Luke Okay Board Art

April 21st, 2010 by John Zanussi

  In the past we’ve all taken a board of ours out back with a few cans of spray paint and maybe some masking tape and tried to come up with a radical design on the deck. Well if you’re like me and have very minimal artistic abilities, it can be super hard to come up with something that looks good enough to show off to the whole lineup, unless your name is Luke Okay.

Recycled bamboo surfboard

November 12th, 2009 by John Zanussi

  If you’re into the retro do-it-yourself style boards then this masterpiece is for you. This is the second custom board Tom Murphy has built himself and apparently he’s learned it all from reading up on the Tree to Sea forums. He came upon some old bamboo floorboards from an office building and took it from there. Taking up a total of 8 months, Tom spent a lot of time doing things right by reading other peoples experiences and asking for advice on the the forums. After it all it looks like he ended up with a sick looking homemade board. More info and pics on the board after the jump. More »

Surfboard Tracking System

October 28th, 2009 by John Zanussi

  I’ve never had any of my boards stolen but I do know of people who have gotten their sticks robbed right from their front lawn. This actually happens a lot, but there is somewhat of a solution brewing out there. A company called SBT has created a way to store all sorts of info electronically in your surfboard. A very small microchip is placed in the foam of a board before it is glassed that will hold information about the shaper, the type of blank, dimensions, fin system, the date the board was made on, etc. The board can then be registered on SBT’s website as your own… kind of like those chips they place in pets these days. You can’t track your board GPS style but it’s better than nothing. More »
