Ride the Rainbow

The true romance that underlines our creative expression between surfing and art would be lost without the courage to follow your heart and Ride the rainbow !

Ozzie has been lighting up the world with his own unique style of art from a very young age. His works range from the Anti Bad Vibes slogans to death punk rock goth eagles snakes and fun drawings from all dimensions. His art has covered album covers posters books skate boards surf boards and hats shirts and all sorts of paraphernalia. There is no box for this creative soul his passion flows through every brush stroke or wave of his hand to brighten up the blank canvas we call life !

Creative ideas come like a soft breeze for Ozzie. He never struggles to have fun and open the channels of creative freedom. His vision was something we shared from the first time he mentioned we should make some boards.  The concept was to develop our own collection of boards that would be like nothing else out there ! This was true to the Hot Buttered Surfboard Range by Terry Fitz and Martin Worthington. Ozzie sent me a photo of a image he really liked of two guys sitting with these amazing twin fins and a singe fin. He said we are going to do this ! If there was anyone that could take on such a challenge I am sure Ozzie and Myself would be the ones to give it a go ! The collection that Terry and Martin put together could never be replicated but what we found through this undertaking is that we have our own unique style of art and surfing. The best thing is we get to surf these beautiful boards and and have fun doing something we love.
