Once you’ve got yourself the biggest/coolest/newest/fastest superyacht in town, you’ll want to kit-out the toy chest with suitably stylish accessories to match.  We’ve taken a look at some of the most bling-tastic surfboards on the market and picked out our favourites…

Linley ‘Fistral’
£30,000
Designed by artist Emma Wood for this iconic English brand, the Linley ‘Fistral’ surfboard is named after the famous Cornish beach that’s a hot spot of surfing activity for international pros and newbies alike.

Made out of paulownia wood with stainless-steel inlay, the Fistral features a unique hollow skin and frame made out of sustainably sourced balsa wood.  A 70’s inspired marquetry motif incorporates a combination of natural and dyed veneers including American walnut, ripple sycamore, fumed figured eucalyptus, dyed American tulip and birdseye maple.

Hermès ‘Le Sur-Mesure’
$10,170
The ‘Secret Special Projects’ division of Hermès is known for delivering an array of indulgently bespoke items and now the wonderfully creative design team have turned their attention to the faithful surfboard.  The Le Sur-Mesure surfboard features Hermès’ Savana Danse motif with a leopard and monkey illustration.

Shaped for stability and agility with two wooden fins in reinforced maple veneer, the board itself is also covered with a maple veneer enrobed by glass fibre, with the top and underside glazed with resin.

The board comes with its own scent developed by Christine Nagel, the Creative Director of Hermès perfumes, and hints of juniper and pear have been infused into the wax.

Tesla
$12,000

If you’re pairing your surfboard with your yacht, why not add your car into the equation as well?  The Tesla design studio launched the limited edition Tesla surfboard in collaboration with Lost Surfboards and Matt ‘Mayhem’ Biolos.
Sleek and lightweight, the surfboard is constructed with ‘Black Dart’ carbon fibre and designed to fit in three of the Tesla vehicles.  The boards are available in matte and gloss finishes – the same used on Tesla cars.

These boards sold out on day one and with only 200 produced, they are now valued at $12,000 per board.
