Item Description

In the Southern California surfing world, the Brawner family has a rich and deep heritage. From the Endless Summer soundtrack to President Nixon?s personal surfboard, from Sandells? 50?s instrumentals to Jane?s Addiction concerts, from balsa wood classics to state-of-the-art stand up paddleboards, this family has pioneered Southern California?s surf and music lifestyle since its inception. Father Danny and son Damian have been instrumental in shaping both the boards and local beach culture of coastal California. Damian has opened his own shops called Brawner Boards, maintaining the family heritage, while building the craft of the future.


Damian is a highly-respected surfboard and SUP builder and highly admired as a musician while mastering the drums and playing in a variety of musical groups. He?s also worked with some of the most celebrated musicians in rock history ? promoting concerts for Prince, James Brown, Jane?s Addiction, Van Halen, Eddie Money, and even Tony Bennett. Damian decided to do a collection of some of his favorite drummers and dear friends. ?This year , this board is dedicated to our dear friend and fellow drummer , Taylor Hawkins,? says Damian.


The board is titled ?There Goes My Hero?.
