Hang Ten


I'm not a longboarder, but I've always been blown away by the amount of grace good log riders have when they surf. It's not about the size of the wave. It's not about being aggro. It's all about style and making it look easy. I tried to capture economy of movement in this drawing by only using a few lines.

Park the recliner on the nose and hang those piggies over.

Is it a longboarder falling down?

Very Zen. Don't expect to be hanging ten tomorrow- looks like its still going to be big.

I love your drawing.
Looks a bit like a japanese ideogram.
Close to abstraction.
I use it as an avatar on a surf-related forum: I hope you don't mind... ;)

That's fine - if anyone asks, tell them you got it from me!

Don't worry, I tell every surfer I know and appreciate about your blog... ;)
