Surf Garage Honolulu: Original Shoot

Taking my tele to the Surf Garage on King Street, just past University, raised a few eyebrows at first. But I had been brainstorming for a while about images for a cover idea on "The Water Rule". The guys at the shop were totally cool with me moving the telecaster all over the floor in order to shoot reflections of their surfboard line up in the high gloss lacquer of the guitar.

The Surf Garage ( specializes in high end boards by shapers such as Donald Takayama, Chris Christenson, Bing, Dick Brewer, Firewire, Hobie, Robert August, Ben Aipa, Scott Anderson, Surfboards Makaha, Con Surfboards and others. Some really cherry pieces on display whenever you walk in… one of my favorite board shops!
