The Surfindian is one of the surf/art galleries in Pacific Beach, San Diego. Featuring surf and art related items, the place is both shop and gallery and is located only a block away from the beach. The people in this area all seem like surfers and the beach town is filled with a laid-back atmosphere.
Surfindian presented a one-night only art benefit hosted by the Mattson Family. It’s a silent auction to help the Mattsons recover from some gnarly medical troubles. The Mattson 2 is a stylish duo formed by twin borhers, and famous for their jazz unit collaborated with a great skater and guiter player Ray Barbee. They did a live performance “Ray Barbee meets The Mattson 2”, which was totally impressive even for my second time experiencing one of their live sets.
The exhibition showcased many great surf/art works made by a lot of surf/artists including Yusuke Hanai, Andy Davis, an owner of a music label Galaxia and a producer of “Ray Barbee meets The Mattson 2”, Thomas Cambell and more. So many people came to the event and they enjoyed themselves until midnight.
