Reef Hawaiian Pro 2012 artwork
Reef have followed up last years’ awesome Reef Hawaiian Pro artwork by Erik Abel with another great surf art poster, this year by another Californian artist: Alex Weinstein.
Reef wrote: "Weinstein is best known for his emotive paintings and sculptures in which he intimately explores the ever-changing mood of the ocean environment. A lifelong and avid surfer, the work speaks directly to the immersive experience of time spent in the ocean while keeping an ardent discourse with contemporary issues in art."
"Hawaiian waves are heavy and the commitment is personal. For me, the Triple Crown is more about the physical and natural challenges facing the individual than it is about competition. The waves are the main attraction. It’s about handling the immense power, in physical and historical terms, of Hawaiian waves. Again, it’s personal."
