When surfboards have ceased to be useful on the waves, Claire Marie, an artist in Western Australia, gives them new life. She reinvigorates the boards with vibrant seascapes harkening to past adventures on the water.

Marie explained to My Modern Met that each painting is personalized to the past of the board:
“It’s the small details in the artwork that makes each commissioned surfboard unique and personal but the surfboard itself also holds its own memories from the time it has spent out in the waves,” she continues. “On the back of each board is a small handwritten note which gives a little insight into the story of the board and the artwork.”
