Today we chat about the evolution of one man’s career; about growing up surfing in Southern California, how designing The Endless Summer poster led to him working with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. He tells us about being headhunted by John Severson, skiing in Mammoth with Dora, and how all art is a derivative of destruction. It’s a conversation with John Van Hamersveld, on today’s episode of Surf Splendor.
