Artist produces 550-page ‘Surf Story II’ book celebrating the creative culture — a sequel to his 440-pager – Orange County Register

Look around the surf culture, and you’ll see art all around.

It’s more than people taking photos of surfers riding perfect waves or paintings depicting a picturesque ocean. There are the surfboard shapers, the filmmakers, musicians and even founders of surfwear brands.

Despite Robb Havassy’s first “Surf Story” book, released in 2010, being 440 pages, it couldn’t fully tell the story of all the surf artists who make up the unique culture, he said.

So the Newport Beach native spent the past six years creating the second installment, “Surf Story II,” a 550-page book to be unveiled at a release party and art show Saturday, Aug. 12, at the Hurley headquarters in Costa Mesa.

“I felt it was so important to follow up the first book, which I felt was a good start,” he said. “There was so much I wanted to share and portray.”
