In favourable conditions offshore winds rake open ocean swells into neat corduroy lines and send plumes of spray off the back of pitching waves. Scratching over the crest of a feathering wave acute rays of light intersect with offshore winds forming a chromatic aura around the nose of the surfers board. This ephemeral phenomena forms the inspiration for the Surf Confetti series.
