Surfing Without A Surfboard Looks Totally Silly

Video: Here’a goofy surf video from Foster Huntington that perfectly edits out the surfboard to make it look like people can surf by wearing special boots. The video itself is funny — and the edited footage is absolutely ridiculous. But man, would it be cool if it were possible. It’s like walking on water if Jesus were a surfer dude.

Making A Hollow Wooden Surfboard Looks Like It's Totally Worth It

Video: The inside of a wooden surfboard looks like the skeleton of a fish. And it only gets more beautiful from there. The entire process of making a surfboard from wood (most surfboards are made from foam and fibreglass) is so fun to see. There is so much carving and shaping and clamping and an obscene amount of glue that you wonder why someone would bother to do this. But the hollow wood surfboard ends up being so beautiful and natural that you see that it’s totally worth it.

Taking A Surfboard Snowboarding Is Just Total Pure Fun

Video: Surfing and snowboarding are similar enough and attract the same people and require some of the same skills that it makes sense that surfers snowboard and snowboarders surf. This video is a combination of those worlds in that Martin Winkler uses a surfboard to snowboard. It’s like riding waves in the ocean, only if the waves were totally frozen.

Getting Hit By A 7-Metre Wave Is Like Being Inside A Water Tornado

What If Apple And Chumby Designed A Surfboard?

Thomas Meyerhoffer used to work at Apple and helped design Chumby. These days, he’s reinventing the classic shape of the surfboard. Looks more like a snowboard, with that midcut radius. Or a spaceship. I like it.

What Happens When a Computer Programmer Decides to Build a Cheap Surfboard?

Not surprisingly, you get the nerdiest surfboard ever. The “Shredder” surfboard was designed by a computer programmer named Mike Sheldrake after he decided to replace his old board. Since he did not possess the skills necessary to make a board the traditional way, he decided to use 3-D modelling software to design a snap-together deck built out of 400 pieces of computer cut corrugated cardboard then shellac it with fiberglass and epoxy resin. Thanks to a mathematically sound triangular pattern, force is evenly dispersed throughout the board—making it incredibly strong.

Collapsible Surfboard Concept Brings Meccano Fun to Water Sports

So, you like surfing, but your apartment and car are not big enough for a full-sized board. What’s the solution, I hear you ask. Sure, you could take up a new sport, or you could get yourself a Collapsible Surfboard. Designed by Nicholas Notara, who wanted to achieve portability without compromising functionality, the frame is made of carbon fiber, and the whole board is taken apart in three easy moves:
