All Washed Up

This old wind surfboard was given to me by a friend, who was just off to the recycling centre with it.

When taking a trip to the recycling centre shop you can really get an idea of the huge amount of waste our leisure pursuits create. The shop is full of water sports, golf, and home gym equipment; most of it was barely used before it was considered obsolete.

I have mosaiced the surface of the board in recycled scraps of glass.
