New Zealand Surfing - - BETWEEN SETS -

As surfers, art is gen­er­ally a big part of our life­style. As groms we drew waves in our home­work books, we find drift­wood shaped like waves on beach walks and shoot pics of our­selves stand­ing un­der rocks and trees that may re­sem­ble waves. You could say our lives are owned by the thrill of surf. So it’s only nat­u­ral that we should re­ward the artist in us all. Nixon has gen­er­ously come up with an amaz­ing time­piece for each is­sue’s fea­tured artist. This is­sue we fea­ture a rather unique piece that we haven’t fea­tured the likes of be­fore. Us­ing a fair amount of ini­tia­tive, cre­ativ­ity and wood­work­ing skill, Bren­tHall

ofWhangapoua con­structed this wall cab­i­net that as it slides open fully en­velops the surfer deep inside the tube. So each time you reach into the cab­i­net to grab your tooth brush or bot­tle of whiskey, de­pend­ing on what takes your fancy, you will get to see this dude, which you can pic­ture to be your­self, get­ting shacked and com­ing out each time you open it. Now that’s in­spir­ing! Send hi-res jpegs of your mas­ter­piece along with your de­tails to

cory@nz­surf­ re­mem­ber to put ‘Nixon Art Comp’ in the sub­ject field.

Get busy and cre­ate…
