My wife had been looking for a surfboard wall mount for a nine months. We aren't very discriminating and we are not cut out for being conspicuous consumers (we're pretty frugal and unwanting), but we couldn't bring ourselves to purchase just any old surfboard mount.
The particular board to be hung was deeply meaningful to my wife's family (read the related Surfy Surfy post here). The mounts that she found in the surfshops and on-line would not have done justice to the intimate craftsmanship and symbolism of the board her dad had shaped before he died.
The perfect mounts were in Leucadia the whole time. Right next to Caldwell's antiques...
...is Bamboo 2 U & Tiki's Too.
After all the years of Tommy Bahama's sales we had never been inside Bamboo 2 U. Had we gone in we would have know to check out their stock much earlier. They have tons of really interesting stuff for all sorts functions.
No surprise, there's lots of tropical style & surf art and furnishings. They also have an online catalog of tiki's and bamboo furniture.
They still have a set of tiki surfboard wall mounts for sale.
We grabbed the palm tree set for the balsa board.
Leucadia has some cool little shops.
