Surfer statues at Jacksonville Beach's Latham Plaza

Surfer statues at Jacksonville Beach’s Latham Plaza

Part of the fun in traveling is the art and how it reflects the local culture. This statue provides a look at the surf craze on Florida’s Jacksonville Beach.
From the distance, the statues appear to be real. When a bit closer it is clear that they are statues. Located at Jacksonville Beach’s Latham Plaza the statues depict a woman brandishing a longboard and at her feet, a male surfer waxing his board.
After a bit of research I found that they are hand-painted bronze and donations from the J. Johnson Gallery and created by J. Seward Johnson.
