hi-tech surfboards

Saw this on Coolhunting awhile back, about these hi-tech surfboards by Nev Surf. Aside from the über hi-technical performance features, what really got me was the printing of the faux wood and the faux side-of-a-ship-complete-with-pin-up-mermaid motif- apparently these graphics are printed digitally on super touch fabrics that are then vacuum formed and incorporated into the skins of the boards. Also commendable is that they use solvent-less inks, which don't give off harmful odors/vapors-
