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
