Greetings, Shredderz! Welcome to the latest installment of the Social Media Roundup. We’ve got an eclectic bunch of posts this go round, from some beautiful hand drawn artwork, to modern and vintage sticks, and one of my favorite photos of one of the most influential surfers to ever walk the earth. Keep reading for more.
By now you’ve probably heard that Tom Morey, one of the most prolific creative forces in surfing history, recently passed away. I’m probably going to write something longer on Morey, but for the time being, I absolutely love this photo.
Love the restrained and subtle color on this board. I’m guessing this was some sort of resin tint but not 100% sure. Either way it’s a nice reminder that boards don’t need to be super loud and over the top to look great.
Here are some moody and evocative photos of Mikey February. I love the way the yellow board adds just the right amount of pop to the visuals.
Check out this exceptionally clean 70s Gordon & Smith Skip Frye swallow tail single fin. 2nd slide is the money shot, IMHO. Love the sea foam green color.
The above painting is called “Fantasea” and it was done by Australian artist Phil Meatchem. It ended up making the cover of Tracks Magazine, which is how I first heard about it, but I figured I’d link directly to Meatchem’s account to make it easier to check out more of his artwork. Someone commented that the painting was evocative of John Severson’s work, and I couldn’t agree more.
