When it comes to surfboards we generally expect to see a symmetrical design, with some boards going so far as to have perfect symmetry on both the vertical and horizontal planes. This board by Deus Bali, dubbed the Paralesogram, shuns this traditional design ethos in favour of an asymmetrical design.

The Mercedes 300SL is a long time Silodrome favourite, it’s one of the most spectacular cars of all time and so we like to feature it whenever we can.
