Surf + Skate Silent Auction 2014 Photos

The 2014 Surf + Skate Silent Auction, a benefit for the Venice Family Clinic, took place on august 28, 2014 at Robert Berman Gallery at Bergamot station in Santa Monica, CA. Dozens of artists, Surfers and Skateboarders donated their flavorful works of art on skateboard decks and surfboards since these  activities are an essential ingredient to Venice lifestyle and culture.

My Venice Life caught up with artists, skaters, surfers at the event, notably the legendary Jeff Ho from Zephyr Productions/Z-Boys fame – a truly nice and genuine guy, artists Alejandro Gehry, Clinton Bopp, Kristy Campbell and Mark X Farina (also a well-known DJ). Plus, artists Ed Moses and Andy Moses both had their surfboard art  at the event,

Complimentary hats  with cool decals to choose from that were transferred on them were provided by Volcom, one of the sponsors, with a shop on the Third Street Promenade, plus cold brew from 805. The event attracted a few hundred people who were clearly enjoying the art, beverages, complimentary merchandise and a fun atmosphere. my Venice Life looks forward to covering this annual event again next year.
