San Diego area artist Gary Seavgraves devised this burly rocket fish surfboard from 72 beer cans, some foam, and copious amounts of fiberglass resin. Originally intended as sculpture, the board may well be the first fully functioning surfboard made from recycled beer cans. [via GeekyGadgets]

     Wow…a surfboard made of beer cans sounds well believable but is it safe enough? Turns out, it is safe enough and hell yeah! thats another reason why we need to keep drinking beer because now even surfboards are beginning to be made of beer cans! Kudos people to your imagination!
