Huge Surfing Wall Murals

An awesome way to decorate your walls is with surf wall murals as opposed to small surfing posters.  I have been to a yoga studio in Australia that had a wall mural of a surfer dropping in on a huge wave.  The wall mural made a big impact, especially since it made the massive wave life size!

Below are some of my favourite surfing photo wall murals.

A Surfer Rides a Powerful Wave off the North Shore of Maui Island – Wall Mural

Surfing the Tube at Dunes, Noordhoek Beach, Cape Town, South Africa – Wall Mural

Surfboards on Tropical Beach, Bali – Wall Mural

Surfer in Ripcurl, Hawaii – Wall Mural

Surfers at Bells Beach, Torquay, Australia – Wall Mural

The landscape beach wall murals below may not have waves or surfing, but I still think they invoke a nice beachy feeling.  I wouldn’t mind one of the tropical island murals in my apartment on a rainy cold day like today!

The Great Wave of Kanagawa, from the Series “36 Views of Mt. Fuji” (Fugaku Sanjuokkei) – Wall Mural

Tropical Sunset on Beauvallon Bay, Seychelles – Wall Mural

Bay of Honeymoon Island, World Heritage Site, Rock Islands, Palau – Wall Mural

Rick quotes, ” For most of my early years I drew surfers and waves, with palmtree beaches. Now that it’s in demand, I get to return back to a childhood dream and paint surfing for the fun of it.”

Valiere Surf Art

A quote from Steve Valiere about surfing. “For me, to go surfing is really to find my center. It’s a meditation, it’s a yoga, it’s a grounding. … And then there’s the essential purity of it – stripping down and going into the ocean. And once you take off, that’s it – you and the wave – like the tip of the source, the outreach from the source, and that feels good, yeah? Because everyone wants to be part of the source.”

Vintage Surfing Posters by Rick Sharp

Rick Sharp is one of my absolute favorite artists when it comes to vintage surfing posters. Sharp grew up in Houston, Texas. After receiving a scholarship from winning a stateside competition as “most talented” moved to California.  At age 19 his career took of getting a lot of publicity after winning two major poster competitions. For over 10 years living in Santa Barbara Rick created posters, designs and calendars in his cool 60’s style.

Rick later moved to Hawaii where he worked with pastels, brushes and palette knives and bright colors in contrast to his earlier work. Today Sharp sharp has a wide collection of vintage surf and travel posters published in Hawaii and all over the world.

I found these beautiful and almost romantic surf posters by surf artist Wade Koniakowsky. Wade started drawing pretty much instantly as a kid and got involved in surfing at age 12, around 1966. By then I was immersed in art as well. Naturally, surfing would be a favourite subject. If you want to read more about Wade, this is a really great interview.

Why Surfing Posters?

Because I love surfing, everything about it, the early mornings, sand between my toes, the anticipation of your next surf. I grew up in Sweden were I started surfing in a thick wetsuit, gloves and hood in small messy waves. Now I live on the Gold Coast, Australia and love every moment, surfing as much as I can.

This website is dedicated to surfing, surf posters and surf art. Enjoy!
