illustration friday – old fashioned

I’ve surfed for a few years… but I think the ladies who surfed back in the old days were very brave indeed! It’s such a male orientated sport to say the least.. and we were often given heaps for giving it a go. In the end we rallyed together and formed an all girls surfriders club back in 1986, which we aptly called “The Gidget Surfriders”. They were some wild fun times I tell ya… made so many great friends too.

Anyhow, here’s my water colour painting (testing out things with a slightly different style too) for “old fashioned” in this week’s illustration Friday’s theme… an ode to the good old fashioned surfer gal….”Cowabunga!!”
