Walden Surfboards

Sold 8'0 Wahine Shabby Chic #SC1


This is a one of a kind board that we pulled out of the archives. As part of a Limited Edition program with designer Rachel Ashwell and her brand Shabby Chic we produced  25 surfboards featuring Rachel's exclusive Shabby Chic fabrics for her signature store in Malibu.  We made one board for our archives, after a lot of requests for the board we are finally offering it for sale. This is the only board with this particular Shabby Chic fabric inlay. This board is a Magic Model..just a very petty one. 

The board has light blue rails and bottom with a light pink pinline. The board features exclusive Shabby Chic fabric that has a off-white/ cream background with an all over floral/ rose pattern and a background of light blue flowers. 

DImensions: 8'0 x 18 1/2 x 22 x 14 1/4 x 3 

About our girls boards....Walden Surfboards was the first company to design an entire line of surfboards just for women called Walden Wahine, ( Wahine is Hawaiian for girl)  we didn't just add a token pink surfboard to our existing men's line but rather we created an entire range of surfboards for the full range of women surfers. We slimmed out the dimensions and made a slightly narrower Magic Model, we kept all the performance but sized the boards especially for women...oh yeah, and made them really beautiful. 

About out Magic Model: The Magic Model is the original modern longboard, an all around performance surfboard and nose rider. The Magic Model is designed for all wave heights and all skill levels, just as fun in small surf as it is in big surf.  The Magic Model hull has a unique design, so unique it has a patent. Starting at the nose the hull has a single concave that transitions into a double concave about midway through the board and ends towards the tail forming a moderate “V” for fluid rail to rail transitions.The Magic Model rails have a hard edge from nose to tail, unlike round railed boards which push through water and allow water to wrap around the board  slowing it down,  the Magic's hard rails glide on top the water creating a sensitivity and quickness that makes the board fast and easy to turn. What this all means...the concave at the nose adds lift and stability, perfect for nose riding. The double con-caved hull and hard rails make the board fast, stable, responsive and maneuverable in all conditions.
