Stance Surf Legends: Occy, Pottz, Archy, Fletcher And The Toms
The seminal, and now wearable, work of Jeff Divine.
Our sport is a visual feast. And it’s a sad fact that the digital age (and its short memory) will be responsible for losing some of surfing’s best moments over the last decade and the coming one. But there was a time, the golden age of surf photography, when moments were easier to immortalise. And perhaps no one has captured more of these enduring moments than Jeff Divine.
Visionary and Legend are two liberally-used terms, but Jeff is deserving of both. He’s responsible for some of our culture’s greatest ever photographs – many of which you’ll be familiar with (even if you didn’t know he shot them). And it’s these photos that form the basis for Stance’s new collection, Surf Legends.
The Tom Carroll Snap at Pipe. The Occy kickstall in the Sunset bowl. Images that are as incredible now as they were when they were clicked. The carefully-chosen team of surfers featured in the collection also include Martin Potter, Matt Archbold, Christian Fletcher, and Tom Curren.
Bravo to Stance for celebrating these moments in yet another medium (this time, a comfortable one).
