I’d had this design in my head for years. Then, multiple doodles on napkins and in my sketchpad. Finally, it came to fruition.

This piece is not glassed, as it would be challenging to actually surf. Instead of fiberglass and resin, I used a clear satin finish to bring out the natural beauty of the light maple, redwood, poplar, alder, and spanish cedar.

Special thanks to my friend, and fellow surf artist, Norm Daniels for cheering me on.

Additional thanks to Jim Perry for naming this piece.

And, YES, the gears do work!
