My husband and I both surf and were married on the beach. We used a surfboard for a guest book. The guestbook for us did not make a lot of sense, we would never look at it. We decided that the surfboard would hang above our fireplace and we could see the well wishes from our guests everyday. We let our guests draw, write and decorate our surfboard with Sharpie markers in different colors. We love this piece of art in in our house. It is always a conversation piece when people come into our home. Much better than a book hidden away in a box.
