The collaboration was on designing a surfboard range with McTavish, one of the worlds most renowned surfboard companies.
As you can see she chose "The Great Shalimar" design from my "British India" collection which has been blown up to a large scale.
This is what Sibella had to say about the collection " long time love affair with Byron bay, mixed with the ultimate desire of surfing with ease & grace led me to Mctavish’s doorstep. I am definitely of the ‘all the gear, no idea’ ilk so promptly got excited about designing my very own custom board. The problem being choosing only one design, and from this, the Gypsy range was born. Offering patterns & colours based on my travels & my books, I worked with some young Australian dyers, designers & artists to create unique graphics that are different on every single board.
Designers include: Indigo – dyed by Shibori, Jungle – print by Bethany Linz, Flamingo – design by The Society inc., Giraffe – print by Bonnie & Neil (still to come), Suzani: design by The Society inc. (still to come)
Long boards are the coolest boards, & all levels of surfers can ride these with ease (yes even beginners can catch some waves with these), and it means the patterns get great coverage. I designed the pattern to sit on the back of the board, so if you indeed do not surf but need an uber cool piece of art in your home or bar or wherever you can put this straight on your wall. And if you do in fact surf, the sticky surf wax will not mess up the beautiful artwork! Win win!!!! Be the coolest person on the beach or just have the latest, greatest for your interior.
McTavish step deck longboards are made to order and are offered in 8’2”, 8’4” & 8’6” with an 8-week delivery time to your doorstep or beachfront.
