What is Surf Skate Music Culture?
Surf Skate Music Culture’s (SSMC) main goal is to generate a stronger heart beat for the surf, skate, music, and the cultural arts scenes. SSMC is made of several different talents such as
producers, editors, artist, surfers, and skaters. We are here to support the artist of this era. It is also our goal to give artists, musicians, surfers, and skaters another outlet to express
themselves. As we continue our efforts to expand we support the underground music, art, and extreme sports scenes of our local and regional communities.
Surf Skate Music Culture was formed in October 2010 and formed an official L.L.C in November of the same year. Surf Skate Music Culture has become a way of life for many as for it is forged from the four things that define our personalities and characters. This is the secret to how you stay young at heart. Express yourselves and your interests. Do not be afraid to be creative or daring. Today is different then all the days behind you because it could be your last. So go live now. Deep inside you know this is how you feel. We know this because it’s our culture and it’s your culture.
