Raglan surfer and artist Aaron Te Whanatangi Kereopa chats about his journey, following his mischief, taking the risky road and how his talent has guided him into an incredible place in his art and life.

Since that first day he picked up a knife and surfboard more than 20 years ago, Aaron, a self-taught artist, has created contemporary Maori/Polynesian artworks using recycled surfboards.

Aaron’s artworks are held in private collections throughout New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, America, Hawaii, Brazil, Europe, Tahiti, Fiji. They inspire many.
