    Beautiful Woman Surfing

    beautiful-woman-surfing-2 The next wallpaper is of a beautiful women surfing. In the background, she is on her surfboard, under the water. It is a really cool shot of her surfing. Men will probably prefer this wallpaper over women, but it would go great on any desktop. However, the desktop icons may be a bit difficult to see at the top of the wallpaper where the waves are. You will probably have to rearrange them if you decide to use it.

    Vector Wallpaper

    surfing-vector-wallpaper-3 The next wallpaper in our set of free surfing wallpaper is the vector surfing background. This wallpaper was created in a vector software program. In this wallpaper there are palm trees with a surfer standing under the trees. The surfer has his board in his hand. You can also see the ocean, sky and birds in this wallpaper. To top it off, the designer has added some beautiful flowers to the bottom right corner of the wallpaper.

    Abstract Wallpaper

    abstract-surfing-wallpaper-4 The next wallpaper is also a vector wallpaper, but with an abstract twist. If you are a fan of abstract images, you will probably like this particular wallpaper. It is beautifully designed with a surfer, waves, palm trees, swirls and other decorations. This would be a good wallpaper if you have a lot of icons on your desktop because you could rearrange them in the bottom left corner of the wallpaper and you could easily see them.

    Quicksilver Wallpaper

    quicksilver-wallpaper-5 Our next wallpaper is a Quicksilver. If you are a surfer, you know that Quicksilver is a very popular brand among surfers. In this wallpaper is a surfer riding quite a large wave. Also on the wallpaper is the Quicksilver logo and other text. This is a nice background, but if you have a ton of desktop icons, you will probably need to clean your desktop up and rearrange your icons that are left in places where you can see them.

    Firefox Surfboards Wallpaper

    firefox-surfboards-6 This is the Firefox surfboards wallpaper. This background is really cool. In the background of it, you can see the beautiful ocean with the waves and the blue sky. Then you will see the four surfboards stuck in the sand. The four surfboards have the Firefox logo spread across them, so if you are a Firefox fan and love surfing, this would be your wallpaper. Who would have ever thought Firefox and surfing would go hand-in-hand.
