"Sidewalk Surfer"

So, when I think of skateboarding, which I have no skill at…I think of danger.  I also suck at surfing but who cares.  I think the reason I never went surfboarding was that I was scared of sharks.  I mean who isn't afraid of sharks.  Either way, I wanted to make a stencil that glorified surfing and skateboarding from the old Dogtown days.  It relates to the Z Boys and the no fear attitude they had, along with surfboarding and my fear of sharks.  When I think of skateboarding, I think of Dogtown and polyurethane wheels. I envision so many cool Southern California surfers and skateboarders… but we can't all be sidewalk surfers.  We also can't all be Tony Hawk!   So why not combine stencils with a tall apartment building and then add some excitement with a throwback vibe!  I give you the skateboard art titled, "Sidewalk Surfer."
