Surf culture as we know it.
The socialisation of emotion and emotional responses in sport.
Donnelly and Young (1988)
Have discussed the significance of such expression and interaction involved in the construction and confirmation of identity in subculture.
From the social bonding and friendship elements to the much pre-surf (finding out where and when the best waves are breaking on the day) and après-surf interaction (sharing stories). This typographic response is the start of a visual collection around the secret language surfers, and an exploration into the relationships developed in the water or car parks.
Researching under the working title of ‘The sustainability of interaction within the coastal environment, through the lens of a wave.’ These instalments of graphic stoke aim to open a discourse with aesthetic happenings.
