Martijn Stipout and one of his classic wooden boards on the beaches of Northern California. Stipout's Vantana Surfboards was a feature of Starbuck's DoubleShot "Art of the Craft."
Stripe Men, Walnut Ave., Santa Cruz
Stiphout's boards are on display as a pop-up gallery in Stripe Men on Walnut Ave. in Santa Cruz.
Stipout had all manner of craft on display from logs to handplanes.

They may be art, but they sure are functional. Stiphout styling the good wood in Nor Cal.

Stiphout's hollow chamber wooden boards aren't so much shaped as built. But the intricacies are similar.
These being such artful boards, Stripe Men really was a perfect fit for a gallery.
The Art of Glide
While these boards are heavier than traditional foam, the weight can add some glide.
