Venom P. Stinger is the creator and curator of @surfads, an Instagram account celebrating the best and worst of eighties to noughties surf culture flotsam and jetsam. Trawling the back alleys and dead ends of old magazine piles and the internet, Stinger delivers poorly framed but highly nostalgic snapshots from a time that surfing desperately wants to forget.
