Item Description

Fascinated by the relentless love/hate experience living with one foot in the city and one foot in the sea, Los Angeles based artist, Damian Fulton creates a uniquely original “urban surf” vision instantly relatable to those persevering in today’s overstimulated, pop-industrialized world. Fulton launched his art career as a cartoonist and illustrator creating counterculture comic strips like “The Shred Brothers” and “Radical Rick”, and painting surf posters for Ocean Pacific. After doing time at Ogilvy & Mather Advertising as Senior Partner Creative Director, and Marvel Productions as VP Head of Creative Development, he’s returned to his first love with a vengeance.

“Damian Fulton does not airbrush surfing to make it more palatable for the masses. His paintings are unlikely to make it into a pair of hibiscus-print boardshorts anytime soon.” — Marcus Sanders, Surfline."

The board is titled “Beach Memory”.

Item Special Note

Kindly note, that packing, shipping, and handling are not included - winning bidders are responsible for pick up and/or shipment of their board, including costs to package/ship. Boards can be picked up at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel or the purchaser can arrange for shipping. If shipped, we often work with a local UPS in Dana Point as the carrier. They have years of experience packaging/shipping our surfboards and do a wonderful job. Before you bid, you may inquire with our UPS Partner at (949) 248-9150 ext.0 to get a quote of how much shipping to your address will cost, as price varies due to location. If you arrange shipment with our UPS partner, we will handle the pick-up arrangement with them but will need to know your shipping address and phone number. They will be in touch directly to confirm packaging/shipment costs. The hotel does not manage this. If you prefer to use a different carrier, you will need to arrange pick up directly with the carrier from the resort and next steps.

Boards will be available for pick-up and shipping beginning Monday, January 8, 2024. Boards must be picked up no later than Wednesday, January 31, 2024.
