Tales From The Tube Surf-Skate (9.75”x 30.5” )


Rick Griffin (1944-1991) is widely known in the surfing world as one of the original 'surf artists'. To honor his legacy we designed 2 surf-skate models featuring two of his most iconic surf images. The boards are built with the same quality construction as our cruisers, but they feature a unique truck setup to deliver insane turning dynamics which allow for short and maneuverable carve turns like surfing.

All boards sold directly from the California Locos website come with our custom skateboard box featuring original artwork from Rick Griffin, which can easily be framed and turned into a piece of art on your wall.
