This vintage surf tee features the iconic work of artist Steve Nazar, the creative force behind Hawaii’s T&C Surf Designs. His group of cartoon characters were known as Thrilla Krew and collectively popularized the surf brand based in Pearl City, Oahu. The tee has aged great over the years, preserving that old school magic for more to come. Features double sided print, lovely cotton feel, and big eye-catching graphics.

Thrilla Krew AKA Da’ Boys included Thrilla Gorilla, Joe Cool, and The Caveman. Each character was inspired by real life surfers like Dane Kealoha, Shaun Tomson, and Ken Bradshaw. Thrilla Krew mysteriously vanished in the late 1980s, so this tee being from 1988, may have been one of last original pieces produced before the krew left the surf scene.

Fits like a modern unisex adult Extra Large. Double sided graphic, larger graphic on back, graphic on sleeves, several repairs throughout, see pics
