Paintings by Andy Davis Matt Titone

Dubbed the “best surf artist of our generation,” Andy grew up watching the action sports industry bubble up in neighborhoods around him. Always daydreaming and drawing, he was obsessed with Southern California surf culture. He spent afternoons skateboarding around the Vans Shoe Company and talking surf history with friends. His authentic passion for surfing began to take shape in his colorful art…a fresh way to look at the energy of surfing while paying homage to classic surf iconography of the past. His legendary surf artwork has shown in galleries in all corners of the world, from Bali to Rome, from New York to Laguna Beach.

Jeff Canham is an artist, designer, sign painter, and woodworker based in San Francisco. He grew up in Hawaii, studied graphic design at the University of Oregon, and afterward became the Art Director of Surfer magazine in Southern California. In 2005 he moved to the Bay Area and began apprenticing at New Bohemia Signs where he learned the traditional art of sign painting. With a BFA in graphic design and a very unofficial degree in hand lettering from New Bohemia, his colorful typographic compositions combine both new and old techniques. He currently works out of a studio space in San Francisco’s Outer Sunset district called Woodshop.

Ceramics by Joe Skoby Matt Titone

Joseph Skoby is a Southern Californian ceramic artist whose work is inspired by the nature of his native State. His ceramics, created in his own lush garden, recall his intimate dance with the ocean as a lifelong surfer—a pure form of self-expression that disappears after each wave. Each vessel is unique and hand thrown and crafted in their studio in La Jolla California.

His work finds inspiration in the traditional Japanese ceramics craft, combined with the freedom of  diving into the contemporary. The pieces embody an aesthetic principle where imperfections become the birthplace of unique beauty.

Textured with hand carved patterns or smooth to the surface, Skoby’s ceramics abandon their functional purpose as vase and become a sculptural element end in itself.

Glazes are combined with an excellent balance of tasteful varietal palette of colors often overlapped, layered, dipped, brushed or poured.

Simple yet profound, Skoby’s work look beautiful paired in groups, forming a harmonious relationship mirroring that of his own with nature.

Jon Wegener grew up, began surfing and shaping surfboards in Southern California. He has been shaping since 1987 and has dreamed of doing nothing else except surfing and shaping ever since. After his college years in San Diego, he returned to Hermosa Beach, CA and began to work on his passion full-time. In addition to starting Wegener Surfboards he has also shaped for a number of other veteran shapers including Hap Jacobs, and Bing Surfboards. In 2010 Jon moved to Encinitas, CA. As a board maker Jon has always tried to find the right board for the right conditions. Jon loves to make and ride a huge variety of surfboards.  Depending on the surf conditions he rides anything from a finless wooden alaia, to a “traditional” fiberglass noserider, or a progressive shortboard. In 2005, Jon’s brother Tom Wegener introduced Jon to the Alaia after a trip he had taken to the Bishop Museum in Hawaii. The two brothers have been making Alaias, and Paipos, and trying to get the word out ever since. Along with the boards they make they have been spreading information about Paulownia wood, a special wood perfect for making surfboards. Since Jon began working with wood, he has not only looked for ways to combine his two passions, he has strived to make his regular surfboards “ASAP” (as sustainable as possible). Jon is more excited about where the surfing world is going now, than at any other time in his surfing/shaping career.
