Quiksilver and Sports Illustrated Collaborate on 10 Special Edition Swimsuit Model Surfboards

Shaping a surfboard is an art. Shaping a surfboard with a beautiful woman’s image screen printed on it is, well… epic.
This year for the annual Sports Illustrated Swim Suit Edition, Quiksilver has teamed up with SI to create 10 special edition surfboards. Using their top models, Sports Illustrated’s Alyssa Miller, Anne V, Kate Upton and Irina Shayk just to name a few, were photographed on specially shaped surfboards. Each board was specially hand crafted by different Quiksilver shapers including Michael Baron, Legendary Simon Anderson, Christiaan Bradley, Brett Warner and Mark Phipps.

The Magazine hits stands today and 5 girls including the beautiful Julie Henderson, Anne V, Alyssa Miller, Cintia Dicker and Izabel Goulart grace the pages with their very own Quiksilver surfboard!! Take a look at the stunning photos!

Quiksilver also teamed up with Gilt Group, the online destination for designer duds to auction off select Quiksilver/SI boards for charity where all proceeds will benefit the Nature Conservancy’s beaches and oceans conservation work. Check out Gilt to see how you can own one of these beauties to decorate your home.
