french designer thomas de lussac has revolutionized the world of amateur surfing with his inflatable surfboard. accessible, convenient, innovative and useful, the ‘surf air’ board is ideal for amateur surfers aspiring to become the future kings of the big waves. the three-dimensional fabric used to construct each board is double-coated with PVC, providing a remarkable rigidity. the ‘surf air’ inflates in 2 minutes and becomes as solid and stable as a conventional surfboard. once rolled back together, it is easily transportable and can easily fit inside a small gym bag.

surf air‘ comes with a pump, a backpack, a repair kit and a ‘surfair’ t-shirt. dimensions: circa 210 x 55 x 7 cm / weight: 4,8kg

thomas de lussac: surf air inflatable surfboards the designer talks with a surfer about the board

  • woah. every surf shaper just cringed. good for family ‘learn to surf’ getaways but thats about it. fun item based on a surfboard but in reality, lightyears from it. Much like a snow ski, the rail is too crucial to surfboard design for it to ever lend itself to an inflatable construction.

  • I want one…one of those surf boards would be good to!
