New Longboard - 'Attack of the Marakihau'

Pages: 1 5 replies


Hey guys! Haven't been on here in a while or made much Tiki art due to university, but since graduating its been so good to get back into making things again.. I have been looking forward to using up the remaining birch 5 ply in the garage for a long while, so I decided to build a new longboard..

The design is a combination of sourced tribal tattoo imagery that I manipulated to fit together, and an original drawing, the 'Marakihau' sea monster inspired by Maori carvings.

The detail is burnt on with a pyrography pen, including the border between the two-tone staining.

It still needs holes drilled for mounting trucks and a coat of varnish but I'm considering leaving it without trucks and wall mounting it. Anyway, thought I would share it and hope you guys like it.. I hope to be making some more stuff over the summer and get back into carving too!

That's fantastic, love it!
