Dale Velzy golden balsawood Hot Curl 9’10 surfboard King Kamehameha artwork (1990’s)
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!
