Watch This Guy Create a Beautiful Surfboard from Scrap Wood

Matt Gahan’s Story Board is a perfect illustration to the belief that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. While most see a wooden pallet like this as bonfire material, Donald Brink sees potential. He see’s the potential to create a unique surf craft that is fun, sustainable, and stimulates his artistic curiosities. Creating your own surfboard like this may seem a bit time-consuming, but let’s face it, surfboards aren’t exactly cheap. Plus, the non-recyclable materials and petrochemicals that are still being used by the majority of surfboard manufacturers today do not jive well with the environment. Not only is Donald Brink trying to undermine this approach to surfboard manufacturing, but he’s also revolutionizing surfboard design with his unique, asymmetrical shapes. So check out Matt Gahan’s latest installment and get inspired to build something of your own.
