My thesis project is a publication about the surf culture and how the past influenced modern day surfing. I started this project spring quarter of 2014 and was completed spring quarter of 2015. Their are two sections in the publication, “The Past” and “The Present.“ My goal as a designer with this publication was to inform people that the surf culture isn’t something to be scared of. Many people see this culture as something that is “untouchable” unless you are already in it. Giving any normal person even a brief idea of what a culture is about, really gives them the upper hand when it comes to diving into something new. The surf culture is about adventuring, being yourself, and not caring what other people think. Explore who you are, and remember surfing is NOT just a sport, it is a lifestyle.
