Dale Velzy golden balsawood Hot Curl surfboard King Kamehameha artwork (1990s)


(SOLD) Dale Velzy golden balsawood Hot Curl 9’10 surfboard King Kamehameha artwork (1990s)
Featuring hand painted work of art depicting King Kamehameha III wearing a mahiole (feather helmet symbolizing the highest rank in the Hawaiian Kingdom). An additional floating King’s crown sits above the Hawaiian phrase “Ua Mau ke Ea o ka ʻĀina i ka Pono” spoken by Kamehameha III, and adopted in 1959 as the Hawaii state motto. Most commonly translated as “the life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.” A tribute to the 1930’s-40’s hot curl shape design, widely recognized as the first specialized big wave surfboard used in Hawaii. Shaped in the 1990’s by the late Dale Velzy (1927-2005). Pronounced 9’10 V-bottom shape with low profile redwood fin. A subtle yellow tint was used giving the balsawood a magnificent golden glow. Without a doubt, the most regal surfboard we’ve ever come across. Proudly ride or display this incredible piece of surfing history!
