These are purely sculptural pieces that combines recycling, stain glass, surfing and art. They are beautiful and are fairly cheap to produce so if you have no other use for crapped out old short boards then go for it. I have others on my site www.danielnaughton.com

I have included two pieces to show the process . It is a bit of a mission so email me if you have any questions or improvements and no I can't ride them

Step 1: Materials

  • Cutting stage
  • Jigsaw with 100mm blade for composite materials
  • drill with 10mm dia drill for pilot holes
  • electric sander to fix dings if needed and cleaning up
  • disposble dust suit and mask
  • ear muffs/ goggles

  • Resining stage
  • 3L Polyester or Epoxy Resin and appropriate cataylst
  • Resin tint colours
  • Disposable Rubber gloves
  • 6m Clear contact film (book covering stuff)
  • paddle pop sticks
  • 3 x500ml reusable measuring cups
  • old foam mattress
  • 4 house bricks
  • blade
  • syringe
  • Mask suitable for Resin
Imagine doing this to a longboard or skateboard
<p>Hey Christian, I have done it with a snowboard and a mini mal but I try not to cut up boards that can be ridden if possible. Skatey would work really well.</p>
What did you do about the fin boxes/find on the Adrian York board?
Amazing piece of decoration. I'll have to try it once I have a board that I don't need
<p>OMG that is the most beautiful &quot;board&quot; this old surfer has ever seen! </p>
cool as
cool as
<p>GORGEOUS! </p>
<p>Really wonderful work! Thank you for sharing your process, it's neat to see happen!</p>
<p>Gorgeous work! I'd love to win a board like that. I would need to learn how to surf first, but hey!</p>
