For the last five years, Thomas Meyerhoffer has been tinkering with a new design for surfboards. The hourglass shape melds the stability of a longboard with the quickness of a shortboard. This makes the ride a little easier on the novice or recreational surfer.

Outside of surfing, Meyerhoffer has developed product for Apple, Porsche, and Sony Ericsson. (via DB).
