The exhibition will travel through Asia, Africa, Europe and North America, with the final exhibition being seen in Santa Cruz at the O'Neill Cold Water Classic WT surf event in November.

Legendary Hawaiian waterman Mark Cunningham sends art to Santa Cruz

One of the North Shore’s most famous lifeguards has sent his sculpture ‘Fin Anenome’ to Santa Cruz for the exhibition.

Mark Cunningham spent nearly 30 years as a lifeguard on Hawaii’s North Shore, at Ehukai Beach Park home of Pipeline, saving lives of people who were just unlucky and others who shouldn’t have been there.

"Above are photos of my sculpture "Fin Anemone".  It’s 1,000 skegs that I have found snorkeling, mostly here in Hawaii but also in Indonesia, Tahiti and Fiji.  These fins were selected from my collection for their age, crustiness and time spent in the sea, one can only imagine the millions of waves that washed over them through the years.

This is my tribute to Jack O’Neill.  As every surfer needs a wetsuit, he also needs a fin or three or four.”
