He applies this combination to most of his boards, and always rich in colour, Jimmy’s designs look like rainbows at play.
Whether it’s a fluffy, fluorescent cloud or his signature, psychedelic bird, Jimmy’s free flowing expression breathes life into any canvas
“I like to think, as an artist, that what I create is only something positive for surf culture, and I see Varuna doing the same,” he said.
That artistry is massively influenced by our dear Mother Nature and for Jimmy, surfing with a Varuna board is a full circle feeling.
“To walk with a timber board under my arm and then go into the water feels like: a tree, the water… you. And it actually turns like my polyurethane board and that’s when I was like, “‘Ok, I wanna be a part of it.’”
His devotion to bringing sustainability into surf culture inspires us daily with his deep connection to the earth, ocean and elements. A devotion that’s not just for himself, but for the lives of his sons.
“We’re on a mission to make surfing more sustainable now and into the future, because what we leave behind, our kids inherit.”
It’s Jimmy’s commitment to making our planet a more beautiful place, whether it’s with his art or environmental practices, that has us feeling blessed to welcome this cruisey legend into our Varuna family tree.
So, if you spot a colourful, psychedelic-looking wooden board in the lineup, make sure to say g’day to the legend himself, Jimmy McMillan and be sure to check out our latest ambassador video here.
