david carson's Profile
David has just been nominated to for the 2014 East Coast Surfing hall of Fame.......David was Art director for SURFER magazine, as well as SURFING Magazines Exlorations, and Quiksilver...David was one of 50 folks worldwide asked to vote on who the TOP 50 Surfers OF ALL TIME were/are for a recent issue of Surfer Magazine. David is a former Pro tour surfer, who had his own signiture model surfboard, and also fin, and later dc worked as an asp judge. Hes had Two articles in Surfers Journal, who said of him: Elsewhere in this issue, David Carson constructs a set of wet, dreamy illusions from scrap and grahix. Out of the lab that was SURFER magazine in the late 1980s, Carson sprung onto the back of the mainstream avant-garde(oxymoron?) where he succeeded beyond anyone's expectations but his own. A surfer first beyond other personas, which in his target client New York media circles is a tres chic way to be precieved. Carsons spreads in this issue are more wallpaper installations than article, a stylized homage to his undying passion for wave riding. Even if you look closely, you might guess that its all a scam,
a la Dora, and one well pulled at that. Well, is it, or not?
Not for David. He stands on principle, damn the torpedoes.
