Today’s Painting is the Second of 20, titled DREAMING OF WINNING AT TRESTLES 11 x 14 on Canvas Board, Uni Posca Paint Pens.

This is pro surfer Patrick Gudauskas, dreaming of winning at Trestles as a grom!

This painting was inspired by Patrick’s surfing in the Hurley Pro yesterday, where he beat Kelly Slater.   Spectators on the beach cheered him on.

Today Patrick competed against Taj Burrows and didn’t win but he qualified to surf in all the other WCT events.  Watch out for Patrick Gudauskas blowing up in the next three events!

Patrick is a San Clemente local and one of the three frothing, eternal grommets, the Gudauskas brothers.  I’m stoked to have such a great ambassador representing San Clemente on the World Tour.

Tanner Gudauskas - Iron Maiden Surfboard Art by Drew BrophyProfessional Surfer Tanner Gudauskas called and wanted Drew to paint Eddie from Iron Maiden onto one of his surfboards.  Being a big Iron Maiden fan himself, Drew was stoked to do it.

I had never met Tanner, though Drew’s always talked about the Gudauskas family and how talented and cool they are.  The three Gudauskas brothers, Tanner, Patrick and Dane are all excellent surfers, and they have parents that seem to fully support them in everything they do.

When Tanner came into the office, I got to meet him for the first time.  And I realized what makes this guy so likable – he’s a ball of positive energy, smiling big, very happy, just stoked on life!  Being around someone like that, even for a few minutes, tends to rub off on you and when he left our office, I was energized with those positive vibes!

Here’s the progression of the board painting.  Drew cranked up Iron Maiden the entire time he painted it, which drove me crazy.  I finally made him put on his headphones so I could think without heavy metal blaring.

When the painting was done,

I thought how strange it was for such nice guy like Tanner to want something so GNARLY on his board!  But, I guess even really nice guys have some skeletons in their closets…..

Keep an eye out for Tanner – he’s a San Clemente surfer that’s definitely destined to go somewhere big with his surfing.  And he can throw some huge airs.
