Gary Linden is building surfboards with DuPont™ Kevlar® to help big wave surfers stay safe. When riding big waves around the world at places like Mavericks, The Wedge, Peahi/Jaws and Todos Los Santos, surfers like Nic Lamb depend on Gary Linden’s craftsmanship and the protection offered by surfboards reinforced with Kevlar®. Kevlar® surfboards are light weight at no sacrifice to performance. They’re also durable, which is essential in case of a wipe out, where the board acts as a life support in up to 100 foot waves. In the event the board does break, a surfboard made with Kevlar® helps the sharp broken edges together, protecting the surfer from injury.
