A 3-D-printed ABS skateboard with stock wheels from Chadwick Studio.
Architect and surfer David Hertz's Golden Means Eco-Board, with graphics taken from Le Corbusier’s Modular Man abstracted to represent the sine wave patterning of natural proportions found in the wave form.
From architect and Venice resident Steven Ehrlich, the QBert Redux! skateboard.
This "surfboard" is designed purely in 3-D CAD software, 3-D printed via Selective Laser Sintering by SciCon Technologies in Valencia, California, and assembled at Karten Design in Marina Del Rey, California.
Gensler's Constellation of Fins speaks to the surfing condition on several planes: the physical aspect of how waves address the bathymetry of the Bay, a snapshot of wave-riding cultural hotspots, and the navigational equipment that is defined by them.
