Upgrade Your Surfboard and Make Art Out of Your Old One.

Upgrading your surfboard can be an exciting moment.  It is fun to pick out a new board and imagine all the time you'll spend hitting the waves on the surfboard you're about to buy. Sometimes it can be eye-opening to see all the options available in surfboards, as new innovations hit the market every year. 

However, you may struggle to say goodbye to your old surfboard, especially with all the memories you made surfing on your board. Your first surfboard is always particularly difficult to part with, but you might be able to find a way to keep your surfboard around.

You could take a page from artist Fred Streighter and turn your used surfboard into a work of art. He paints incredible landscapes on the boards, because they are long and narrow which makes them perfect for horizontal paintings. You can view his paintings for inspiration in this video posted by in a news segment that featured the artist.

However, you may not want to take on the project if you don't already have some art experience, because the surfboards can be a challenging surface to work with and take a long time to finish. Streighter says each of the boards he paints take him two weeks to finish, and odds are pretty good he's not taking surf breaks into account. If you're willing to take your time, it might be a fun project to commemorate your favorite surfing memories.
