Jay Nelson: San Francisco Surf Artist

Jay Nelson makes forts for a living. And tree houses, boats, campers, and submarine rooms in his San Francisco workshop. He believes that function is important, but many of his structures border on non-functional because he wants you to ask questions and attempt to understand what you’re looking at. Surfer Magazine made a short documentary on the San Francisco artist and Ocean Beach surfer.
