Cardboard Surfboard glides on ocean water without any damage

Cardboard Surfboard

Normally a surfboard would be made from strong, robust material that is capable of taking on the wrath of nature. But, if I told you that a surfboard made out of cardboard and paper could be strong enough to bear the brunt, then you’ll think I’m insane. In fact, I’m not, as Ernest Packing Solutions working in association with blokes over at Signal Snowboards have come up with a honeycomb like cardboard design for a surfboard that can take on any kind of ocean waves and after a grueling session of riding the waves, sit in your living room.

The surfboard is secured with a thin layer of transparent fiberglass coating and waterproof polyurethane layer which gives it waterproof credentials and structural strength to survive when in contact with water. They have made the honeycomb core of the surfboard so strong that you can sand it yourself, just like any other traditional surfboard. For starters, legendary surf shaper Jeff Doc Lausch (Ernest creative director) and Mike Martinez (Ernest design lab man) gave shape to the surfboard for a smooth ride.

Quite frankly this is an out of the box idea that gives me inspiration to believe that no matter what anything can happen or can be done, it’s just in the mind. For the cardboard surfboard though, I just have one word “cool” and all you DIY’ers can take inspiration from this by making your own cardboard surfboard or any other thing that is simply out of the league, in a good sense of-course.
