Beats By Dre Designers Create Luxury Surfboards

The design team behind Beats by Dre and Square – the Octovo travel products brand, Ammunition has teamed up with surfboard craftsman Jason Tilley to create hand-crafted line of what they’re calling the “world’s most luxurious surfboards” and bag. Constructed to last a lifetime, the limited edition series includes five board shapes: the fish, longboard, egg, mini-simmons, and swallow, built using Tilley’s method of combining custom milled wooden skins and hand-shaped foam. How implies above mentioned epithet “luxury”: the cheapest of these boards costs $3,000.

They also created bags worthy of these boards. Custom tailored and balanced for each board, the bags are made from durable, UV resistant Sunbrella and lined with a combination of waterproof, breathable, shock resistant and temperature insulating materials.

According to Ammunition, this collaboration was intended as a creative expression of Octovo’s mission to provide “Beautiful tools for connected travelers.”
