This past weekend a very special Warhol Surf event took place at the Rose Room in Venice Beach, CA. The event celebrated Billabong’s new collaboration line with one of the most influential visual artists of our time, Andy Warhol and his foundation.

The new Billabong LAB project is focused on collaborating with artists, musicians, media, photographers and designers who influence surf culture today.
Many may not know that Warhol directed a surf film back in 1968 called San Diego Surf. Surf culture has always been a fascination of Warhol’s, so what better way to celebrate his creative spirit than by throwing a rad event at the funkiest place in the land; Venice, CA!
