Surfboards do more than just float: how to use surfboards as home decor

I love this surfboard fence on Maui. Every time I drive by it, it makes me smile. It made me wonder… what other awesome things can surfboards do at home that would make me smile? So I scoured my friends' houses and Pinterest, and found some awesome ideas. Fences, showers, coat racks… here are some ways to repurpose your unused or broken surfboards.

Here's another example of a surfboard bar, this time with a gorgeous wooden board.

This barely used surfboard is being made much more useful as an added storage space in my neighbor's apartment.

I love the idea of turning an old (maybe broken?) surfboard into an outdoor shower.

And I'm spent. What other ways can you repurpose your old surfboards into your home decor? Headboards? Coffee tables? What else?

  1. This is an awesome post! My Husband and I Surf and live in a tiny apartment so we hung out boards on the wall as art. This way they are up and out of the way, and not taking up floor space while filling our bare walls.

    • See, that's brilliant! You save money on wall art. And when they're taken down, you're not in your home to see blank walls anyway!

  2. There's a little town just south of Adelaide in South Australia called Middleton, that's well know for it's surf, and there's all sorts of surf-board art all around the town. park benches and bench-seats at picnic tables. The bakery there has an outdoor seating area where all the walls are covered in broken boards.
