No Lasers here – hand­made from start to fin­ish. Syd­ney based artist James Robin­son pro­duces some unique pieces of surf art. Hand­shap­ing and build­ing boards and pad­dles from Aus­tralian paulow­nia wood, James adorns each with a one off art­work, which is burnt and etched into the sur­face of the wood us­ing a method called py­rog­ra­phy. These pieces are made to or­der and are hand­shaped, hand­made and hand drawn.

BOUNDBYSEA.COM.AU Wil­liam Fin­negan’s au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal epic tra­verses the ex­cep­tional surf­ing life of an or­di­nary man. From his hal­cyon days at Honolua Bay to pi­o­neer­ing Tavarua and con­quer­ing the un­for­giv­ing big wave beach­breaks of San Fran­cisco, Fin­negan writes en­gag­ingly about lo­ca­tions and char­ac­ters who sold their souls to surf­ing. Most of us can also re­late to sub-plot also, which de­tails Fin­negan’s own strug­gle to jug­gle his wave-lust with more con­ven­tional com­mit­ments like a ca­reer.
