A Tribute to Shawn "Barney" Barron

A Tribute to Shawn "Barney" Barron

Shawn “Barney” Barron, one of Santa Cruz’s finest, taken too soon. Innovative aerialist, big-wave charger, artist, unforgettable character, was an integral part of Volcom’s early days who helped push the brand and style of what Volcom represents. Rest in peace, Barney, we will miss you.

"Barney was the original artist, free surfer, big wave charger and all around best human ever."
"The most epic manoeuvres you'd ever see on a wave."

Read Tom Carey's remembrance of Barney over on Stab Mag and check out some of Tom's Barney photos from the archive below.
