reCreation: Rideable Artwork


The celebration of human and environment is even more beautiful if the interaction is both unique and accessible. Every turn on a powder surf board takes a special combination of earth, water, and the human desire to create in blank spaces. We currently live in a world where surfing on the snow is possible...and that's a beautiful thing. Sometimes it takes a little reCreation to see that.

About Boops

"Boops" consists of Claire, a fine artist and graphic designer, and Gavin, a poet and snow surfboard maker. The two of them reside in the UP, where they utilize their location isolation as a means of immersing themselves in their work. Gavin hand-builds each canvas: the aforementioned snow surfboards. Claire lovingly paints illustrations on the maple boards.
