A series of pop-up art shops curated by renowned Hurley artist Craig Stecyk, the Hurley Printing Press launches today in partnership with BL!SSS Magazine and Agenda. According to Stecyk, “The Hurley Printing Press is an interactive atelier where athletes, artists and the community come together to pursue explorations of craft hand printing on posters, T’s and whatever else pops up.” The first Hurley Printing Press is located at the Livery Design Gruppe in downtown Huntington Beach, California, open today and operating throughout the US Open of Surfing. During the week the space will be home to the six Hurley Printing Press artists — including Jersey Joe, Dalek, Madsteez, Craig Stecyk, Tim Hendricks, and the Hurley Art Department — and each day a featured artist will host the curated space, displaying his art and hand-printing tees of his own designs with a Charles Brand etching press. All tees and prints are designed exclusively for the Hurley Printing Press and will be available for $30 exclusively at each Hurley Printing Press location, followed by a limited run online.

Hurley professional athletes will also be on hand, joining the artists each day to greet fans and help print the custom tees. Participating Hurley athletes will include the following: Julian Wilson (2012 US Open Champion), Lakey Peterson (2012 Women’s US Open Champion), Carissa Moore (youngest ever 2011 World Champion at the age of 18), Jay Adams Legendary Dogtown Skateboarder), Conner Coffin 2012 US Open Junior Champion), Curren Caples (2013 X Games Gold Medalist), Greyson Fletcher (Professional Skateboarder), Kolohe Andino (Professional Surfer), Yadin Nicol (Professional Surfer), Nat Young (Professional Surfer), and Michel Bourez (Professional Surfer).
