34 Surfing Innovations

From Canine Surftography to Supercar Surfboards

— February 20, 2010 — Lifestyle
Living in California, but not surfing, I am forced to feel jealousy and envy every time I stroll the beach and see some epic surfing innovations. I mean seriously, dogs can surf, and I can't.

These surfing innovations only heighten my hatred for my inability to shred the gnar. A boy can always dream though, and with innovations like shark surfing and upside down surfing, my dreams just got a little more far fetched.
