Surfing The Bar at Merimbula Beach from the Surfing Australia Series by Garry Birdsall Surf Art.
At the enterance to erimbula Lake a sand bar was formed, where the ocean ground swells rise up to form the famous wars off "The Bar". These waves mostly run south creating classic left hand rides but, on occasions, there's some great right handers too!
The BAR is a famous surfing spot and considered one of Australia's top wave riding destinations.
Garry was born in Sydney where surfing is a national pastime (in his words). He spent all his leisure time as a youth on the beaches surfing. He was one of the pioneers of Malibu surfboard riding. Garry’s surfing ability was so good that he competed in numerous Australian and world surfing events. He was the first artist in Australia to do airbrushed paintings on surfboards. Most of his life he’s worked in the surfing industry form board building to wholesale & retail sales.
Today, Garry paints in his Sydney based studio. He uses a variety of mixed media but mostly favours the technique he used in “Cronulla Point Going Off” which is a combination of opaque and translucent watercolours. He’s still out actively surfing
