A new era for Harvey Surf is beginning. It’s all signed, sealed and soon to be delivered after a six week fit-out. Harvey Surf will be open for business on the 12th December The new address is 10 PACIFIC AVE MIAMI, 50 meters from the highway lights at Miami High School.  Same friendly advice.

Until then its still the old address at Burleigh. After 2 1/2 years at Lower West Burleigh Rd, and rapidly running out of space, I am moving into a bigger factory, 3 times bigger in fact. This will give me the walls I need to hang my art, space to display a wider range of boards and have a creative studio where I can paint larger works. More space for books, sculptured pieces, and all the necessary surfing accessories. Room for exhibitions of not only my work but of other artists and events as well. An extended range of both paulownia blanks and shaped Alaia boards will be available. Shapers Workshops for both foam and Alaia surfboards in a bigger and more comfortable environment available by appointment.

A glass walled shaping bay will face onto the gallery, offering an insight into surfboards handcrafted the traditional way. There will be enough room to stand back and absorb the mood of the art and space to lay down a classic 9 foot balsa surfboard without having to worry about banging into other boards.

So for the next 6 weeks I will still be an artist and surfboard shaper but also a carpenter, painter, interior decorator and removalist, sound like hard work but the reward will be a great new gallery/workshop for all to enjoy. All part of  ”LIVING THE DREAM”

Hope to see you at the gallery / workshop sometime soon.
