Let It Ride

An Architect Designed These Surfboards

It’s a shame about architects.

They spend all that time designing houses on top of waterfalls and stuff.

When really, they should probably just be making you surfboards.

All that changes with Studio Zung Ride Collection, an assemblage of architect-designed surfboards, skateboard decks and a bike that are all far more attractive than is typically demanded, available online now.

The architect behind this happens to be the godson of Buckminster Fuller. You may remember him as the famed 20th-century architect who was fond of making giant, Epcot-looking domes. Maybe not. Doesn’t matter.

What matters is this stuff and what you’re going to do with it. Specifically:

Skateboarding
On a piece of seven-ply maple decorated in a style that evokes medieval Moroccan architecture. If not medieval Moroccan skateboards.

Cycling
Via a hand-built cruiser wrapped in black leather. It’s like wearing a leather jacket and riding a bike at the same time.

Surfing
With one of their longboards hand-formed in Southern California and inspired by a minimalist painter. They’re all made to order, and they will arrive in about a month.

In the meantime, maybe find a wetsuit.
