Chris Gentile. Surfer. Artist. NY.
Chris Gentile owns the famous Brooklyn surf shop Pilgrim Surf + Supply (previously owner of NY surf shop Mollusk). The super storm that just rolled through NYC left the beaches at Rockaway in bad shape. Chris has been active in getting the area back in shape-still open for business and supporting the community. Gentile creates artwork using both sculpture and photography as his mediums, influenced by the ocean and surf. I really dig this thorough feature on Chris by The Scout Mag- beautifully shot and produced.
