A few years ago I had the idea to combine my passions for surfing and art to help raise awareness for our oceans. To start I needed a broken board and found one on Craigslist.
The young guy from Montauk I bought it from had just pruchased the board. On a clean and perfect fall day he took it out for a surf. On his first wave he dropped in and got fully covered. As it built the wave sucked up, became very steep and the pressure of his drop cracked the board.
The one is about catching the wave that we all dream about. The one is about the first painting that started me on my Broken Boards journey. Here's to The One!
