Tim Bessell x Andy Warhol Surfboards

Rebecca Sun, Socialite
On the hunt for a new surfboard that can also double as artwork? The Andy Warhol Foundation has joined forces again with Tim Bessell Surfboards on a new range of boards featuring the artists iconic portrait of Marilyn Monroe. The limited edition collection features five colorways of the board, with only 12 of each being produced and selling for $7,000.

This isn't the first collaboration--Tim Bessell first formed a partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation in 2012 and has shaped a number of boards featuring the artists work since. Interestingly enough, Bessell and Warhol lived near each other in La Jolla during the 60s and even met in person at the Playboy Club in Manhattan, NY. Read more about that from Bessell himself on the Inertia Blog here.
