Haydenshapes Surfboards and Alexander Wang recently banded together to develop an exclusive installation named #TheCage22. Currently on display at the flagship Alexander Wang store in New York, the installation came out of the idea of creating a luxury surfboard that also acted as a visual art piece for the cage.

Not only did they require the surfboards to look artistic, they wanted to ensure that it maintained authenticity as an innovative surfboard.

The collection includes 5 marble print surfboards created by Wang and Haydenshapes’ founder, Hayden Cox. They were also handmade by Cox in the shape of ‘Hypto Krypto’, which was Australian Surf and Board Sports’ 2014 “Surfboard of the Year.”
