ART 101



Launched in the summer of 2014, the Local Motion A-Team aimed to support young local surfers across the islands. These young individuals were selected based on the academic performance, values, and surf ability, in no particular order. As time went on, we realized that the contemporary grom has many interests beyond riding a slice of foam, for example, photography. After taking note of the exceptional imagery produced by our young A-Team members, we realized the need to showcase their work. Allow us to present to you the ART 101 Project.

ART 101 was designed to share and support a trio of young photographers who love photographing surf as much as they love riding it. While we enjoy a good photo, we also enjoy competition and ART 101 is a no-holds bar photography competition as well. Using the Local Motion Facebook and Instagram, each of the artists has submitted a single photo to the ART 101 competition.  Each photo will be judged based on the number of likes it gets on either social media outlet. The photographer who's single photo gains the most likes will win an exclusive deal with Local Motion Hawaii. Their image will be bought and utilized in the 2016 Spring Local Motion clothing line.
