Made by MadSteez is a small selection of carefully designed wetsuits, boardshorts and men’s apparel, made in collaboration with large-scale mural artist Mark Paul Deren aka MadSteez.
While filming for the campaign, Mason Ho sat down with the artist and asked… who is MadSteez? Press play below and find out…
“To celebrate Rip Curl’s 50th Anniversary and the release of the range, Mad Steez will be traveling to the 2019 Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, painting a large-scale mural on the front of the Rip Curl Torquay store. This mural will be Steez’s interpretation of an iconic Bells lineup, with the inclusion of some of surfing’s greatest World Champions – 3x World Champion Mick Fanning, 2x World Champion Gabriel Medina and 2x World Champion Tyler Wright.
Steez will be painting throughout the Rip Curl Pro waiting period, and encourages fans, media and those passing through come view the mural in progress. You will find him painting at the Rip Curl Torquay store from April 18 – April 22.
As this is truly a global collaboration, MadSteez will be spending the rest of the year painting murals in other major Rip Curl regions around the world. For the weekend of May 4th, you will find MadSteez painting the side of Rip Curl by Hansen’s in Swamis, California. Following the USA, look out for Steez somewhere in Europe…”
