No, you're not seeing things - the blades on the Ellington E-SBF58AN5LKRCR2 Surfboard 58 in. Indoor Ceiling Fan - Antique Nickel really are modeled after surfboards. And they look great, too - the plywood is finished in a rich walnut with two birch-finished stripes running the length of the blade. Add to that the antique nickel finish and the single frosted opal glass shade, and you have a ceiling fan that looks cool while keeping you cool, too. Plus, you'll get both a wall control and a remote with this ceiling fan, and the 100-watt halogen bulb is included, too.
