Having moved to the land girt by sea last January and set myself up on the Central Coast I felt the new extension I built needed something special.

Inspiration hit me at the beach, literally. A guy came out of the water with a bust surfboard with the light shining through a hole in it; so I should have been looking where I was going But that was the moment – I was going to hang a surfboard from the ceiling!

Step 1: Getting the board

Gumtree.com sorted me with a $20 board, ancient and repainted many times. Some fine sandpaper revealed an awesome board underneath albeit somewhat bashed. I liked the Approach logo so decided to keep it in the final design.
