One of the things I told myself I’d do a few years ago was learn to surf with Amy. One of the thing I admire most about her is that she is constantly trying new things, tackling old fears and learning learning learning. A couple summers ago headed out to the Rockaways, hopped on a surfboard and made it look like surfing was the easiest thing in the world to do. While I haven’t quite had the guts to join her, I’ve been admiring, and enjoying, the way she’s been injecting surf culture into our lives at the office. So when I got an email from McTavish Surfboards about their collaboration with Sibella Court, I got excited.
Sibella has been coordinating a series of collaborations between young Australian artists, dyers and designers to create graphics for McTavish’s surf boards. This new collection, called Gypsy, includes beautiful work by Shibori, Bethany Linz, The Society Inc. and soon to come, Bonnie & Neil. I love the way that Sibella thinks about adding pattern and color to any product you find in your daily life. So whether you’re heading out to surf this morning or just want to hang something unexpected and beautiful on your walls, these boards would make quite the statement piece.
