Sacred Surfboard

Sacred Alien with Red and Black Flower Of Life  for David. 

Its a custom, with dimensions are 6' 4" by 20 1/4" by 2 5/8 , 34 litres .

The Flower Of Life patterns has been one of the really popular designs /artwork on the Formula Energy range of surfboards.

Its geometrical patterns in a whole range of colours that can be hypnotic, when you stare at the pattern to long . 

Surfers often tell us , whilst sitting out the back waiting for waves, you often sub consciously get caught up staring at the deck of your surfboard.

The pattern creates an optical illusion and an altered  depth of perception . The longer you look the more shapes and patterns you can identify.  

Its definitely has hypnotic qualities but is also very centering !

The Flower of Life is a name for a geometrical figure composed of seven or more evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. This figure, used as a decorative motif since ancient times, forms a flower-like pattern with the symmetrical structure of a hexagon.

The perfect form, proportion and harmony of the flower of life has been known to philosophers, architects and artist around the world. Pagans consider it to be sacred geometry containing ancient religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time.

Figures as prominent as Leonardo da Vinci are said to have ascribed significance to the Flower of Life and three similar symbols, called the "Egg of Life," the "Fruit of Life," the "Seed of Life".

The ‘egg of life’ is said to form the basis for music as the distances between the spheres is identical to the distances between the tones and the half tones in music. It is also identical to the cellular structure of the third embryonic division (The first cell divides into two cells, then to four cells then to eight). Thus this same structure as it is further developed, creates the human body and all of the energy systems.

The Flower of Life around the World
One interesting feature of the Flower of Life is that evidence of its importance can be found in almost every major culture around the world. It can be seen in temples within the Forbidden City of China, in ancient synagogues in Israel, in the Buddhist temples of India and Japan, in the City of Ephesus in Turkey, carved into rock in Assyria, in Italian art from the 13th century, and in Cordoba, in ‘la Mezquita’ in Spain.
The oldest known examples of the Flower of Life are believed to be those present in the Temple of Osiris in Abydos, Egypt. Most archaeologists maintain that they are at least 6,000 years old, though some have argued that it dates to the 2nd century AD. The most peculiar feature of the Flower of Life in Abydos is that it appears that it was not carved into the granite but instead may have been burned into the granite or somehow drawn on it with incredible precision. It is thought to possibly represent the Eye of Ra, a symbol of the authority of the pharaoh.

Limited water time of late means paddle fitness is lacking and Bali bound for a holiday , extra foam for paddle power was the priority to keep up with the grommets !

We made the shooter 6'6 by 21 3/4 by 2 7/8 and managed to squeeze 47 litres into the plan-shape.

A true High Performance Fish with plenty of volume !

Alien Shooter

USC Alien Step up 6'6 by 19 3/4 by 2 9/16th ( 34 litres ), custom for Tony ,heading for the "Coal Coast" in Southern NSW.

 The purple colour on the deck on this Alien Step Up surfboard is actually an organic hemp material thats combined with recycled plastic bottles . The plastics have been broken down into small pellets , it goes by the name Hemp/ PET material . 

Its a great alternate way to make a surfboard more durable, especially for heavy footed surfers who tend to crush / damage there decks, but it still retains those performance aspects of a modern surfboard.

Hemp is way more environmentally friendly than our traditional cotton .
For example you require about half the amount of water to produce hemp as you would if producing cotton. Hemp is a strong and reliable plant that grows very quickly. Not only that, hemp produces about 200% – 250% more fibre in the same amount of land compared to cotton.

Read more about the way we apply the hemp deck to the Formula Energy range of surfboards, here

Hemp Decks

Above is the  Hemp cloth inlay on the deck , providing durability from a cool looking sustainable material that replaces  another layer of traditional fibreglass cloth .

Hemp material is one of the strongest natural fibres on the earth .

Previously  its been associated with heavy brown coloured low performance type surfboards . Good idea but to sluggish to ride and look a tad ugly .

But by combining the hemp/pet material with modern laminating techniques  and using the performance based parabolic carbon rails of the USC range  , you get a cool looking surfboard that not only will look better long term , with a more durable deck, with less foot wells and indentations, depressions and its totally UV protected from the Sun !

Without compromising any performance characteristics of modern performance surfboard. 

This custom USC Alien is 6'2 by 20 by 2 9 /16 , 33 litres .

Grommet Special

Custom 5'4 for Will who stands around 4'2 and weighs in 30 kgs. Will has been killing it on the the DCD Demon model and at Six years old is progressing really quick ..

Check him out styling at the Pass in Byron Bay 

We based this custom of the Alien style fish plan-shape with your rounder nose and a lot of foam carried forward .

However Will wanted the look of a more traditional performance pointy nose surfboard .

 We created a new outline , rounded of the nose , softened all the pointy dangerous bits to keep Mum happy avoiding any injuries and designed the Surfboard to allow Will to progress and grow into the board able to catch waves with ease and confidence but still able to duckdive and paddle out with his other frothing super GROMMET mates 

And of course custom art work is the character Johnny Test ... The kids favourite cartoon at the moment !
