Digital Surfing Art Paintings

Surfing has been a very important part of my life. As a teenager, water sports were my main physical activities, passion, and motifs for fine art expression. A queue for a Digital Surfing Art Paintings Series as a tribute to those days in the 70’s.

Surfing is a water coat sport where a rider, the surfer, rallies a wave, usually moving towards the beach.

Although surf-riding can also be executed in ponds or canals with waves being created in various unusual variations, like tides, the standard surfing place is the sea-shore.

People from very cold places can now perform the sport indoors. This has become possible after the invention of pools that can generate artificial waves. Artificial waves such as those from boat wakes are also used for surf-riding.

Surfing is a generic expression that can be used for any type of wave riding, with or without a board and regardless of stance.

Pacific Islands natives are considered the “inventors” of surfing and used to do it on their bellies and knees. They also surfed on kayak-like multi-men canoes and crafts of that sort .

Nowadays, the term surfing is more associated with stand-up surfboarding.

Other forms of surfing are:

  • body surfing (the noble original: no board; on chest and belly)
  • body boarding (softer foam board; usually lying))
  • knee boarding (kneeling on a shorter hardboard)
  • mat surfing

Stand-up surfing is performed on several type of hard boards with variations such as:

  • long boarding
  • short boarding
  • tow-in surfing (mostly associated with big waves)
  • paddle surfing
  • kayak surfing
    • (the following don´t necessarily need waves)
  • kite surfing
  • windsurfing
  • wake-surfing

As new technologies arise, new variations of the sport are ingeniously invented.

 

As surfing became more popular in the second half of the 20th century, a new kind of pop art arose, depicting nature related motifs and praising conservation issues.

    I really like your article and site. I never knew there were so many different types of surfing. As you said, most people are only accustomed to the typical stand up surfing method seen on beaches and in movies. However, you provide so many different cool alternatives I’m very interested so I think I’ll check them out on youtube. You should include a video.

      Hello, there,

      Yes, that’s a great idea. I’m going to put that on my to-do list. Been browsing after one, but it seems I’ll have to compile it with some of those different surfing types. Thanks for your kind words.

      Cheers!
