“If everybody had an ocean across the U.S.A., then everybody’d be surfin’ like Californi-a,” is how Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys put it. Riding waves has probably been around as long as humans have gone into the ocean. Stand-up wave riding, which we know as surfing, was first seen by Europeans in the Hawaiian Islands in the 1700s. Duke Kahanamoku, “the Big Kahuna,” won a gold medal for swimming in the 1912 Olympics and then toured the world to demonstrate surfing. The world loved it. Surfing has become a nearly $7 billion dollar industry. This fun painting pays tribute to beach culture and some of the best surfing locations in the U.S.A. (check out the boards). Join us for a beach day and ride the wild surf.
