How To Draw A Wave

July 16th, 2010 by John Zanussi

  I remember all throughout my years in school getting super bored during a class and then dozing off only to think about perfect peeling right handers or nicely shaped a-frames. I’d snap out of it and draw some rendition of it on a notebook. I’m not the most artistic person so the sketch would never look as good as I pictured it. If only I had this guide by surfer and artist Shannon McIntyre back then. More »

Naff le Skell T-Shirts First Look and Interview

June 29th, 2010 by John Zanussi

New York photographer Matt Clark has been working quietly on his new project for some time now. It’s called Naff le Skell and it is a line of t-shirts designed by Matt himself. These aren’t your typical “surf brand” shirts with a colorful logo and some waves on them. The shirts included in the summer line have a real fresh and unique feel to them. I’ve already ordered two and can’t wait until some new designs drop. Clark has definitely put a lot of time into the collection and it really shows in the designs. We asked him a few questions about Naff le Skell, like how he got started with the shirts and where the name came from. We’ve also got a full gallery of photos he took of the collection while on a surf trip in Nicaragua. The shirts are currently on sale online and in select stores. More info, the whole interview, and the gallery can be seen after the jump…. More »

Artist Tom Veiga

May 10th, 2010 by John Zanussi

Brazilian artist, Tom Veiga and his work have been showing up all over  the internet lately, so it’s about time we showed off some of his stuff on SURFBANG. Tom chooses from surf breaks all over the world and paints them in a very minimal but cool way. There isn’t much going on in the paintings other then the waves and the background, but the way it’s done and the colors he uses make me want to hang a few in my house. More »

Dane Gudauskas & Isis ‘Lips’ Collection

April 25th, 2010 by John Zanussi

  When not surfing and traveling the world competing in the WQS, Dane Gudauskas keeps busy with his second love: creating art. He’s now teamed up with a company called Isis, which specializes in iPhone and laptop accessories including bags, cases, and skins. The ‘Lips’ collection, is an original design inked by Dane on surfboards that accompanied him to Tahiti, Australia and Hawaii, was his first choice for the ISIS collection. The super funky ‘Lips’ image is as bold as Dane himself and incorporates bright colors that pop off the ISIS iPhone shell.  Plus, the interior of each shell flaunts the pro-surfer’s autograph! “I was stoked to sign my name on this project.  ISIS is cutting edge in the consumer electronics market and their gear is a great canvas to showcase my creative side and give iPhone cases some artistic personality”, says Gudauskas.  “I’m waiting for my next inspiration to hit so I can recreate the magic and collaborate with them again.  Through ISIS, I want to push the envelop of creativity within the consumer electronic industry”, Dane states More »

Luke Okay Board Art

April 21st, 2010 by John Zanussi

  In the past we’ve all taken a board of ours out back with a few cans of spray paint and maybe some masking tape and tried to come up with a radical design on the deck. Well if you’re like me and have very minimal artistic abilities, it can be super hard to come up with something that looks good enough to show off to the whole lineup, unless your name is Luke Okay.
