Tom curren, one of the most respected and beloved surfers of his generation, has also turned in to a well rounded and talnted musician
Surf News, 15 October, 2012 - Through all these years surfing I have developed certain favorite surfers that I have grown to respect and admire – for their surfing ability or just because I liked them or what they had to offer in the way of a contribution to the lifestyle. Some for all those reasons. When I was younger I had my surf idols, such as Mickey Munoz, Mike Doyle and Phil Edwards. When I was at the top of my career there were contemporaries I held in high regard such as Gerry Lopez, Billy Hamilton and Jock Sutherland. Then, when that period was over, there were always young guys who came along that I thought had something special going on. Shaun Tomson, Mark Richards and Peter Townend are good examples.
