Surf Weirdos #3

It's not as easy as you might think to surf a van.  They're more expensive than boards, surprisingly, sometimes costing thousands of dollars.  Maintenance is more costly as well, as there are more parts and more fluids involved than even the most finicky wood boards require.  The weight makes paddling out a Herculean effort, unless you can afford an outboard motor.  Steering on a wave is more hope and prayer than actual result.  Rust is always a worry, and draining after a wipeout can take weeks.  But nothing can replace that look on people's faces when you wash up on the beach after hangin' ten in a van.

Painted in oil on a 6x8 inch panel.  Available for purchase here.
