It must be the soulful-ness of surfing that attracts so many artists to the sport. We’ve got fantastic musicians, sculptors, videographers, photographers, and painters – who all rip! We’re pretty lucky to have a sport that has attracted so much talent. Many of these talented folks take surfing and bring it to life in their medium – songs, statues, pics, vids, etc. But when you are able to take your talent and make equipment better that’s pretty awesome.
One of our local shapers also has a real knack of marrying equipment with art. Matt Parker from Album Surfboards is constantly cranking out new boards and if you are one of the 25,000 people who follow him on Instagram @AlbumMatt you know he makes some of the most beautiful boards out there. Check out a quick sampling from his feed below, give him a follow, and if you are in the market for a custom stick – you may want to give him a call. Highly recommend you check out the website because you can shop his Insta account – sic!
