Foam Dancing

Recently I was invited to contribute some drawings to Kurungabaa, a journal on all things surf. This is what I came up with.

In the process of creating this sketch I realised that more and more, my drawings have become a sort of running commentary on my surfing. This one is no exception. I predominantly ride longboards, and one of the things I love about riding them is that it gives you the opportunity to move around on the board. Almost like dancing on the foam beneath your feet.

Recently I acquired a beautiful 6'6" Valla single fin. Taking it out reminds me of the feeling of first learning to surf, when everything is new, and the only foam you dance on is that of the broken wave. So this drawing is a celebration of both types of foam dancing.

Check out Kurungabaa online, or hold out until the printed edition is out. I for one am looking forward to reading my copy.
