Winter Surf Competition Without an Ocean!




About: Artist and educator in SF

Do you want to bring a sunny California surf competition to a cold wintery place like Wisconsin or Warsaw in the dead of December? Well here is one that I brought to Galway Ireland.

Step 1: Get or Make a Surfboard and a Prize/trophy

You need a surf board or surfboard looking object. Buy a trophy or get a prize. Competition is always more heated when there is booty on the line. Maybe fill part of the room with sand? Maybe serve whiskey from a fountain if it's an adult crowd (this was in Ireland)...You must play a lot of Dick Dale and Beach Boys songs.

Step 2: Ocean Video Chroma Key

Paint a room Blue and use an old 80's video mixer to chroma key an ocean wave over your virtual surfers.

Step 3: Let the Competition Begin!
