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

Posted by

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 that guy I married chilling at a bar made from a surfboard in a friend’s backyard.

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

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.

  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.
