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. Ev­ery good bud­ding surfer artist started their craft draw­ing waves on their school books while they sat bored in maths class dream­ing of the up­com­ing weekend pump­ing waves. The ed­i­tor even carved a wave into the wood on his desk, (naughty naughty) teach­ers never knew who did it, which was a sur­prise con­sid­er­ing he was the only surfer in the school. 13 year old Atawhai Char­teris, how­ever im­pressed with his cap­ture of nat­u­ral form and curves in his sketch of his favourite wave, Whangapoua Point on the Coro­man­del, and Atawhai also kept on the good side of his art teacher sub­mit­ting his art as part of his port­fo­lio for the year. If you have surf re­lated art­work you think will in­spire oth­ers, then 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 sy and cre­ate…
