About Our Coastal Beach House Surfboard Decor and Furniture
Coastal beach house decor is what Tiki Soulis all about. Our decorative surfboard art comes in three sizes, 4 foot, 5 foot, and 6ft (all are 3/4″ thick). All surfboards are available in either a Classic Longboard shape (round nose) or a Shreddin’ Shortboard shape (pointy nose). They make awesome accents to bedrooms, bathrooms, tiki bars, patios, restaurants, weddings, and really anywhere you want a Hawaiian, Beach, Coastal beach house decor or Surf decor.
WE USE REAL SURFBOARD DIMENSIONS
Our coastal beach house decor surfboards are shaped using the same dimensions from two of our favorite surfboard companies, cut very close to scale, keeping realistic shapes at any size. We want our surfboard shapes to look like the real thing. You can’t have a 5 foot surfboard only measure 11 or so inches wide. That would be more like a ski than a surfboard. Please keep in mind that although our shapes are in proportion, they do have a flat back that allows for easy hanging on the wall. They have no rocker.
WE ONLY USE THE HIGHEST QUALITY MATERIALS IN OUR COASTAL BEACH HOUSE DECOR
Here at Tiki Soul you pay for quality materials. Surfboard made of 100% solid wood (no plywood of any kind used). We use either Bass or Cypress Wood select grade (little to no knots or imperfections) Using solid wood involves much more labor so prices are higher than those who are just cutting surfboard shapes from sheets of plywood. Our solid wood surfboard are also great for use outdoors and will always have the most beautiful solid wood edges.
NATURAL WOOD CHARACTERISTICS
Please note that due to differences in natural wood tones, stains on natural wood will have different tones and hues and may not match pictures seen here. Wood grain and density varies from board to board. We refuse to use cheap materials and our final product is just proof that quality in means quality out. With wood hand picked per design created.
AIRBRUSHING, HAND PAINTING AND STAINING
We use a combination of airbrushing, staining and hand painting. Hand painted work will be specified when used. We also use high quality, automotive vinyl pin-striping. This assures the most crisp and clean lines. Custom work is our specialty and we can create a piece for just about any occasion. We can match colors (must supply color specifics for 100% match), add your text and photos to any of our designs our create a custom design just for you. We do offer a mock-up service as well so you can see your design before it goes into production. Contact us with your ideas.
PROFESSIONAL NON TOXIC EPOXY CLEAR COAT FINISH
After your decorative surfboard art is painted and or stained it will receive a commercial grade epoxy clear coat, much like the finishes you will see on restaurant tables and bar tops. This gives our surfboards that beautiful glass like finish. Our epoxy finishes are equivalent to over 60 coats of regular varnish or spar urethane. It also contains a special UV protectant that retards it from yellowing, so your surf art will look awesome inside or outside. This epoxy finish gives off no toxic fumes unlike surfboards that are varnished, it is odor free. Small imperfections in paint or finish may occur. Small imperfections can not be avoided 100% due to the nature of epoxy. These imperfections will in no way ruin the quality. We will not ship surfboards with large or unsightly issues, We will never ship an item we wouldn't hang in our our home.
BACK OF OUR COASTAL BEACH HOUSE DECOR SURFBOARDS
The back of our surfboards also receive a thin layer of wood sealer to protect it from the elements. This is very important for your surfboards longevity. Again a lot of others skip this step to save on cost, yet still charge top dollar. Backs of surfboards may have imperfection such as sanding marks, paint or tape residue, epoxy prints or other small imperfections. Our focus is on the surfboards finish on the art side not the back.
HANGING HARDWARE INCLUDED
All our surfboards come with hardware for the back of the surfboard so they can be installed into the back of the surfboard very easily allowing you to hang your surfboard at an angle. Hanging our surfboards is much like hanging a large picture frame. You do have to supply the wall anchor for your type wall. We only supply the hardware that attaches to the surfboard back
