Surfer/Artist Pat Tobins has led an enviable life. He was south of the border before Peterson and Naughton let the cat out of the bag and before Petacalco got all blocked up. He spent some time in Mexico, Hawaii and his native California with a surfboard(sometimes home made) and a paintbrush. Here he shares some of his experiences with us via beautiful paintings and some great anecdotes.
