OCEAN Painting Surfing

OCEAN Painting Surfing

Originally created as part of Next Wave Festival, Surfing Painting is back in all of its outrageous glory. An adventure with Henry Jock Walk who will teach you how to paint whilst surfing. Yes, it is painting while surfing. Using paint on paper while moving across a wave. Exploring the possibilities of surfing, performance and painting through collaboration, and socially inclusive events. All levels of surfing are welcome.

How to paint while surfing:

One of Walker’s more obscure forms of art are his surfing paintings.

With a tube of paint in the arm of his wetsuit and a canvass in his mouth, he paddles out on a surfboard to prepare for his bizarre form of painting.

“I just stand up and squirt the paint, and the challenge is to get the paint to the shore without losing it,” he said.

“I’ve always been interested in surfing, but I didn’t like the idea of making paintings of waves, so the contrast of the two things is making paintings while I’m surfing. (Courtesy of ABC)

Max 16 people per session. Be prepared to get notified re location pending the surf report. Painting starts at dawn.
