Making a Surfboard By Hand Seems Satisfying As Hell

I very much enjoyed watching this surfboard get made by hand because, well, I love watching anything get made by hand. But also, there are neat graphics that pop up and show what’s happening at each step of the process. You get to see an animation of what he’s actually doing to the surfboard and what shape he’s trying…

Surfing Without a Surfboard Looks Totally Silly

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…

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

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 fiberglass) is so fun to see. There is so much carving and shaping and clamping and an obscene amount of glue that…

Taking a surfboard snowboarding is just total pure fun

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…

This surfer looks like he's standing on water

Here’s a fun surf video of Tommy Witt surfing on his longboard and pulling fun tricks that make him look like he’s not even surfing but just riding the waves with his own two feet. The board kind of just disappears into the wave and it leaves him looking like he’s just standing there, on top of the water.

Getting hit by a 25-foot wave is like being inside a water tornado Getting hit by a 25-foot wave is like being inside a water tornado

When you get swallowed by the waves of the biggest sea monster in the world (also known as the wonderful ocean), there's not much you can do but protect your head and hope you know which way is up. It's like being trapped inside a water tornado. This footage, captured by pro surfer Mark Healey, shows the exact feeling…

Surfer Shreds Huge Waves With a Jet-Propelled Surfboard Surfer Shreds Huge Waves With a Jet-Propelled Surfboard

Motorized surfboards are nothing new, but typically we just see some yutz puttering around a glassy lake on them. Bo-ring. But today, finally, their potential is being realized. Check out braver-than-you big wave guru Garrett McNamara using a WaveJet to tame some giant, unfriendly waves.

A Surfboard Bag for Dedicated Beach Bums A Surfboard Bag for Dedicated Beach Bums

Camping on the beach with the sound of the surf is a great way to relax, but when you're a surfer, it's also the easiest way to guarantee you won't miss a great wave when the tide rolls in. So the Wave Cave is kind of like an emergency shelter for a situation that's not really an emergency.

Night Surfing With LEDs Is Even Cooler Than It Sounds Night Surfing With LEDs Is Even Cooler Than It Sounds

Surfing is difficult enough during the day when you can actually see the waves (and sharks) coming. To do it at night, you need a big brass pair like professional surfer Aritz Aranburu. And a self-illuminating surfboard doesn't hurt.

Roy Stewart builds longboards fit for—or at least expensive enough for kings. But what in holy heaven could make his Baron surfboard cost $528,000?

San Diego-based artist Rich Morrison has taken the old adage "one man's trash is another man's treasure" and applied it to this recycled beer can surfboard.

Hailed as the inventor of the modern longboard, Bill Stewart's created the one-of-a-kind Night Stalker, which has headlights and LED-embedded side fins making it safe for night-surfing. Just imagine what a shark in headlights looks like, though. Shudder.

What if Apple and Chumby Designed a Surfboard? 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.

Surfboard USB Drives Surfboard USB Drives

Surf's up, dude, even if you live in the Midwest. Wal-Mart, of all places, has these gnarly 1GB USB 2.0 flash drives in four radical styles for around $33. You gotta love the design on these things. Nice. Even I like them, even though, as you know, Charlie don't surf.
