Hi my name is Aaron Loyd, i’ve been making art since my earliest memories. I began working with foam and fiberglass in the mid 60’s, and established my own label in 1968. I experimented a little with custom cars and motorcycles thru the 70’s, while still producing surfboards at the same time. In 1984, after a year on crutches due to a car accident, I returned to the ocean. This time it was with swim fins and a camera. The next 15 yrs. I spent travelling the world as a staff photographer for both Surfing and Surfer magazine. In 2001 I stepped out of professional photography, and took a job as a surfboard shaper for Al Merrick. During this time I really began to pursue fiberglass sculpture. My first fish was made in 2000 from a broken surfboard I found on Banzai beach, Oahu. The sea horses and turtles came after 2010. All pieces are constructed from recycled foam and fiberglass. I currently have a studio at Loyd Surfboards in Grover Beach, Ca., and a studio at Eric Arakawa Surfboards in Waialua, Oahu, Hi. I hope you enjoy my art and website. –Aaron.
