"Many years ago in a house on top of Pūpūkea on the North Shore of Oʻahu, my journey of discovery in a new Hawaiian art form began to take shape.  Hawaiʻi being the birthplace of Surfing and North Shore being the center of the surfing world, I had all the material and inspiration I needed in order to bring my visions to life.  With no teacher and no examples to imitate I slowly over the years developed the tools and techniques that helped me take a Surfboard that seen its glory days riding high waves and transform it to a work of art that now hangs gracefully on high walls.  

Today I present the possibilities of what can be done within the fiberglass shell of a surfboard and the possibilities of creation art for the land from a product made for the ocean.  The reincarnation of a surfboard giving it a new life as a family heirloom of a beloved board from days past, or a reminder of Hawaiʻi's beauty and of the birthplace of surfing."
