LOCAL artist Tim McGrath has donated three carved surfboards to Busi Women Inc to be presented at the annual Inspirational Conference 2016 in March.

With tribal carvings telling a story, the Yeppoon man said he was excited to present his work to Layne Beachley, guest speaker at the conference.

"I got the idea from another local guy Russell Frew, who taught me how to make the boards," Tim said.

"I've made a few before this one which have been for sale at Millesime Trejor, so they have really looked after me."

The boards will take pride of place at The Strand Hotel bar before each are presented on the night.

President of Busi Women Inc Desley Cowley said one would be presented to Layne Beachley, one to CQUniversity to be displayed at the Yeppoon campus for a minimum of two years, and the other to BWI to auction at the Inspiration Conference.

Layne Beachley will autograph the CQUni and BWI pieces when she arrives on the Friday.
