New Zealand Surfing - - News -

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. 11 year old Keahn Rish­ton of Pa­pamoa has been surf­ing since he was five and sim­ply loves the sport, in fact his days are spent dream­ing of rid­ing the per­fect wave, and that was his in­spi­ra­tion in the de­sign of his dig­i­tal art ti­tled “Dream Idea” a ma­nip­u­lated im­age of him­self rid­ing his ‘Dream wave’. Keahn has al­ready picked up ac­co­lades for his work mak­ing the fi­nals of the New Zealand MADE awards (movie and dig­i­tal ex­cel­lence) where only six stu­dents from around the coun­try are se­lected, and now he wins the Nixon Art award. Ex­cel­lent work Keahn, let’s hope those dreams be­come re­al­ity soon enough! If you have any art­work you think will in­spire oth­ers that is surf ori­en­tated, 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 and cre­ate…
