The power of the water pushing from behind. The build-up of speed and setting the stance on the board. Now you are free to ride the wave as it roars, rises, and crests behind you, then reaches its peak. You race through the hollow to beat the wave as it crashes down after you. There is no one with you as you dare to defy the water and the waves. It is you, the board, and the one wave on this tremendous journey of strength, balance, and exhilarating energy. This is the special experience artist Shaun Thomas wants to share with viewers, so they can get that same feeling, vicariously, that he has experienced throughout his life. His specialty is in depicting the curves of waves through his wave art sculptures in different interpretations.

Near the end of 2019, Shaun Thomas was approached by Nectarine Grove, a popular Vegan, Gluten Free and Organic Cafe, as they were interested in a large mural of his surf art in their amazing little cafe nestled in the beautiful city of Leucadia, California. Growing up learning how to surf around the nearby San Diego beach towns, Shaun was honored to get his work displayed in such an awesome location. Making sure his work stayed true to his style, Shaun created the entire wave art mural out of wood. Achieving this however was no easy task as the mural wall was much larger than anticipated, measuring in at over 13' tall and 11' wide.
