Surfing Monkey Statues... I ah... well eh... ummmm... these make no sense to me at all. I'm not against them mind you, just didn't know they were out there.

Yeah, those are the surfing monkeys that I was refering to. Thanks for the pics 1961surf. Idon't know why they interest me......maybe I should let this thread fade away.
i would probably buy one of these guys at a flea market though.

They're always people selling them at Kobey's Swap meet in SD on Saturday and Sundays. Many colors to choose from.

I don't see as many Bart Simpsons as I used to...
Buzzy Out!

I don't know if'n da Toe did one or not, but it would sure be fun to get a bunch of us to embelish the hell out of some of these You know...kind of like the cows that are all over the place these days...

I have one propped up in my shop right now.

OK, so this is a surfing monkey that i modified for the SurfBeat art show a few years back. Please enjoy "Slightly Evolved":



oh and altho he has been shattered and re-assemmbled (prior to this photo), he is for sale...for 'round about $500.

I love the gorilla grip stance on the board! Ya these things are classic and kind of a rite of passage for a Mexico surf trip! They are kind of like Pugs! Cute and ugly at the same time!
