South coast surf
Surfers at Kintyre

Here's a couple more of my paintings with surfers in them; not a lot of my work actually involves surfers but the sea is a constant influence ,almost always there . The painting at the top is based on a hot day at high tide Praa Sands on the south coast, with a surf pad overlooking the peak.
The painting above was done a few years ago when I used to visit my grandparents at Kintyre in Scotland. Had some great surfs there, and the surf scene was so small you used to go looking for someone in the water to surf with. If there was no one in chances were you'd be joined by a seal or an otter.
Had good feedback on my work through the Surfers Path article so thanks to everyone who got in touch, including the Surfing Heritage Foundation in the US and the Museum of British Surfing. I will hopefully be showing a painting with Pete at the surfing Museum in the opening show.


  1. I LOVE these! Good stuff...

  2. was wondering if you sell any prints of your paintings? saw the feature in Surfers Path; like your style

  3. hi there Miguel, sorry its taken me a while to reply. I'm hoping to get some prints done later this year if all goes well, cheers Al
