Rick Sharp is one of my absolute favorite artists when it comes to vintage surfing posters. Sharp grew up in Houston, Texas. After receiving a scholarship from winning a stateside competition as “most talented” moved to California.  At age 19 his career took of getting a lot of publicity after winning two major poster competitions. For over 10 years living in Santa Barbara Rick created posters, designs and calendars in his cool 60’s style.

During his twenties Sharp worked with a lot of musicians, creating posters for Leon Russel, Melissa Manchester, Andrea Crouch and more. Rick’ s first contact with surfing was working with Hang Ten sportswear, which helped launching his international career.

Rick later moved to Hawaii where he worked with pastels, brushes and palette knives and bright colors in contrast to his earlier work. Today Sharp sharp has a wide collection of vintage surf and travel posters published in Hawaii and all over the world.

Why Surfing Posters?

Because I love surfing, everything about it, the early mornings, sand between my toes, the anticipation of your next surf. I grew up in Sweden were I started surfing in a thick wetsuit, gloves and hood in small messy waves. Now I live on the Gold Coast, Australia and love every moment, surfing as much as I can.

This website is dedicated to surfing, surf posters and surf art. Enjoy!
