Original Surfbar Built by DanaToon

It all started in my garage…

One afternoon while sitting in my garage I noticed my roomates old surfboard laying next to a pallet he was going to burn at a bonfire. As I stared at these 2 items I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be cool to lay the surfboard on top of the pallet like a bar?”

Fast forward a couple of years I moved into a new place. I showed my neighbor the original version. He, being a master builder, recognized instantly the faults in my build.

After combining our skills and a few weekends in the garage with some beers we perfected the model to bring you the official PBSURFBAR!
