Surf art print George and Arthur is one of the prints in my Vintage Surf range of illustrations.
Inspired by my family’s history of surfing in Perranporth in Cornwall, by family photos of my grandparents on the beach when they were young, and by the annual World Belly Boarding Championships which take place in Chapel Porth in Cornwall. This would make an ideal present for a surfer or bellyboarder.

My illustrations are inspired by my family’s wooden board surfing heritage. My grandparents (Arthur Roy and Olive Augusta) both grew up in Perranporth in Cornwall, and my grandmother’s family started surfing and making wooden boards after the First World War. I remember my great Uncle (also called Arthur) taking his wooden belly board down to the beach at Perranporth when he was well into his 70s! His son told me recently that Uncle Arthur had made his own Malibu surf board in the 1950s.
George is my new guy, he is modern vintage Cornish. He wears his hair in a quiff and sports a magnificent beard. A dapper kind of chap, he loves living by the sea, and when he’s not in it he is doing something creative like whittling a wooden spoon or cooking fresh mackerel on an open fire on the dunes, watching the sunset.
