”My goal is to create a conduit – a spotlight on up and coming Artists,Athletes and conservationists & anyone who loves the ocean – all of which form part of the counterculture fabric. To collaborate and create a zodiac borne of a collective passion. A narrative that resonates with Skaters. surfers. artists. conservationists and anyone who cares for the ocean”. says Stephen
