Let The Sun Shine!

Robb Havassy’s Scenes of Summer

Written by SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel


Surf Artist Robb Havassy knows how to celebrate the sun!


His electrifying paintings are an homage to the sun and surfing.

A Southern California native and long-time surfer, Havassy has turned his love of the ocean into memorable paintings that capture the intensity of nature and the relationship of man to the environment.



One of the most celebrated artists in the surfing community, Havassy’s works reflect the joy of surfing and the beauty of the ocean.


SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel always feel like smiling when we see Robb Havassy’s art.

The vibrant colors and bold strokes draw you into each painting and inside a technicolor world where the weather forecast is always “Sunny.”


Robb Havassy’s book Surf Story is a classic – a massive 440-page collection of surf art and stories from 88 of the surf culture’s most influential artists, writers, photographers and iconic figures.


In August the sequel, Surf Story V2, will continue Havassy’s epic project to archive and showcase the surf art and stories that define the sport and the world’s surfing culture.

“Surf Story” does a great job telling the truth, both through story and art, about what is so special about being a surfer.”

– Bob Hurley (surfer, founder Hurley)
