Wax/Surf Co. for Kaufmann Mercantile Handmade Surf Board

Kaufmann Mercantile team up with fellow Brooklyn native Wax/Surf Co. to create a handmade fiberglass and foam core surfboard. Using their backgrounds in architecture and custom fabrication, the company founders Tyler Jorgenson and Michael Farley spend 20 hours creating a single fin box tail design that has a wide nose for balancing those tricky rides. The clean and minimalist aesthetic is finished with a white resin paint coat and fulfills Kaufmann Mercantile’s strict mandate of only merchandising long-lasting and well-designed goods. The board is emblazoned with Wax/Surf Co.’s moon logo, a symbol that provides its rider with good omens for higher tides and bigger breaks. Shop it here for $990.
