McCoy "Lazor Zap" Surfboard Print
From my new print series: "Board To Death" - classic boards from the early-mid 80s!
When I was a teenager working my dream job at Wavedancer Surf Shop in the Annapolis Mall, I had firsthand exposure to the most awesome boards of all disciplines! I may not have been able to afford them all, but that time sparked an appreciation and a reverence for these functional works of art. The 80s was a rich time for radical board technology and graphic design so I saw it only fitting to pay tribute to them here at Steve Shook, Ink.
I used to stare at McCoy surfboards until my eyes went blurry. The intricate airbrushing just underneath the fiberglass was mesmerizing. No two boards were alike, and all were inspired and very much of their time. Their bright colors were burned into my retinas, even after so much sunlight exposure would begin to fade the neon pigments over the years. To my chagrin, I never owned a McCoy Lazor Zap, but my wildly airbrushed Rip Curl thruster was the next best thing.
Speaking of the next best thing, why not relive the radical surfboard designs of the 80s with this beautiful print on your wall? Guaranteed to draw your eye to it every time you walk into the room!
