With WAVE by Beth Derbyshire
A powerful film of a permanent wave which never breaks. The looped footage and soundtrack show a huge wave held continuously in the moment before it breaks, on a constantly rolling crest. A mesmerising image of an immense natural phenomena.
Longboards: some might say that they are the king of all surfboards. With a life spanning over several decades, there’s no denying that they paved the way for past generations of riders and set the progression of the beloved ocean sport in endless motion. Longboards are engrained in the ethos of surfing.
Surfers Against Sewage and Oxbow UK are proud to present ‘Longlife’ an artistic exhibition of Longboard designs, created by some of today’s upfront creative minds and inspired by the threat of coastal pollution. Longlife is a landmark moment in the history of board art.
Ten artists have donated their talents and support to this cause. The exhibition has travelled all over the UK, finishing in Newquay, the true home of UK surfing. At this event, each of the boards will be put up for auction, with all proceeds going to Surfers Against Sewage.
