This exquisite surf equipment certainly will stand out on the great big sea, boasting intricate artwork based on great artists' work from as long as 400 years ago. The '504' series of surf equipment by Boom-art and European surf company 'UWL' are joined this time around by skateboard decks as well that feature huge floral motifs.

The period-themed boards are functional but look like they could be framed in an art gallery, delighting with brightly colored flowers and intricately detailed patterns. The floral artwork is inspired by the Dutch baroque painter Jan Davidsz. de Heem who lived during the 17th century. The other designs are based on the work of the 19th century, Austrian symbolist painter, Gustav Klimt, who is most famous for 'The Kiss'.
