Surfer on a Wave

by Robert Pashby

City and County of Honolulu, Department of the Culture and the Arts

Kuhio Beach at Monsarrat Avenue, Waikiki, Hawai`i    

Surfer on a Wave by Robert Pashby was dedicated in 2005, in a prominent location on the sidewalk of Waikiki across from the Honolulu Zoo.  The City and County Department of the Culture and the Arts wanted to repair and improve the base of the Surfer on a Wave bronze sculpture.   

The existing conditions of the base included loose moss rock boulders and a water feature pump pit that was filled with standing water.

I provided 4 alternatives to the repair of the sculpture base which included glass mosaics, puka lava cut, flagstone, and flat topped moss rocks.

The existing low moss rock wall would remain and a new post and chain would be installed on the top of the low rock wall.  This would hopefully keep the visitors off of the base of the sculpture.

The Surfer on a Wave can soon proudly ride the waves on its new base.
