John Severson, Vintage Surf Photography

I recently came across the surf photography of Surfer Magazine creator, John Severson. John was a pro surfer, turned film maker, producing some of the very first surf movies including 'Big Wednesday' and 'Surf Safari' before starting the magazine and turning his time more to surf photography and graphics.

His photos are of the big wave riders from the late 50's and early 60's printed in black and white. Signed versions are available to buy from Surfer Art along with his paintings, block prints and re-prints of his promotional movie posters.
