Gotta love when a surfboard shows some sings of actually having been used; so sick of seeing unwaxed boards propping as bedroom decorations. It’s a plank, get over it, or wax that puppy up and get to shredding, in the ocean. Don’t front.
My boards usually have six to ten months of crusty, nasty wax build up, so much so that they mostly live in the garage and definitely don’t make it into photos that often. So yeah, if you actually surf a lot, your boards end up looking like shit, and you’d rarely bother photographing such purely functional objects.
This little scene gives some indication that the kid actually shreds, but I’m still inclined to believe that taking photos of surfboards in ‘designy’ settings is straight kook behaviour.
