THIS YEAR'S POSTER

Collecting the Surfer Joe Festivals' posters has become an interesting activity, and Fred Lammers designs were amazing since 2008. This year's work is in the hands of STEVE NAZAR, a designer who became famous in the late 80s for his illustrations of T&C Surf Design. His typical and unique style, symbol of the cool & wild surf spirit, have gone around the world in various forms, making the brand well known and Steve's characters legendary! We exclusively brought Steve to surf music having him doing some custom designs for Surfer Joe and this poster is one of them.
