Where Old Surfboards Go.... by Randy Jay Braun


Available to buy on…

Here on Maui, we have a neighbor who decided to build a fence out of old surfboards. Well, now there are 600+ surfboards surrounding the property and the number grows daily as folks simply deposit their old hardware onto the property without giving it a second thought.

I took this from the road using my Fujifilm 6×17 film camera (for sale now!)

This fence has recently made international news and is a “Mecca” for all tourists to photograph.

    Great shot, again!!! How cool a new fencing concept!! Brilliant colour and capture!!!
    Now on a personal note, go and hibernate or find some other creative outlet !!! Stop taking great photos of this amazing island!!!
    I was in Hawaii in 2000 last time, our Aussie dollar then dived to 52cents American. We had McDonald’s on installment’s, but its not looking any better now!!!

    Surf boards do make great looking fences and add a very cool feeling to a home.

    Great color! The title fits perfectly with the subject and concept. The boards could be viewed as tombstones as well. Wonderful and mahalo:)
