When you were a kid, tearing out pages from SURFER (and all your other favorite action sports magazines) was about as close to interior design as you got. Hell, your old room at mom and dad’s probably still has tattered-edged images of Tom Curren flying down the line at J-Bay. Or maybe you were more of an Andy Irons kind of guy. Regardless, those images fulfilled the plight of all surfers: the subconscious desire to mind surf. Well, you’re a grown up now and that requires grown up decorations (or at least your girlfriend/wife does).

Started by Floris Gierman and Eugene Lai, the Aika Collective allows you to buy your favorite photo prints from a variety of photographers, including SURFER Staff Chris Burkard, Grant Ellis, and Zak Noyle. Each print is available in six sizes ranging from 8″ x 10″ to 30″ x 40″ and will fill that empty space on your wall perfectly.

Ditch the cheesy Ikea posters and dive into the surf collection.
