We would like to thank you for visiting our website, as we are starting
something that we hope, will give back to our earth as it gives us so much.
Our idea is simple; find used, old, broken and discarded surfboards and manufacturing pieces which are on their way to the landfill and make art out of them.
It all started with a small shop in Cocoa Beach, Florida called Cocoa
Beach Surf & Skate. We were getting a lot of surfboards brought in
that were not fixable or people were dropping them off with us for lack
of a better place to abandon them. To us, old boards are cool, they have a history, someone rode waves with these surfboards, some have been around the world riding huge surf, how many barrels or off the lips have these surfboards seen? We
would just hold on to them, since repair was to much to even break even at the surf shop with a repair, so some people would buy them for their
back patios, restaurant, tiki bar etc? which was fine, it would keep another surfboard
out of the landfill and made us feel like we were making a difference.
One day we were talking with an artist friend of ours, bouncing
around ideas of what to do with these old surfboards. Chuck had a good
one so he took the board. Well, when he brought it back and we were
BLOWN AWAY. He took an old surfboard that was headed for the
landfill and made it look brand new with some amazing art! The Recycled
Surfboard Art Program was started that day.
