tanker Longboard is a performance work of art. It is quick to turn and a terrific nose rider. This board was created as Martijn Stiphout's personal board and is available for demo by prospective customers.
The top deck is made of reclaimed yellow cedar with redwood stripes from a salvaged hot tub. The center stringer of red, yellow, and green was donated by Upcycled Skate Art by way of US Blanks.
The bottom deck is made of redwood from a wine tank donated by Mission Bell by way of Martin Ray Winery. It also includes a center stringer donated by Upcycled Skate Art by way of US Blanks.
The stunning, translucent roots fin block is made of Doug fir from the hull of the Western Flyer, considered by many to be the most famous fishing boat in the world. John Steinbeck, Ed "Doc" Ricketts and crew chartered this 77-foot sardine boat into the Sea of Cortez in Baja
California, Mexico in 1940. The following year, Steinbeck published his book, The Log from the Sea of Cortez about the adventure. Learn more about this amazing boat and Ventana's use of its wood.
The tailblock is made of flame maple offcuts from Santa Cruz Guitar Company production. It includes an inlay of donkey ear shell on one side and abalone on the other. The brass leash and vent plugs are incorporated into the end of the block.
The rails are made of cork, and it was glassed with Entropy Resins Super Sap Resin and 4oz. fiberglass cloth (two layers on top and one on bottom) from Aerialite surf glass.
Made in Santa Cruz, California by master artisan Martijn Stiphout.
