surf art, and why it should be avoided
How can this be right?
This poster is available online for about $30 US and purports to be a reasonably accurate representation of how ‘ The Surfer ‘ parks his car at the beach, in Hawaii.. !
Bear with me here as we take a closer look at at (1) The steering arrangements – I see no wheel. (2) The carrying arrangements – I see no racks. (3) The surfing arrangements – I see no surf.
I also regard it as offensive that the artist has generally inferred that all that a surfer can afford is a rusted hulk with doors that don’t close – Given my experience any car parked on the sand in Hawaii these days is more likely to be a Lexus LX RX SUV with darkened windows and a couple of local lads on close watch nearby.
The boards. The Boards .. words near fail me here and this instance. Look at the boards if you will, in particular the one on the roof wax up. The one on the roof wax up with the all new skeg arrangements – This is insulting, if I had a phone I’d call a lawyer.
Now look at the other board, the blue one, the blue board with what looks like a half coat of wax on the Port side. Maybe the surfer who owns it has one leg.
The towel draped over the back of the board, the one shielding the Wahini from the rays .. that is a babe back there there isn’t it?
Lastly I would call your attention to the item on the sand by the rear wheel, this looks suspiciously like a mobile defibrillator kit, a key item in any surfer’s handbag prior to an attempt at Hawaii’s giant surf –
At least he got that right.
