Sotola Sunburst Flyer 4'10"
This stunning, custom board was created for Sotola Bar & Grill in Capitola Village, California. Head over to Sotola for farm fresh food and tasty beverages...and to admire this beautiful board.
The bottom deck's sun rays are made from reclaimed, local redwood and cypress from Thamer Design to match Sotola's tables. The water is reclaimed curly redwood.
The multi-colored sun and tail block are made from a very special piece of Douglas 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 sailed 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 top deck is made of redwood from an old hot tub salvaged in Aptos, California and features Indian rosewood, spruce and mahogany offcuts from Santa Cruz Guitar Company.
The tail block includes abalone inlay on the bottom and guitar purfling on the top.
The glassed-on thruster fins are made from redwood burl driftwood found at Seacliff State Beach after a storm.
The rails are made of cork which is more resistant to dings, and there are two sheets of Aerialite 4 ounce fiberglass on top and one on bottom. The epoxy is Entropy Super Sap 100 bio-resin which is up to 40% tree sap and is very strong and light.
As with all Ventana Surfboards, the interior is glassed and sealed, as well.
This board is hollow, lightweight and will ride as great as it looks. Given the uniqueness of each side, it's like two art pieces in one.
To match the board, we created a custom, vertical, Sotola-branded wall mount made of cork and reclaimed curly mahogany.
Made in Santa Cruz, California by master craftsman Martijn Stiphout.
Dimensions: 4'10" x 17.5" x 1.75"
