Venice History Surfboard

     S.E.A was asked to contribute a surfboard for the Venice Art Walk. The surfboard was auctioned off to benefit the Venice Family Clinic. Shaped by Jeffrey Sudzin of Om Surfboards and glassed by Dan Cobley-   of DANC Surfboards. The design was assembled by Carson Leh and is directly inspired from Charles & Ray Eames's slide photo mood boards often found in their art and around their Washington Blvd office.   It features archival photos of Venice Beach landmarks, figures, designs, artists, stars, rebels and culture through out the decades. The board received great attention at the auction from other board shapers because of the extremely large printed goji paper graphic laminated underneath the fiberglass.  The first board sold at auction for raising almost $1000 for the Venice Family Clinic, a second board hangs in the lobby of Studio EA's 57 Market St. office.
