Superstrong surfboards now available

 

Shake off the pressure and delve into the waves with the world's most luxurious surfboards developed by Ammunition, the design firm behind Beats by Dre and Square. Ammunition's travel products start-up, Octovo, teamed up with surfboard builder Jason Tilley to design these limited-edition luxury surfboards, which come with custom-tailored carrying bags.

The core of each board is made from a handcrafted blank. The deck and bottom skins are custom-milled from solid wood. Skins are bonded to the blank, resulting in a strong composite sandwich. Solid wood noses, tail blocks and a rail are added to prevent damage, making them more durable than ordinary surfboards. The least expensive of these boards costs HK$23,250.
