2016 Collection Ikigai (mixed medium)

Donald Brink

...the whole thing is a creative exercise, acting out of what is birthed within, adding to the good of others paths, in so becoming truly alive in ourselves.


Being invited to the Greenroom festival in Japan this year is an honor. It's a fusion of surf culture, music and art. I grew up painting and knew oil colors way before the beach and surfboards. This collection was inspired by the Japanese concept of "ikigai" meaning "a reason for being. "

There is a tension of what to call art and what's fitting to call traditional. Riding on the song of that divide here is the "ikigai collection."

Come see the boards this weekend at the Boardroomshow in Del Mar. Discuss the designs and share what you have been surfing and enjoying in the sea. There will be a demo day at 15th Street on Sunday morning, I'll share a few trippy sleds and some waves with anyone looking for some opportunity to investigate the differences and design.

Greenroom Festival is coming up May 21st & 22nd in Japan. Looking forward to meeting all the stoked folk there too.

Watch the VIDEO HERE to learn all about the details of difference in the boards, see the benefits of the designs and hear the motivation incorporated in the fins, rockers and distribution of foam. Helping you surf the way you stand.


南アフリカという国は日本から随分遠く、多分ほとんどのサーファーが行こうともあまり思わない国だと思うし、(あなたがレギュラー フッターならちょっと話は違うかもしれないけど)J—Bayというポイントの名前は聞いた事があっても、どんなサーファーが居て、どんな波が割れているの か、ほとんど知らないと思う。でも、こんな名前を聞いたらちょっと興味が出てきませんか? ショーン トムソン、マーティン ポッター、ジョーディー スミス、
それにブレンダン ギイボンズ。
アメリカ、ヨーロッパに続いてサーフィンの歴史の長いこの国は、沢山の素晴らしいサーファー達を育てて来たし、素晴らしい波が沢山立つ。という事は当然沢 山の素晴らしいシェーパーも 居る。単純に日本からあまりにも遠い為ピンと来ないだけ。一度トリップ プランを練ってみるのも悪くないですよ。 ドナルド曰く、ハワイのコールド ウォーター バージョンだ、という事なので、日本製のウェットさえ持って行けば、空いたポイントで素晴らしい波に遭遇事がギャランティーなのだ。
