1970s Venice Beach

As the Active Team gets ready to hit Bells Beach, Australia, for the 50th Anniversary of the Rip Curl Pro, we thought it would be fun to share some inspiring pics we stumbled upon on the Selvedge Yard. From the collection of David Scott, Venice Beach, California, truly embodied the spirit of surf in the 70s. Equal parts magic and “we dont give a F&*%”, you can almost smell the coconut oil from here. Surfs up brah!
