About

Tony Caramanico, famed Montauk-based surfer, created a life around surfing since the first day he picked up a board in 1963- a day he fondly recalls. Though his surfing has taken him to far-flung surf breaks around the globe, Montauk has been Caramanico's home base since he moved there in 1971. After trying his hand at a number of businesses, Caramanico decided in his late 30s to get back into surfing "in a major way," finding his niche with longboarding. Caramanico has won a number of regional competitions, and in 1991, he placed first in a professional longboard competition in New Jersey. After taking top honors at the Legend's Classic in Costa Rica, he earned his own line of surfboards under the auspices of famed surfer Greg Noll. Caramanico continues to be an active leader in the Montauk surf community today, surfing regularly and teaching lessons. Since the early 1980s, Caramanico has been chronicling his extensive travels into daily journals that combine words, original art, pictures and magazine clippings. Five years ago, his journals were discovered for their artistic value and were transformed into vibrant pigment prints and stretched canvas prints. These images have also been transferred onto beautifully detailed surfboards, which are valued for both their craftsmanship and their artistic qualities. Warren Padula aptly summarizes the rich pictorial records found within Caramanico's prints: It's a personal history of who came for lunch, where the party is, the surf, the shopping list, the friends and girlfriends, and it's also a history of the world as it filtered back to the beach; the hostages, the Challenger explosion, echoes of a fire 8,000 miles away.
