7 High-End Skate & Surfboards For Serious Collectors


You may recall our recent coverage of a particularly flex-worthy skateboard and surfboard from none other than Chanel.

But Chanel isn’t the only brand with high-end boards to gawk in amazement at.

Whether you’re looking to flex on the waves or at your local skate park, or you’re simply looking to blow some cash on an insane collector’s piece, there are plenty of ways to invest in this sphere.

From French erotic illustrator Petites Luxures – who released a limited series of three skateboards featuring the artist’s “The 3 Graces” print, paying homage to Greek goddesses Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite– to Diptych Surfboards, who designed two surfboards with a print of François Boucher’s “The Triumph of Venus” painting from 1740, an even more limited edition of only 10 sets. What’s more, the latter designs are hand-made in France, coming with hooks to hang them on your wall if you’re too scared to scuff a $3,780 board out at sea.
