Wax Poetic

Handmade Surfboards from... Brooklyn Architects

When selecting a surfboard, a notable origin story is key.

A board once personally blessed by the Dalai Lama and Lori Petty—well, that would be nice. Good luck with that.

In the meantime, check out some hand-shaped beauties forged on a sidewalk somewhere in Brooklyn...

Here for all your hang-loose needs is Wax/Surf Co, a nice-looking new line of surfboards crafted by some Brooklyn architects, taking orders now.

Think of Point Break Swayze. Then take away the sun-bleached mullet (bummer) and give him an architecture degree. Then you’d be pretty close to Tyler and Michael, the guys behind your new surfboard that’ll do wonders for your roundhouse cutback—or just make you look like you can do a roundhouse cutback if you happen to have one leaning against your wall just so.

Right, to the boards: think clean, modern lines of hand-shaped Brooklyn goodness. If you’re road tripping to the Sebastian Inlet to catch your first wave soon, you could bring the all-black Swallow Fish shortboard. Or there’s the Chevron Quad longboard, if you’re in the market for something with a random astronaut on it.

And who wouldn’t be.
