Up-Cycled Surfboard

What do you do with old thrusters that have seen better days?

This was a 6'3 NEV gifted to me by a good friend when I had snapped my last board and couldn't afford a new one. Probably a great board in its time, but after more than a decade of heavy use the tail had collapsed and the insanely curvy nose had sustained a few nicks and dings over the years.

I had a spare hour or two while waiting for the next load of timber to arrive so armed with some offcuts, resin, saw and sand paper I went to work to reinvigorate this old board and maybe give it a new lease on life.

Stay tuned for a ride report!
