The Beer Can Surfboard, by San Diego artist Rich Morrison is one of the coolest upcycling project we have seen in a while. A functional surfboard coated in an epoxy resin and containing 72 beer cans — including Boddington’s Pub Ale, Budweiser, Modelo, PBR, and Rolling Rock — this surfboard began as an art project to complement Morrison’s Enviro Surf Art Series, but turned into the real deal ready to hit the waves.
Morrison collected the 72 beer cans from a local bar and turned them into a board with the help of surfboard maker Gary Seagraves. Morrison’s board is a 6’2″ rocket fish design with twin fins and a swallow tail, and we’re betting with one ride, you’ll be screaming “Hang ten!” at the top of your lungs!
