“My style has always been evolving, but I am still heavily influenced by the surf and skateboard culture, DIY mentality and street art. The artwork that I choose to create goes along with surfing because the ocean is always changing. I like to always mix it up a bit and either work with paper collage, pen and ink, or painting. I like to have fun and express myself…” -Sean Bernhardt

"Surfing for me can be pretty existential. A lot of times when I surf in the evening and long after the sun sets, I try to quiet my mind and try to perceive everything around me with all my senses. I think for me, surfing is all about gratitude. It’s definitely a privilege, and I get this feeling that when I’m thanking the universe for all its gifts, it’s thanking me too." -Manny Caro 

"I feel like surfing was a spiritual discovery for me about five years ago, and it has tied my whole lifestyle together. Surfing has definitely been reflected in some of my art.  I grew up in Vermont and lived there most of my life, but a connection with the ocean was what I was looking for." -Erik Schmidt 

"I think surfing is a bit of everything. It’s so intertwined in my life that it really is everything. Sometimes it’s a cruisey pastime on a lazy day, sometimes it’s an excuse to get exercise, sometimes it’s a couple hours of pushing my kids into waves and sometimes when you have those magical sessions when everything comes together just right – it’s something deeper." - Matt Parker  

"The main bulk of my subject matter comes from my own vintage surfboard and vintage fin collection. Six prints are done for each surfboard and fin, then those fins and boards are pulled out of rotation permanently, and surfed for the rest of their lives. I consider each print of the boards as a fingerprint, and living proof that these shapes did exist, and seeing as surfboards are ONLY foam and fiberglass, they might not be here forever, or might be broken the very next swell." -Scott Szegeski
