This graphic comes from our friend and neighbor Eric Maurus. Eric combined his passions of surfing and horses to hand cut this block print of a surfer on horseback watching the waves at a secluded spot with ideal lefts and rights and light offshore breezes. Our tees are durable and built to last, with a super soft enzyme wash.

 

The Artist: Eric Maurus

Eric Maurus grew up in the Basque part of France and settled in the village of Guethary in the early ’90s. At a young age, Eric was consumed by drawing and taking things apart. When surfing entered his life at age 10, naturally it became his subject of predilection. After graduating from the exclusive Academy Julian in Paris, Eric returned to the south of France to open his gallery dedicated to surfing art. Eric's devouring passion for art and the ocean led him to explore painting, drawing, sculpting, and building solid redwood hot curls. 

Traveling to Hawaii was a revelation. Finally, he stood where it all had happened. This first trip to the islands stayed engraved in his mind for the rest of his life. Stopping in California on his return trip back to France, Eric ended up under the wings of master surfboard shaper Donald Takayama. Eric was mentored by the best in the trade and realized his childhood dream.Eric’s love for surf culture and history - and his passion for riding antique equipment - clashed with the explosion of mass surf school crowds at his home break of Parlementia. Seeking retreat, he exiled himself far from the chaos of the beach, and instead focused purely on painting.."To me, it is essential to master the technique to free yourself from it, hence the freedom to create spontaneously,” says Eric. Ten years passed quickly for Eric as he explored the subtle nuances of oil painting, the difficulty of the encaustic technique, and the purity of the line drawing.  Returning to Hawaii in 2013 for a holiday, Eric fell back in love with surfing. Today, he divides his time between Guethary and Honolulu, shaping, sculpting, and painting.
