Surf's Up! Decorating with Surfboards

Surf's Up! Decorating with Surfboards

Body boarding couple

Husband and I got in our best ever day of body boarding earlier this month at St. Peter's Harbour Lighthouse Beach in the North Shore of Prince Edward Island. The waves were in the 5ft range and we imagined we looked like these two above ::::wishing:::::. The sesh was so good that the Mr. broke his board. So I popped "body boards" and "boogie boards" into the Google machine to see what's out there. But then I hit Pinterest and the search took a very sharp turn — away from boogie boards, into surf boards and then to interiors. So today I offer this appreciation of the surfboard as decorating. So. Chic.
