Surfers: Creed McTaggert, Jake Halstead, Kaiman Jaquias, Peterson Crisanto
When it comes to surfers and musicians, the comparisons are rife—each has their own unique style and sound through which they perform. From the aggressive, radical, flowing strokes of Jimi Hendrix, which evoke the spontaneous, yet effortless lines drawn by the late Andy Irons. Deep bass-driven beats of NWA may be seen in the compact, powerful gouges of Hawaiian surfer Sunny Garcia, whereas the thrashy riffs, whammy bar twangs, and chaotic sound of Iron Maiden call to mind the raw, progressive surfing of a young Archy or Christian Fletcher.
