I’m lucky that the 8-foot surfboard that makes its home in my 240-square-foot Brooklyn apartment (when it’s not taking the A train to Rockaway) is actually kind of cute. If you can ignore the dirty wax with bits of sand embedded in it and focus on the blue-green edges, you might even notice that it matches the color scheme of the rest of the room (See DIY: The Magical Power of Cherry Blossoms for a peek). Still, when I saw these canvas surfboard bags from Chapman at Sea, I was seriously tempted to place an order.
Above: Made from leather and canvas, the covers are as functional as they are nice to look at. The Sailor comes in storm/khaki and natural/khaki color combinations in sizes meant for short boards, $139.
Above: Nautical rope and leather cinches make for a handsome enclosure.
Above: The Scout is a round-top version meant for classic longboards; $149.
