Last night we made it down to town for the closing ceremonies of the 2011 Honolulu Surf Film Festival at the Doris Duke Theatre in the Honolulu Academy of Arts. I was honored to be asked a few months ago to create the poster art for the festival. Here it is

We were so lucky to see the screening of Bud Browne's "Surfing in the 50's" with a great introduction and Q and A by Buzzy Trent's daughter. The movie was excellent and really showed the type of athleticism and dedication it took to ride the giant surf in Hawai'i and around the world back in a time of no wetsuits, 80 pound boards and boat trips to Hawai'i from California!
I was also honored to have met Ricky Grigg and see Gerry Lopez again!
