Photojournalist, Surfer and one very Curious Cat
Meet Gabe Sullivan: owner of what is arguably the most iconic rustbucket within the world of surfing. His two-tone green VW Bus with a blue racing stripe first burst onto the scene in the pages of Surfer Magazine in 1997. Gabe Sullivan—aka Curious Gabe—a seasoned writer and photographer for the fabled publication, lives in Laguna Beach, California and continues to drive his trusty ’72 VW Bus on assignments for Surfer, and the myriad of other creative media projects he stays perpetually involved with.
You might also be familiar with Gabe’s retro-surf style inspired photography work in the UK’s Men’s File Magazine, or his coverage of emerging art, style and surf scenes in the pages of Tokyo based Glide Magazine. Or, since he is also a bit of a globetrotter, maybe you’ve bumped into him while surfing an obscure reef break somewhere far off the beaten path.
Gabe is among a rare few who figured out how to combine a passion for surfing, media, and style to make a living doing what he loves. Between running his own production company (Point and Shoot Productions), writing his monthly column and directing photography and film projects, Gabe stays busy.
He also stays curious.
Gabe has been asking the questions we didn’t even know we had, and aside from earning a great nickname, this curiosity fuels him. He is currently filming new Curious Gabe episodes from out there on the wide-open road. Keep your eyes peeled for video updates, where Gabe gives us a front seat view from behind the wheel of his magic green bus.
