Tee Shirt-Talk: A Step Into Julian Wilson’s Balinese Backpack
Just like the rest of us, Jules hates washing too.
To celebrate the t-shirt and their team riders, Hurley enlisted Julio ‘YAIA’ Battistelli, an Argentinian designer best known for his highly detailed work with Santa Cruz Skateboards in the late 80s/early 90s (skeletons galore!), to craft a range of shirts inspired by the surfers themselves.
“From the early sketches to the final art, I was driven to build something that while new and unique, paid homage to classic California surf and skate vibes, an era that captured the mind of my generation,” Yaia said about the range.
The range features an individual tee for Ace Buchan, Kolohe Andino, John Florence, Michel Bourez, Julian Wilson, and Filipe Toledo, all the dressings are based on the surfer’s style and heritage.
In a way they’re a little bit like a WSL jersey just with punk rock flair; so now you can support your favourite surfer without looking like a full-kit football wanker.
In this episode we visit Julian Wilson at his place Bali. We check out his boards, tees, and slow washing cycle, before cutting to a bit of surfing. Here’s hoping this tee isn’t the only yellow garment in Jules’ collection after Pipe.
Watch it up top, and if you want to wear Julian’s name on your back – or just a normal tee – slide over to the Hurley site here.
