Slyde Art Syndikit New Artist Scott Metzner

I'm 29 years old.  I have been working in the surf industry since I was 15 years old and have never left the industry. I graduated high school in 2002 and then immediately started working full time at the ...Lost clothing retail outlet and surfboard factory that was known as San Clemente Surf Co. And was learning to paint boards with paint pens from the main ...Lost artists (Drew Brophy, Sean Spoto, and Chad Crothers).  I worked there for about four years and started learning to airbrush from another airbrush artist by the name of Suds. When I was learning to airbrush there I met Timmy Patterson and from there, I came to work with Timmy Patterson managing his entire business and painting boards for his company. I have now been working with Timmy Patterson for the last six years.  You can read more about Scott and his work here.  Scott has done a few boards for us, and they are on show at the Timmy Patterson’s San Clemente Shop.
