Product Details

Huntington Beach surfer and artist Dave Reynolds designed and meticulously handcrafts these extraordinary chess sets to exact scale in woods like Hawaiian koa, teak, walnut and California redwood.

A local surf historian with 40 years experience on the board and Exhibits Director at the International Surfing Museum in Huntington Beach, Dave knows his surfboards.

The surfboard outlines and rail contours are made using templates and drawings from the last 100 years of surfboard design. The sculpted portions of the chess pieces are made from cold cast bronze with antique brass and pewter tone finishes. Each piece is carefully weighted has its underside lined with black velvet.

Antique bronze and pewter custom resin bases are combined with both domestic and exotic woods for a remarkable showpiece on beautiful 17" x 17" playing surface crafted from birch and walnut inlays. The unique bamboo board base is a breaking wave, forming a table 30" in height.

The chess set comes with Dave's custom designed 20" x 20" bamboo chess board in maple and mahogany bordered with matching raised trim

A surfer storage chest accompanies each set to store the pieces.

And here are the competitors.

The King is the Big Kahuna in Dave's chess set. It's a 7" tall 1940's redwood and pine Hawaiian plank. Just like the board Duke Kahanamoku rode. The Queen is a 6" triple stringer 60's style longboard made in basswood with California redwood stringers. Each queen has a cute hand painted lei draped around her board. Bishops are a sleek 5" Hawaiian koa wood big wave gun.
No horses here. The Knight is 3" Chevy Fleetmaster Woody with 2 surfboards strapped on top. The Rook is what we call the "shabby surf shack", 2" ramshackle little building with surfboards and bodyboards. Pawns are fun little skim boards on a rock pile.

Isn't that the most amazing surf chess set.
