    Cheap polystyrene surfboards are discarded in huge numbers. This highlights the problem.

    This article shows one way to use the fabric covers, but disposing of the polystyrene middle is another problem.

    I wonder if they could be utilised as insulation? In a out-building, garage or in a new-build eco-house?

    Would they pose a fire risk? I don’t think I could recommend using them as insulation unless covered by a reliably fireproof layer.

    I know someone who recycles surfboards as pin boards. They’re covered in used coffee bean sacks, trimmed with recycled rope and sold at a profit, I hope. She has also contemplated chopping them up to use as bean bag filling, but you can’t believe the mess that makes!
