Our guest this week has deep roots in Dana Point. He was trading tee shirt graphics for checks from marquee surf brands while he was still in high school. He flirted with pro-surfing, but with a background in fine arts and design, he had other opportunities to consider. Having early success and passion for design, he was quickly snatched up by Gotcha. Over the last 30 years he spent the majority of career designing iconic boardshorts prints and graphics for Quiksilver and Billabong. He created the Cosmic Creek Surf Contest and started the Dana Point Surf Club. He is now back to his roots, creating, designing, freelancing he services and focuses a lot of his time giving back to the community. We welcome to the show….. Eric “ED” Diamond.
