Ernest Hemingway, a 1930’s Ford Woodie, a Brownie camera, a Swiss Army knife, a Volkswagen Bus, wingtip shoes, the Beach Boys, a John Deere tractor, a 1950’s juke box, and the Woody surf board. All are timeless classics deeply engraved in American culture of the past century.
For those of us that have had the privilege of being handed down a family heirloom, we can understand the true timelessness of certain items. Whether it be your grandfather’s pocket knife or great grandmother’s china, the item is enduring in its simplicity. We find ourselves drawn to these items as they transport us back to a simpler time.
The double edged sword of owning a classic is that only so many of them are still in existence. While scarcity certainly leads to fun conversations and increased value it also makes it difficult at times to locate or own a classic. Fortunately, we have options. If a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 is outside of your budget, many options exist to own a modern reproduction. The same goes for the classic Woody. Three Brothers boards has captured the spirit and timeless lines of the Woody in their entire line of stand up paddle boards. Not only the look of the Woody has been reproduced, but the classic lines and feel of riding one as well, but with modern improvements. The value of a classic can sometimes limit its use. Unlike an actual Woody, your Three Brothers board can be used regularly without hesitation.
From the very first time you unload your new board from your vehicle, expect to engage in conversations and be complimented. Photographers, car buffs, surfers and virtually every demographic will want to check out your board.
Whether you want short and agile, narrow and fast or large and stable there is a Three Brothers board to meet your riding style. Classics never get old. Enjoy sharing your story of how you found a modern day classic, your grandchildren will thank you for it.
