Live ephemeral performance is an integral aspect of surfing culture, whimsical acrobatic actions performed on temporal liquid forms, are captured and presented in magazines and films. My intuitive performances of abstract painting and making in an art space, studio, public or surfing context are documented and displayed hijacking these methods of presentation. The cross over of surfing action and action painting creates a unique healthy environment for my exploration between the surfing and art community.
