Jay Alders

Artist, Pt. Pleasant, New Jersey

Jay Alders has earned his reputation as one of the most talented surf artists of his generation.

When the Barr’s first trademarked “Feeling Swell” and decided to make tshirts, Jay was the first person they turned to.

He created the original blue surfer design. It is recognized as the first ever Feeling Swell shirt, and is still being sold at community events to this day. In fact, Feeling Swell’s headquarters is decorated with a 5 foot canvas print of the design. 

Jay’s work is recognized around the surf world. Thank you for being a leader in your community, Jay!
