Surfboard Art & Carvings

Surfboard Carving

One of the most valuable and sought after works of art on the Hawaiian islands. You're not just investing in a work of art. You're curating stories. South Sea Arts only uses surfboards that have been abandoned along the fabled seven mile miracle of the North Shore Oahu, boards that have washed ashore, battered by the tumultuous pacific sea. What is of no longer of use to the wave riding Hawaiians of this side of the island is reborn as treasure in our studio.

The surfboard's patina, with all the hard-earned dings, dents, bumps, bruises and surf rust, is preserved and honored. Those are the details that keep the surfboards stories alive. Gecko expertly carves into the foam revealing the rest of the story hidden in other areas. Its like a collaboration that was never anticipated with the original shaper who gave it birth. From there, the board's history and continuing life unfolds.

Hundreds of hours go into each creation, with the artist working tirelessly until the board tells him when it's done. No story is ever the same. No board is ever the same. And if the board calls to you, it is meant to be in your home, and your home alone.
