Today iconic streetwear designer and friend of GA Shawn Stussy was inducted into the Surfers Hall of Fame. Most teens and street wear enthusiasts would only associate Shawn's name with the iconic street wear brand he built and sold, Stussy. Since selling Stussy in 1996 Shawn has spent his days raising his kids and back in the shaping bay. Shawn started his career in a shaping bay in Laguna Beach as a young boy. From there he started his brand Stussy which ended up changing the perception of surfers and the way surfers dressed. More recently on the clothing front Shawn created a new brand S/Double out of Japan.
To celebrate this momentous occasion Shawn shaped a few custom surfboards and did a limited collection of tee's that are only available at Huntington Surf and Sport in Huntington Beach. If you're a Shawn Stussy fan get down there and get your hands on a piece of history.
Congrats Shawn and thanks for all the inspiration.
