Whisper Editions and Vital Force collaborate on a limited series of surfboards made by “surfboard shaper and shamanic practitioner,” JD San Jose. The outcome is four hand-carved designs that are available in three custom colors — turquoise, beige and “butter” yellow. From the versatile Stubby, an ideal board for easy flow, to the super long Walkabout, a perfect choice for nose riding, each board produces its own aerodynamic experience. Plus, who wouldn’t want boards made by a shaman? San Jose says, “Sometimes I’ll see an animal, like a cobra, and I’ll know that’s the spirit of the board. Or I’ll see a feather and the board will be light and thin.” You can shop them here starting at $750.
