Mick joined the Creatures team as a whippet-thin, bleached eyebrow, cheeky little grommet. He’s now one of the most respected icons of surfing ever. 3x world titles, overcoming physical and mental obstacles, plus a power-surfing game like no one are his signatures. We’ll always remember him for his no-nonsense feedback though, like “nah, that traction is sh*t, let’s go with this grid pattern.”
Everyone knows Steph Gilmore shreds in the water. 7x world titles are proof of that. If you get to know her, you’ll also realise she shreds on the guitar, gets her competitive streak from battling two older sisters for the last bread roll at dinner, and has an artistic streak that shines through her fashion and surfing sense alike. Something she also puts into her feedback on signature designs.
Italo is like surfing’s Batman and Joker rolled into one - fearless in a battle, throws chaotic fun at every opportunity, is a hero to all, yet nemesis to his opponents when the heat is on. He flew, tunneled, ripped and hacked his way to his first world title in 2019 with true comic flair. We’re so stok-ed to have played a small role in that and love having Italo as part of the Família de Criaturas.
