1000SG has had some great media attention in the last week!
These sites have many great design ideas and articles posted on them - well worth looking at!

I remember being really young when my budgee died, I was so devo I cried. I think a shoebox was used as a coffin which sounds pretty povo looking back on it... anyway!
I found this board half had been used an actual headstone for a pet bunny - R.I.P Snuffy

Artist: Anthony Pelto
Inspired by connection between the land and the sea, Pelto has given the outback a new and unique perspective by taking 30 surfboards, covering them in cowhide and photographing them in the Red Centre of Australia, including Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon.
The ability of creativity to make old things unique - awesome work!

Alan, 94, walked every street in 287 suburbs of Sydney, Australia
This is only 1 of his 2400 bizarre photos that document his 'surprises' or interesting sights of art and design as he strolled nonstop around Sydney.
He has received so much media attention its not funny... Check it:
Walk Sydney Streets
Back to the point, a potential 'up-cycle' for broken boards that's for sure!

Surfboard / Bodyboard?
I called upon my local boardriders (Jones Beach) to bring in any of their old boards. Glen brought in this homemade crossbred mongrel that his son Corey made between an old foam finned bodyboard and a shortboard. I took it for a spin... it's meant to be ridden like a bodyboard for just pulling into shorey's
I thought the cables tied fins was pretty damn clever.
