When most people think of Star Wars, summer fun at the beach is not among their first impressions. But living in Southern California, hitting the waves is simply a part of life for us here at GalacticBinder. That led us to the question, "Where do we get a Star Wars themed surfboard?" Two minutes later, this list was born. Don't worry all you cold weather dwellers, we'll deliver the skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling version when Jack Frost returns.
Hang Loose X-Wing Pilot
Hit List: This X-Wing pilot took the opportunity to remind everyone to hang loose.
Hit List: Talk about a species that must know how to escape the heat! Only thing better would be if the Tusken Raider Surfer was using the Tusken Raider surfboard.
(Tusken board image compliments of JP at SurfySurfy.net - check out his Vader board!)
Hit List: Betcha nobody attempts to steal a wave from him!
Hit List: The "Surftrooper" logo has become an iconic image in the Star Wars universe - it's popularity soaring when it began adorning T-shirts.
Return of the Jedi Surfboard
Hit List: This board is really an amazing piece of work - capturing the themes from "Jedi" very well with the inclusion of the Scout Troopers on their speeder bikes and the Ewok Village.
Hit List: Even Scout Troopers and TIE Pilots need a vacation every now and then from hunting Rebel Scum.
A New Hope Surfboard
Hit List: We love old-school Star Wars stuff, and this surfboard homage fits the bill perfectly.
Stormtrooper Crowd Surfing
Hit List: Okay, so this one is cheating a bit. The top image is of a Stormie crowd surfing at Dragon*Con, while the bottom picture is of a Trooper being passed around at a Cincinatti Bengals game. (Bottom photo courtsey of Cincinatti.com)
501st Legion Patches
Hit List: Several groups within the The Star Wars 501st Legion have incorporated a surfing theme into their logos and patches. Check out these from the Pacific Outpost and the San Diego Squad
Hit List: "Surfer Fett" was created by Marco Nero for the Star Wars Insider magazine. Depicting Boba Fett ripping it up on carbonite... this piece is pure fun. Our only quibble is that Boba is cheating using his rocket pack to keep himself up! (Image courtesy of the "Star Wars Insider" magazine)
Vintage Star Wars Surfboard
Hit List: Why's this #1? Because this vintage surfboard was was the epitome of cool before Star Wars itself was cool.
