Surf sculpture’s up
Gisborne’s Art in Public Places trustees are delighted to see a long-awaited surfing sculpture in place at the end of Roberts Road.
Trustee Kay Crosby said it was put in place yesterday.
The concept was first put to the Gisborne District Council in August 2016.
“It is a wonderful tribute to the generations of surfers who started here (Roberts Road) and now their grandchildren are learning here,” said Mrs Crosby.
“We are delighted with how it looks and that it doesn’t dominate the landscape. We have had good comments from the neighbours too,” she said.
The $75,000 sculpture is being funded by the trust with the council covering the cost of installation and a storyboard.
