Riley Hawaiian balsawood 9’0 gun #1 by Mark Riley (2023)
Features a pintail shape design with 7 Australian red cedar stringers and matching cedar/balsa combination nose and tail blocks. Stunning hand-foiled cedar and balsa laminated fin with intricate design. Shaped by Mark Riley in 2023. This board is serial #1 indicating it’s the first Riley surfboard made for the US market since Mark began shaping in 1996. Mark Riley spent countless hours blending balsa from South America with Australian red cedar to construct the stringers. Shaped to classic Hawaiian templates, at 9’0” x 19” x 3” it’s a proven big-wave shape. A spectacular one-off surfboard and worthy collectible. “In our 25 years of building Riley Balsawood Surfboards this is the first of its kind for the USA,” says Mark. “It was built with passion and solely by hand. Laid up with custom balsa/cedar nose and tail blocks, it has 7 stringers using gorgeous deep red Aussie cedar. It’s fitted with a hand-made 1 of a kind 7” gun shape cedar/balsa fin with sunrise/wave design”. Ride or display this magnificent wooden surfboard work of art.
