It seems to me that the surfing fraternity is pretty evenly split down the middle – those who surf for work, and those who surf for play. And I don't just mean those who are paid and those who aren't, but the difference in attitudes – the surfers who get really competitive and take each session very seriously, and those who just go out and have a good time (I like to think I'm among the latter).
SurfAid is having its annual 'Surfing Suits' fundraising bash next week. They asked some artists to paint on surfboards which will be auctioned off at the event. I thought the whole idea of surfing equating to either work or play (or even both) fit their theme pretty well, so that's what I did (original pen drawings above, and evidence of their translation onto the board over several hours with poscas and paint below).
