Surfboards and Fine Art Meet in New Display

People in the surfing community are often creating interesting and beautiful collaborations and this recent partnership is no exception. Photographer Chris Burkard is known for his nature and surf photography. And when Matt Parker of Album Surfboards found out that Burkard was interested in a collaboration, he was eager to make it happen. Album has been pushing the envelope with their surfboard design for years, including with asymmetrical boards.

In a recent article from The Inertia, author Dylan Heyden explains some of the process. Burkard and Parker chose to use abstract images for the surfboard series. So they picked some of Burkard's breathtaking images of glacial rivers in Iceland taken from thousands of feet in the air. The result is swirling pops of color in blue, gold, and green. In order to get the image on the board, they printed the photographs on fiberglass cloth so the image could wrap around the board. This material gave them that flexibility, as opposed to fabric or rice paper used for imaging on other surfboards with resin inlays.

Parker created two sets of the three boards, each with a different image and valued at $4,500 a piece. One set is on display in Encinitas at the Lux Art Institute from early November through the end of December. The other set will be on display at Burkard's Avila Beach gallery. If you are in the area, check them out!

Different Types Of Surfboard Bags

So, you're going on a trip and you want to bring your board with you and make sure it's protected? We get it, but there are SO MANY OPTIONS! What should you think about when picking your new surfboard bag?

Well, you probably want to consider a few things. How far you're traveling and how many boards you're taking is definitely an issue to consider. Also, make sure to think about your preference for accessories. Do you want pockets for storing other gear in your board bag? What type of visual appearance do you prefer? Do you NEED straps and handles? How about wheels on your surfboard bag for lugging it around the airport or a city?

Surfboard Bags come in all different shapes and sizes.

Board socks offer very limited protection against scratches and dings if you're looking to protect your board when traveling in a car or otherwise. They are ideal for protecting your board against elements in your home, like a pesky cat or dog.

Surfboard day bags are going to offer better protection against elements when traveling in an automobile and are typically used to protect one board. There are some great day bags that are the perfect accessory for day tripping and traveling short distances.

Travel bags are going to offer you the best protection. Quality padding is definitely going to be recommended for air travel, as we all know horror stories about the baggage claim. Some bags have handles and some have bigger handles. Some surfboard travel bags fit more than one board.

These are just a few of the things you're going to want think about before making a decision about which surfboard bag to purchase.

Protecting your investment when it comes to your surfboard should be a no-brainer. You wouldn't travel across the country with your flat screen in the back of your car without making sure that it was protected against damage, and you DEFINITELY don't want to neglect your board.
