Linden Agave wooden surfboards

May 23rd, 2008 · Comments Off on Linden Agave wooden surfboards

Very pretty boards. “A sustainable surfboard? Why not. Crafted from dead agave foraged from the SoCal desert, the Linden Agave Singlefin Surfboard ($2,500-$5,000) is great for the environment and even better for your beachside style.
