Greetings, Shredderz! Today on Sagas of Shred we have a special announcement from then-two-time World Champion Tom Curren. The advertisement you see below originally appeared in the June 1990 issue of Surfer Magazine (Vol 31, No 6).
I’m not going to spend too much time on the actual message of the ad — I’ll just say that there are some things I agree with, and others I don’t — but I did think it was an interesting throwback. That’s especially true considering how many pro surfers can be found hawking CBD nowadays.
I also loved the artwork, which does a great job of capturing Curren’s relaxed, inimitable style. I don’t recognize the signature, unfortunately. If you know who the artist is please let me know!
Thanks for reading and we’ll be back next Thursday evening with more Sagas of Shred.
