72"x60"x7" Acrylic on wood panel, Rockstar Energy Drink cans, Chad Sharpe's broken Ronix District Park wakeboard, Ronix North wake handle, vinyl poster
On a recent 2016 wakeboarding trip to Orlando Florida I was lucky enough to ride with pro rider Chad Sharpe. Chad rode for Billabong and is now co-owner and a pro rider at Ronix wakeboards.
Over lunch we discussed Herb O'Brien and his impact on water skiing and wakeboarding. "Know Your Past" celebrates Chad's aggressive approach to wakeboarding and Herb's legendary influence.
Chad shares my passion and support for the Surfrider Foundation and generously donated this broken board.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of "Know Your Past" will be donated to the Surfrider NYC chapter.
