Wave rider: Studio Zung’s new surfboard collection scores a perfect 10

Wave rider: Studio Zung’s new surfboard collection scores a perfect 10

You can always trust an architect to do what needs to be done. After years of being an avid surfer, Tommy Zung of the New York-based architecture firm Studio Zung put his design chops to work on a line of surfboards that are as easy on the eye as they are to ride in the water. Handcrafted in Southern California and backed by the expertise of pro-surfer and coach Brad Gerlach, the quartet of surfboards get their good looks from locales close to Zung’s heart. Whether its referencing scenes from Biarritz, Amangansett, Venice, California, or Zung’s own beach house in Montauk, the boards’ hazy colour palettes come with a restrained, yet graphic Ellsworth Kelly-esque quality that can be spotted a mile away.
