Yater/Ancell Abalone Board
In the mid '00s, surfer and artist, Kevin Ancell began working with surfboard shaper Renny Yater on collectible surfboards, with Ancell designing intricate abalone and mother of pearl inlays. This one, featured along with several other collaboration boards between Kevin and Renny, will be on display at SHACC as part of our "Yater" exhibit, which opens Saturday, November 7 and runs through January 2016. The board also has an abalone painted by Kevin on the deck and bottom, showing the two sides of the shell. This board is a tribute to one of Renny and Kevin's favorite breaks, Rincon, California, the "Queen of the Coast."
