Surf Ohio inked a deal with Dayton-based Jones’ Rustic Sign for a Longboard Legends Collection wall décor line. The collection will be sold through various beach lifestyle, collegiate and home décor retail outlets.
The deal marks the second of several new products for the Midwest lifestyle brand, which celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2013.
Longboard Legends are branded solid wood, limited edition miniature surfboards inspired by classic longboards from the 1950s and 60s era of the sport. Each style is limited to 100, with finished pieces numbered and personally autographed on the back by Surf Ohio founder and designer Ron Kaplan.
"We’ve heard the call from our fans to create unique and fun wall decor for a while now," says Kaplan. "With gift-giving season upon us, we’re excited to launch the first three collectible Longboard Legends editions now, with more nostalgic designs and styles rolling out with our t-shirts and other products through 2012."
