Hibiscus and Malolos


I designed this hibiscus pattern originally for a longboard fin, but somehow we never used it, while revising some of my older sketches I saw the Malolo fin pattern I made for Akila Aipa and thought that it might be a good idea to mix both of them.

A month ago I was asked to exhibit some pieces at the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of O’ahu, I didn’t have much work in stock and I was in the middle of moving homes and most importantly my studio, so I decided to make two longboards using the same technique that I developed in the eighties when I painted boards at Blue Hawai’i Surf.

This is the result of combining the hibiscus flower pattern with my version of the Hawaiian flying fish. This piece will be exhibited until the end of February at Turtle Bay.

Out of stock


Original art on surfboard, shaped on a polyurethane blank, laminated with polyester resin and sanded finished. The board was painted using acrylic inks on top of the finished board and glossed with an acrylic varnish using a technique that the artist developed in the mid eighties.

98 x 21 x 3″ comes with easy to install steel hanging brackets, and includes free shipping.

Although the surfboard shape is meant to be functional, it is not meant to be surfed on but to be displayed indoors as an art piece, as with any other art piece it is best to keep it away from sunlight.
