Instead of couch surfing, how about getting wet this summer? French company Trust in design have created the Menhir longboard measuring 9″6′ with an originally designed shape ideal for nose-riding enthusiasts. Along with its unique form comes an integrated, all-over mineral motif which is embroidered directly into the structural textile of the board. The word ‘menhir’ comes from the French word meaning ‘standing stone‘, and the board is reminiscent of old pictures of pioneering riders, standing proudly next to their masterpiece.
