Bob McTavish on what I consider the board that ushered our world into the short board age... Maybe someone closer to this moment in time might have more detailed info on this period, but for a young grom reading the magazines at the time, this shot is the iconic board for me...

Had some buddies driving down the coast last week... Andy Davis, Tyler Warren with their buddy Chuck (taking this iphone picture) stopped into the studio for a drive by and a rap... Three distinct eras, all about 15 years apart, are represented in this picture... For me, it is a good feel to know that the torch is being carried by such a cool group of dudes... Watched some preliminary footage of the film Tyler is working on with a buddy, sick... Creative, soulful and exciting surfing, to say the least... Stand tall all you young bucks, claim your times and add to our surfing family tree... SS

Hooked up with one of our cultures truly original OG's the other day in San Diego... Mr. Greg Noll is the cat the two previous posts focused on... The middle shot is a tee shirt I did for his birthday a few years back... I love the shot standing on the wood blank with chainsaw going to town, with Rabbit as the wingman... Classic shit... A huge aloha to Greg and Laura from the Stussy ohana... SS

Some more shots of a pioneer in my world... This vintage group shows different times in the life of a solid contributor to our culture... I am digging the vibe, the Bull and the whole enchilada...

After viewing these photos, the takeaway is as clean and focused as any from a branding point of view... The black and white stripes were a brilliant brushstroke of claiming your turf... Not a soul could wear that but the man himself... Remember when this all went down, early 60's... Biggest respect from me for a masterful job done in a pure way... SS
