The time has come to drop some exciting news. Earlier this year Reef approached me about creating the artwork for the 2011 Reef Hawaiian Pro event at Haleiwa, Hawaii, part of the infamous Triple Crown of Surfing. The Triple Crown is arguably our sports most respected series of events.
This was a pretty exciting project to work on knowing that the artwork will be plastered all over the event site including giant wraps on all the event scaffolding and towers, on posters, in shop windows and on event apparel like hats and shirts. I'll be flying to Hawaii for part of the event to soak it all in and hopefully pick off a few barrels somewhere on the North Shore. Stoked!
The original was painted on several different pieces of found and salvaged wood. Measurements are around 40"x41". It was created with acrylic paint, markers and colored pencils.
