Needless to say, there are a lot parallels between the pursuits of skateboarding and surfboarding, not least the fact that they are both effortlessly cool activities so it stands to reason that a Californian brand that offers great apparel and apparatus geared towards both has certainly caught our eye here at Coolector HQ. Say hello to SALT SURF, a supremely cool lifestyle brand operating out of Culver City in California and who boast some of the coolest looking skateboards, surfboards and apparel you’re likely to encounter.
The brainchild of Nabil Samadani, SALT SURF are relative newcomers to the market in a bricks and mortar sense. Though the brand originated back in New York back in 2011, it wasn’t until 2017 when they opened their first conventional store in Culver City in California and the rest, as they say, is history. They offer everything that today’s skateboarding and surfing fraternity will appreciate and the quality of their boards – both skate and surf – are second to none and we’re loving their aesthetic here at The Coolector.
With an overriding objective to create wares that people can truly connect with and see themselves in, SALT SURF put a lot of time and effort into the design and craftsmanship of their skateboards, surfboards and apparel. They’ve already begun to carve a niche in the market for themselves which is inclusive, open-minded and straightforward in execution and it’s hard not to be won over by the extremely striking yet understated aesthetic of their goods.
Each of their surfboards, supremely cool skateboards and their apparel is crafted in Southern California in San Diego and this delivers a tangible sense of quality you don’t often see. Taken design influences from their New York and California origins, the visual appeal of the products from SALT SURF really is second to none and whether you’re looking for a new skateboard, surfboard or T-shirt this summer, you’re sure to find something that more than fits the bill with this top notch Californian brand.
The standout product for us at The Coolector is their brilliantly crafted and top performing walnut cruiser skateboards which are perfectly suited for super cool urban excursions. These are made from a real walnut veneer (both on the top and bottom) which sandwiches layers of maple in between for a stunning visual impact. Each board measures 22″ in length and boasts a slight kick in the tail for added control when performing turns.
For anyone on the hunt for a well-crafted, striking skateboard or surfboard, SALT SURF are unquestionably a brand that need to be on your radar. The fact that they’ve also got a mighty fine line up of T-shirts and apparel merely serves as the icing on the cake in our opinion here at Coolector HQ. With a vintage style aesthetic that really sets them apart, the walnut cruiser skateboards from SALT SURF truly are a cut above and will appeal to those who really want to make a mark with their choice of ride.
SALT SURF are the sort of brand that we’ve got an awful lot of time for here at Coolector HQ. With a real dedication to producing small batch, quality goods that stand the test of time, there is a lot to like about this cracking Californian brand. If you find yourself in need of a new skateboard this summer or planning a surfing trip and need a new board, then you really need look no further than SALT SURF in our opinion.
