Justin Timberlake starts designing surfboards…
Ummmm… I think I’m going to have to pass on this one. For Summer 2008 Evolution Surf is introducing a unique series of celebrities art designed surfboards to it’s line. For the ’small’ price of $2800.00 to $4500.00, you can get one of their Unique Exclusive Edition surfboards that range in sizes from 5′8″ to 9′2″ shaped by the likes of ‘famed’ surfboard designers that include Cameron Diaz, Shannon Elizabeth, Tyra Banks, Geisele Bundchen, Leonardo Di Carpio, and of course, Justin Timberlake.
While I think it’s pretty clear Evolution is probably not targeting the average surfer with these boards, I still find it pretty comical to have them listed as designers. If you take a look at the boards on their site, it’s fairly evident that these Hollywood A-listers weren’t staying up late every night for weeks on end pouring deep thought into their designs. On the other hand, if they went another route and actually had the particular ‘designer’ hand deliver their boards right to your front door and join you on the initial session this may be something I’m sure many more of us would consider, then again, maybe not.
Here’s a slideshow with the designs.
