    I've always loved Pelicans - they have an ugly grace as they effortlessly ride updrafts along unbreaking swell for miles.  As I started riding 11'+ gliders, boards designed for ultimate trim, and connecting unbreaking sections of waves, it was the closest one could come to experience gliding like a pelican.  Pelicans are also good signs for fishermen.  Diving birds mean there is bait in the water and probably fish as well.  Any seafaring enthusiast has to at least respect them.

    This pelican is one of the favorite embroideries, I've ever designed and I knew it would have a classic vintage collegiate / athletic look on the navy wool.
