Aloha and Farewell John Severson

May 31, 2017

“I first met John Severson in 1960 when he came into my surf shop selling his new magazine ‘The Surfer’.  In 1961 he designed this ad for me and in the next 15 years we placed 61 ads in his magazine. John became a close personal friend, he was a good guy, a good surfer and a great artist.  Rest In Peace John.  You will be missed.”

An Interview with Christian Marcher of Progressive Surf Academy

 

You’d be hard pressed to find someone more stoked on surfing than our friend and local ripper Christian Marcher. Big boards, small boards, soft tops, surf mats, hand planes, you name it and this guy rides them all at a very elite level. The best part about Christian is that he is always the nicest guy in the water and he pushes the boundaries of what you think is possible on a surfboard every time he paddles out.

With over 30 years of surfing experience, Christian has built Progressive Surf Academy into one of the most well-respected surf schools anywhere on the West Coast. He and his team use a very unique approach that dives deep into ocean safety, technique, and ethics in the lineup that you don’t see anywhere else. Christian delivers a premium surf experience for all ages and has been a part of the Bing family for a few years, so we sat down to chat and learn a bit more about the man and his love for the ocean.
