Put a Cork in It! :: Wine Cork Surfboards

by Nannette Eaton on July 21, 2014

Wine Harlots love wine, but we are also enchanted by the creativity and ingenuity of artisans who use the waste products of wine — corks and bottles — and then reimagine and craft them into purposeful, beautiful and useful items.

RichPeopleThings, a social enterprise located in the Murcia wine region in Spain, has created stunning surfboards constructed out of used wine corks. Due to the custom, hand-crafted nature of the work, the surfboards aren’t cheap. The cost of the boards begin at $2043 (1500€) for a bodyboard and range up to $9533 (7000€) for a 10’ longboard. (Prices are in Euros, the conversion rate at the time of publication was 1€ = $1.36.)
