The Broken Skateboard Surfboard: Björn Holm

Finnish designer Björn Holm has been collecting broken skateboards since 2011 from friends, relatives, and fellow skaters in his community. Much like 1000 Surfboard Graveyard, Holm realised that:

'Skateboards are sweet, its just as simple as that. Most people throw them away after they snap. Thousands of boards being used as landfill all over the world, and that´s a shame with this great material inside these boards. Don't throw those boards away, keep them and make something beautiful!'Björn Holm

Holm's creation is a colourful, 100% recycled 6'4" fish surfboard made from nothing but broken/old skateboards. He called the project RETO - REcycle for TOmorrow - see the video for the full story.

Cardboard Surfboard: Hand-made By Scott Mac Donough

You may know of the cardboard surfboard kits made by Mike Sheldrake (if not, click HERE NOW). It's not exactly the first material one tends to associate with surfboard construction. Scott Mac Donough has created another innovative cardboard surfboard variation. It may need some fine tuning - but bring on 'The Cardboard'!
