When you buy handmade gear, there's shopping local, and then there's shopping local — Octovo x Tilley Surfboards fall squarely into the latter camp. Individually crafted by hand in his Port Orford, Oregon shop from locally-sourced Cedar native to the region, these boards are made with rugged pacific coasts and cold water in mind. With five designs in total, the surfboards feature original graphics and paint schemes to set them apart from every other board out there. And each one comes with a custom carrying bag complete with shock-resistant padding, waterproof materials, leather covers and handles, titanium hardware, and padded shoulder straps.
When they say limited edition, they mean it. The ArcticSilver Titanium Free-Flex Rod is limited to just 2-5 rods per classification — or under 20 total worldwide — making them some of the most exclusive gear around. Features include pure titanium stripper and snake guides, a carbon-fiber based handle, a Quick-Lock reel seat, and, of course, the Free-Flex system that allows the blank to move freely within the handle, resulting in superior feel and longer casts with less effort.
