“My use of camouflage on surfboards started from a functional need. In the early days at G-Land, the glare off our boards was searing our eyes. So we started painting the decks and used leaves and palm fronds as patterns. From there it evolved into an art form, but each pattern I chose from a board came from something I’d seen on airplanes, tanks or ships.
This one—the second in a series of limited edition prints—comes from a Leopard tank. It’s a particularly effective scheme that breaks up an outline and makes it more difficult to discern—a tactic that underlines the true purpose of camouflage design.” - GERRY LOPEZ
