• Otis Carey Joins the Team!

Billabong proudly welcomes Coffs Harbor-based surfer and artist Otis Carey to the team.

With his unpredictable surfing and talented eye for art and fashion design, Otis will infuse his own traditional indigenous culture with contemporary Australian surf.

“I paint contemporary indigenous art,” he told Stab. “The way I can best explain it is, it’s a broken-down form of traditional symbols and stories that aren’t giving all of it away but just enough for people to understand. I think it’s super important to be able to have that outlet for other people to experience.”

Otis is no stranger to the Billabong crew, already good mates with team rider Creed McTaggart, filmer Toby Cregan and creative genius Steve Gorrow. He’s excited to work with all of the Billabong team on new creative collections and film projects.

“They’ve given me quite a bit of freedom so it’ll be really interesting to get into creating with them,” Otis says.

Keep an eye out for great things to come from Otis and Billabong in the months ahead.
