Art you can ride, Tikihine range by Starboard

 

 

Starboard team rider, Sonni Honscheid has designed the 2018 line of Starboard Tikhine standup paddle boards. Sonni is both an artist and a sup racer and Starboard mastermind/CEO, Svein Rasmussen, offered her the opportunity to bring her ART on board.

If you know Sonni Honscheid’s artwork, you know it’s whimsical, colorful and FULL of love for the ocean.  Her website is a journey through color and vibrant energy, and it will inspire you to celebrate a life on the water.

“The ocean is my main inspiration.” — Sonni Honscheid

So, when Sonni was brought over from SIC to Starboard International, Starboard’s CEO Svein Rasmussen (an artist in his own right who celebrates PEOPLE like most of us celebrate ART), asked her if she would design Starboard’s upcoming Tikhine line of paddle boards, a line that is made specifically for women.This 2018 Tikhine line of “Art You can Ride” by Starboard and Sonni, is being shipped in both inflatables and composites as special editions begin to drop in to select retailer markets this month.

Here’s what Sonni has to say about her recent collaboration:

“Painting is like writing a diary for me about all my experiences, paddling and exploring different places around the world with their beautiful landscapes, people, different cultures and the OCEAN connecting everything.

The ocean is my main inspiration.

I’m really proud and happy to have the chance on this beautiful collaboration with Starboard on the Tikhine Go Range, “Art You can Ride” line of standup paddle boards – a result combining my two biggest passions – paddling and art.”

— Sonni Honscheid, Starboard Dream Team Rider

some stories around my art

Sonni Hönscheid "Fins"

These fins were laying on the oceanfloor on the northshore of Maui /Hawaii for decades. The worlds best windsurfers sacrificed them in the extreme conditions and the unbelievable underwater nature just swallowed them and and put barnacles and shells all over them. Together with a hawaiian surfer I dove after them and gave them a new destination: they changed into a piece of art.

Leave a footprint by Sonni Hönscheid

A surfer left this footprint with the red soil of maui / hawaii on my canvas, right after he surfed the biggest wave of his life. With his track he leaves a magic moment.

The pieces for this collage I found on the most beautiful beaches around the world , from all continents of our planet. To imagine that maybe a little piece of plastic was blown into the ocean and did a yoyage to far shores, drifted in currents , carried by the swell and storm, smashed onto the reef and shredded by huge shorebreak, than got washed on some exotic beach right in front of my feet, in my bag starts a new journey and now is part of this collage, is very fascinating!
