California Photos


Surfing Photos: Surfboard Art

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF.--Surfboards on a wall? Sort of... the board designs are actually art relief work molded to the building as part of its decor at Huntington City Beach in Huntington Beach, California.

While the photo itself is no great masterpiece, the surf art holds interest in the fact that it is a unique building treatment not commonly seen.

Especially unusual about the boards and themes are the muted greens and odd burnt orange color schemes. You just never see these color combinations on surfboards in the contemporary surfing culture. The colors were selected possibly to underwhelm slightly and not be too appealing to those finding them attractive decorations worth trying to detach.

Among the board designs is one with the California grizzly seen in California symbols, and then there's a board with an American flag design.
