Sorry to hear about the passing of John Severson. John was an artist and entrepreneur. A filmmaker, writer, publisher and, above all else, Surfer. Though I never knew the man I wouldn’t be where I am today without his contributions to the world. I grew up devouring Surfer Magazine. Which he started as an accompaniment to his movies. I went on to become art director of that very magazine. I loved surfing so much that, like John, I started making art inspired by surfing. But in order to make it as an artist you also have to be a businessman, and John paved the way for how to to that as well. An inspiration on how to live life as a multi disciplined creative surfer, his legacy in surfing is titanic.
