Surf culture is packed with inspirational images and ideas you can use as a jumping off point for your design and illustration.
Although we tend to think of surf culture's long term impact of fashion, surf culture has influenced pop culture in nearly every medium.
Why has surf culture been so impactful?
It's a way of life, it's an ethos, it's a form of self-expression. To be able to surf successfully you have to stand for something - whether it be peace or freedom or individuality - and this attitude permeates into other aspects of life.
You see it in the clothes people wear, the music they listen to, their diet... surfing is about more than just riding waves. This blog post will explore some key areas where surf culture has had a major influence on society.
