Years ago, I got my start as an artist painting production surfboards in factories for some of the best surfboard makers in the world.
Back then, I had to master the craft of spraying boards with air guns and airbrushes. It is a more technical job than artistic and in some ways very limiting. I wanted to express my art more fully, and so I found a better way to paint surfboards by developing techniques using water based paint pens on top of glassed surfboards.
I soon became known for bringing a new style of painting to the surfboard market which was painting on the glass by hand with Uni Posca paint pens. It changed the way surfboards were painted forever. These techniques allowed me more creativity and gave others the ability to paint their own surfboards as well.
All of these years later, with the knowledge of tens of thousands of boards painted in every way possible, I was excited to revisit and improve upon my own airbrushing style.
This restoration project was the perfect catalyst to do something really special, up-cycle old #surfboards and keep them out of the landfill. I loved it.

- Drew Brophy Art StudiosSurf Lifestyle Artist, 1971 - present
Drew Brophy has been a professional artist for over 25 years. It’s his job to make things look cool.
As a young surfer, Drew’s career took off when he started applying his edgy artwork onto surfboards. He became known for changing the way that surfboards were painted, using techniques that he developed with water-based paint pens.
In the mid-1990s, Drew expanded his art to design many different things, like skateboards, t-shirts, wakeboards, and just about anything. Having the opportunity to experiment with many different surfaces and products allowed Drew to grow tremendously as an artist.
Drew’s inspiration comes from the adventures of traveling the globe with his wife and son.
Drew’s vision is “to inspire generations of people to live the life of their dreams.” He works towards that vision through being the example and showing the world the good life through his artwork.
