“My dad was a big surfer—he’s from Huntington Beach and worked for Surfing Magazine for years as a staff photographer. When I was about eight he started taking me on surf trips with him to Hawaii, Costa Rica, and Mexico. I remember meeting Tom Curren in 1990 on the north Shore of Oahu—my dad was obsessed with his surfing and style so I naturally thought he was a god. As far as my art, 80s skateboard graphics and traditional tattoos are my biggest inspirations. This collaboration is a trip; surf art is traditionally very peaceful and soft but I like creating stuff more dark in nature. As for the board itself, I got a step up so I have to find somewhere that holds some swell but is kind of me!”—Sketchy Tank
