While not all artists are comfortable with the term ‘surf art’, it certainly makes it easier to search for artists whose work focusses on surfing and surf culture. Like it or not, over the years surf art has become very popular, and surf industry brands have used this popularity to create beautiful and unique event artwork and posters for the surfing competitions they sponsor.
Showcased below are just some of the posters we’ve found and love. See also our feature on ‘The Art of the Triple Crown of Surfing‘. Please do share more of your favourites with us on Instagram or Twitter.
We’re always on the lookout for interesting surf culture projects like this. If you see anything, let us know on Instagram or Twitter.
