The Water Pistols story technically began with a 12year old Stuey hand drawing his first template and transferring those curves to a rough, old blank. The ensuing 45years have seen a hell of a lot of boards built, countless waves, adventures, advances, the odd setback far outweighed by a myriad of golden moments and perhaps more importantly the crossing of paths and influential contributions of some amazing unique and talented individuals.
There’s no way however the rich tapestry of history of the cool squirting gun logo and where we came from could be recalled in one go, let alone be read in one sitting…. So we’ve created the water pistols zine! Here we will provide regular postings of not only our brands roots and what lead us here but also focus on the development of our surfboards, some crazy travel adventures and design updates. We’ll also share stories and interviews with some of the outstanding surfers, thinkers and characters from whom we’ve drawn inspiration all contributing valuable input to the core of our tale…. So welcome if you’re new to the brand or known us forever, happy surfing and stay tuned for our first instalment coming soon….
