Skate star Christian Hosoi recently collaborated with California brand UNIV to produce a special-edition Hammerhead Surfboard. A scaled-up five-foot five-inch replica of the classic design created by Hosoi in the ’80s, the board represents a unique design intersection between the two boardsports.

Capping off the occasion were surfers Benji Weatherley and Dylan Graves who took the new board out for a test ride on the waves of Southern California. Look forward to the Hammerhead dropping soon in several sizes at UNIV.
