High Tide Surf Art Re-Post

The Godmother of Modern Surf Art has done it again! This time a small departure from her iconic surf art imagery to the nautical life in her newest design for High Tide Surf Art called "Rolling on the High Tide".

Heather Brown composed a show last year with over 40 original paintings depicting 1 complete scene that was entitled "Life at Sea Level" This show has spawned some great new ideas in Brownʻs creative head and throughout the past year we have been seeing some more nautical pieces that bring us the same smiles and serenity as her iconic surf art.

The tee shown below can be purchased directly from or by just clicking on the image below will take you directly to the item for sizing and pricing details.

If you are on or around Oahu tomorrow, November 29, 2012 you can catch a brand new show by Heather Brown at Muʻumuʻu Heaven in Kailua on Oahuʻs East side from 4-7 pm with tons of new original art, new silkscreen editions, great pupuʻs, drinks and as always....FUN!

Heather Brown Holiday Gift Ideas!


I hope that everyone here in the USA and deployed had a great Thanksgiving! We had such a fun day with friends and family and great food!

I have received a lot of emails in the past few days regarding gift ideas for the holidays, so I decided to make it  little easier by highlighting a few each week on my blog here with direct links to purchase if you like what you see!

The first item is a great one for so many reasons, I picked our Green With Aloha Aluminum re-usable water (or any beverage) bottles that come complete with 2 separate tops for drinking so you can choose which one you want to use depending on what you are doing that day. I always LOVE to get gifts like these because I always can use them, great for a day at the beach, on the slopes even to keep in the fridge to have your water cold for you whenever you want. The best part about this as a gift is that it is not only a gift for the recipient but for the World as small steps like these bottles can help stop the use of single use plastics! Green With Aloha!

Clicking on the images below will take you directly to the area on my website for the product with purchasing details, etc.

Haleiwa Artist Heather Brown captures the true essence of the Country and sustainability with her Haleiwa Bridge Green WIth Aloha re-usable water bottle.
The second items that I picked was my limited edition pint glasses available as a variety set of 4 as pictured below, full sets of 4 with 1 image or even just by the piece. Whenever we travel, Chris and I always try and pick up some pint glasses for our house and it is always so much fun to enjoy your favorite juices, water, sodas and more out of a glass that makes you smile!

Thatʻs all for today, stay tuned throughout the upcoming weeks for more suggestions and I wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season!

Heather Brown Teams up with Surfrider Foundation Oahu for the 2012 John Kelly Awards


Wow, winter has begun here on The North Shore of Oahu! The past few days the temperature has dropped, the trades are back and straightened out in their wintertime deal and the swells have been blessing us a couple times a week! I love the fall/early winter season in Hawai'i, the changes in the temperatures and swell patterns and seeing friends from around the world come back for another season.

The kick off to me is always the Surfrider Foundation's annual John Kelly Awards held at Waimea Valley on the North Shore of Oahu.

You can read more about John Kelly, The Surfrider Foundation and the event by following this link here:

I have been deeply involved with The Surfrider Foundation for many years and am always looking for more ways to help out and I was honored to be asked to create the poster art for this years event, The 10th Annual John Kelly Environmental Awards!!

If you are on Oahu, you should really try and get to the event this Saturday, November 17, 2012 at Waimea Valley, contact for tickets is on the poster. Besides acknowledging the recipients of this prestigious award, there is great food, music and a silent auction with great local art, products and more!

Hope to see you there!

From Haleiwa To Byron Bay Australia! Surf Art by Heather Brown at the 2012 Byron Bay Surf Festival


I hope everyone is doing great! I know that so many people right now are having a hard time on the East Coast and our positive thoughts and Aloha goes out to all of them!
Currently we are running a special on our website, where all profits from all sales through Monday will be donated to the relief effort, so if you were looking for the right time to order, this would be a great time! Get some new art and help some people in desperate need! Let's all help the East coast recover as quickly and smoothly as we can. If you are not looking for art, you can still help by visiting any number of sites taking donations. Two of our favorites so far have been:

Please help as we have all been in positions around the World in the past years where we have needed help or assistance and through the charity and good hearts of others, we have been able to start making positive steps, The East Coast needs your help now, please help do what you can as every little bit helps! Please spread the word too!

So, we have just returned from a 3 week tour showing art in Japan, Bali and Australia! Such a fun trip meeting so many new people and new experiences.
Our tour ended in Australia for the 2012 Byron Bay Surf Festival. I was so honored to be invited to the festival this year as a participating artist, and by all accounts this years festival was HUGE! It was so nice to see and meet so many surf art fans that came out to the opening night reception and the show was a great success. Mahalo to everyone at the Byron Bay Surf Festival, participating artist, surfers, bands, educators for making this event so enjoyable!
This was my first trip to Australia as well, so it was so nice to be in a place that is similiar to home but also different at the same time. We had a great time surfing the local areas, eating fresh organic local foods, touring around a bit and just relaxing in Byron and Lennox Head. Here are a few pictures from the event. Everyone Have a great weekend!
