The Surfing Madonna reappears in Leucadia, CA. Pray for Surf!

Artist Mark Patterson has installed the famed Surfing Madonna mosaic piece in the Cafe Ipe aka “Coffee Cofee”, Surfy Surfy and Santos Fine Art patio with the cooperation of landlord Keith Harrison.

Cruise down to 974 N. Coast Hwy 101 in funky Leucadia, California and see it person.
This is the original piece that was all over the news last year.

    Rad! No comment from Surfy owner JP in the UT? What gives? The surfing public wants to know: how’d you get so lucky? Does Patterson get free boards and coffee for life or what?

    Big congrats!

    Awesome! This art install is way better than the under the rock art install that cost 10mil and used a rock from Colorado vs a rock within Cali.

    I wonder if certain ethnic groups might confuse the Surfing Madonna with the Virgin of Guadalupe, mis-label this piece of art as “sacreligious” and call Surfy a “racist organization”….seems to be a common theme these days. FWIW, I personally think it looks fantastic and sends a great message.

      You are putting too much thought into it.

      By “certain ethnic groups,” do you mean white conservatives? I agree, they ruin everything.

    I think its wonderful that a beautiful piece of “folk art” found a home. ANd I’m glad we won’t go up to the supreme court debating its religious value like the sideshow we have about the Mt. Soledad cross. Thank you for stepping up “surfy” well done!

    That’s why they call it Catholicism… The Muslims, Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, and Catholics “are Christian too.”

    theology in the hands of … The thing that makes a Christian isnt the words the use, it’s the claim that Jesus is the son of God, trusting in is work for our justification (not anything we do) and in him alone for salvation, equating him to be God, incarnate. All other religions is about what you do to save yourself, true Christianity is about what Christ has done for you. Muslims dont recognize him as God, Mormons dont either without their mishandling of the true definitions of words (they change them to fit their “theology” to make them seem like Christians), this is the “religion” that first said Black people were of Satan, until BYU needed outstanding athletes to compete – i’m not making it up, do a little history. JW’s? Come on! Christ is Satan’s good brother? Catholics are Christian? Do some research into their “religion” and tell me why they are Christian? Do they need Christ to save them, if so, what the Mary worship thing? This is a surf site, Go to church to get theology.

    How theologically analytic can you guys get over this? It’s a piece of art. Interpret it however you want, but take the debate out of it. It is what it is, however you see it.

What do you think?
