For 25 years shaper Gary Linden envisioned crafting a surfboard completely from sustainable materials. It wasn't until he visited Jose Cuervo's agave fields in Mexico and talked with local jimadors and scientists that he was able to manifest his vision. Gary succeeded in creating a functional watercraft that no other shaper had before - a 100% agave surfboard.
A road trip deep into Mexico is a time-honored tradition for surfers who are lured by the promise of adventure, warm water, and perfect waves. But this trip also took a detour off the beaten path to explore the roots of tequila. This 30 spot launched the #fundayanyday campaign.
