Club of the Waves is a labour of love I founded back in 2006. It's an award-winning international surfing, surf art, photography and culture website. As a founder and editor I built the world's largest community for surf art. At its peak it received a quarter of a million page views a month and grew a Facebook fan base of 125,000+ people. As a designer and developer it acted as a playground to learn and experiment, be it code, SEO or analytics. Professionally it formed the backbone of my career for a long time. Personally it’s one of the things I’m most proud of.
Club of the Waves played a big hand in saving my career! This short story reminisces about how I nearly quit design! I’ve come a long way since then. It could have been a different story!
