Surfing has long been a sport that is strongly linked to fashion. What wet suit you have, where your board shorts are from, the watch you wear, it’s all important. But what is arguably your most important accessory is your board.
Uk based company Total Khanage have taken board design to a whole other level. On a mission to recycle old and broken surf boards, your unwanted pieces of kit can now be turned into bespoke pieces of art.
Founder Kristine Khan said: “It is my aim to stop people throwing these non-biodegradable objects onto dumps and make them into something they would rather hang with pride on their living room walls. It gives me great satisfaction to make these well used bits of plastic into desirable and incredibly beautiful objects.”
Kristine is passionate about the importance of sports, and getting people involved. “I am encouraging people to stop watching television, to keep reading and telling tales. I was brought up in an environment where during the school holidays we had no television. Our favorite nights were when we used to sit by a roaring fire and listen to my Great Uncle talking about ghost stories whilst we ate pancakes and tea.”
And if you’re thinking this is just a few sketches on a broken board, then think again. The fully restored boards are transformed, with detailed, beautiful drawings etched into them, making your board truly unique to you.
