Grain Surfboards and Glenmorangie have partnered to create surfboards made from what were once whisky casks. Each surfboard uses wood from 12 Glenmorangie oak staves, as well as Grain’s signature material, Maine-grown northern white cedar and reclaimed western red cedar, reports Luxury Launches. 

“People often ask us what happens to those casks after their whisky-making life is over,” said Dr Bill Lumsden, director of distilling, whisky creation and whisky stocks at Glenmorangie, according to Luxury Launches. “Beyond the Cask is our way of working with people who share our creative vision, passion and patience, to take this wood on another step in its journey.”

The boards are also “bookmatched” to ensure continuity of the pattern of the grain. You can get one for yourself for just $5,500.
