A unique collaboration with three-time world champion Gabriel Medina. The Yow Medina Bengal 33″ is the former Tie Dye redesigned by Israeli artist Or Kantor. The board harmoniously blends aesthetics with functionality, in a design created by Gabriel’s own hand.
This board is designed for powerful wide and deep turns, with a long wheelbase (19″) that provides stability and comfort. These attributes give you better control when executing fast and wide lines. Built with a medium concave that gives you a strong enough grip to prevent your feet from moving.
Overall, mounted with the Meraki system (S5) and Ura wheels (66x51mm) 80a to finish off sufficient grip and control on asphalt in high speed turns.
The Yow Meraki SurfSkate system is the culmination of the last 5 years of research and development. A more simplified and reinforced design alongside Yow’s patented spring system, making it one of the most unique surfskate setups in the world.
Yow has removed the expendable parts of their old system while keeping their patented spring system intact and reinforced the essential parts while making it light and more resistant. In addition, improving the aesthetics as well.
Overall, Yow’s new system is now unified to their very own skate trucks making it more stable without sacrificing the surfing flow Yow is well known for. Take your surfskating to the next level!

As 2022 arrives to an end, we wanted to take a look back and appreciate the moments and events that brought us joy and a lot of stoke. Whilst we celebrate all the travels, the incorporation of Mick Fanning to the team, La Isla, our first Thailand tour, the third edition of our Raw Contest, our first fundriser alongside The Paddle Paddle Surf Project and Madi and a large etcetera, if there’s something we are truly grateful for is our growing community and their incredible support along the years.
