Flat Island Boat Works, is often called upon to create custom structures for non-boating clientele. A request for the perfect Beachside Table design for Margaritaville’s poolside bar, sparked Mike Bredesen’s surfing origins and the idea to use actual Longboard surfboards as the surface for multiple tables. The curved classic Longboards were excellent visuals for the seaside environment…yet presented hardships in that there is no flat surface anywhere on the foam and glass boards. Mikes’ solution was a crafted frame system of natural wood, scribed to the multiple angles of each surfboard. Having no flat surface to place a glass or plate…Mike’s idea was to create a custom paper dam on the top of each Classic Longboard. Raw glass was then poured into the moulds, requiring extreme care in balancing the surfaces and curing the thick glass. Photos show the final Longboard Tables in place near Pensacola’s top surf break in front of Margaritaville, Pensacola Beach…where they are enjoyed by thousands of visiting beach goers each season.
