Wavescapes Surfboard Art Exhibition 2009

We love the beach at Life is Savage and thus it is our duty to bring you any news that helps maintain our backyard here in Cape Town. 

South African artists are helping out again this year to raise some cash by creating unique surfboards to be sold at a special auction.

 Check out these puppies.

 Those are just a few of the boards on show. How sick are those. I don’t surf ,but damn i’ll look good holding one of those hey.

“The collaboration between the Wavescapes Surf Film Festival and non-profit conservation group the Save Our Seas Foundation will see ten decorated surfboards sold to benefit ocean related charities such as the NSRI and the Shark Spotters. The Wavescapes Surfboard Art Exhibition takes place from the 2 to 9 December at Depasco Café in Cape Town. Surfer comedian Mark Sampson will auction the boards to art collectors and the surfing cognoscenti. Thirteen artists, including Brett Murray, Conrad Botes, Anton Kannemeyer and Sue Opperman, decorated identical “Pipeline teardrop guns” made famous by Hawaiian Gerry Lopez in the early 1970s.” [Wavescape]
