For the past two-and-a-half years, Warshaw has devoted his entire life to building the biggest archive of surf culture history on the planet (though he hates the words “history” and “culture” and will be pissed I used ‘em here), and not only making it available to the public, but making it fresh, vibrant, and contemporary.
