If our saltwater-swollen brain serves us correctly, it was about a year ago that we spent a day surfing with James Victore. He swore us to secrecy that day about his plans for combining his two greatest loves to create surfboard art. Now, we’re free to spread the word about the “American Badass” collection, hand-painted by Victore and shaped by Mike Becker.
The shortboards are inspired by Picasso and say (translated): “Danger, what curves! And me with no brakes!” and “and cold beer.” Longboarders get one of Victore’s signature skull illustrations. For more information, you know where to go. Rockaway Beach. Ask for James.
