A true 100% agave board had never been done before

Enter Gary Linden, surf board shaper from San Diego. He’s been making surfboards for over 40 years.

“Sculpting something comes from what that piece of wood will allow you to carve.”

The key to completing the board was hidden at the source. Tequila, Mexico.

Local artisans helped Gary make the perfect deck patch. From cooked agave leaves.

“i don’t think there’s another plant on the planet that provides this opportunity.”
