The Marilyn surfboard is the latest design for Tim Bessell's Artist Series surfboards. Inspired by Andy Warhol's iconic 'Marilyn' paintings, the limited edition board comes in a variety of shapes.

Each of these hand-crafted boards are made to order, making them a memorable collector's item. However, one of these boards will set you back about seven grand, so it requires a little bit of thought. It's definitely not an impulse buy, that's for sure!

Take solace in knowing that surfing experience is not necessary to own this vivid, pop art-inspired board. Even if you do surf, you probably won't want to ride any actual waves with this it (did I mention it costs seven grand?), but it will make a beautiful decoration to any home.
