Destroyed Deck Displays
Herbie Fletcher Salvages Broken Surfboards in His 'Wrecktangles' Series

By: Gil Haddi (Superstar) Apr 22, 13

Surfing is an action-packed sport that can cause major damage when the waves get out of hand, resulting in broken surfboards washing ashore in an eclectic mix of vibrant beach debris.

Surfboard artist Herbie Fletcher collects the colorful decks and updates them into explosive clusters of art in his installation series entitled ‘Wrecktangles,’ a name which creates a visual for the tangle of damage that his collection embodies. Normally disposed and discarded, these smashed surfboards are now used as a way to share surf culture with the creative art world, taking the combination of contemporary design and active sports in a new direction.

Broken surfboards look fantastic when clustered together in Fletcher’s ‘Wrecktangles’ installation art.
