Saarloos & Sons Family Winery x Bruce Jones Surfboards - Los Olivos, CA

A recent collaboration gave us an opportunity to work with some special materials and tell two stories of knowledge passed from one generation to the next. Keith Saarloos, of Saarloos & Sons, is a 2nd generation wine-maker from Santa Barbara County and owner of several Bruce Jones longboards. He provided us with red-oak staves from barrels once used by his father to store their family wines. From these we crafted a nose- & tailblock, the latter of which is still stained red, forever preserving the fruit of their labor and craft. 

Modern Longboard shaped by Brock Jones and glassed at the Waterman's Guild.
