Los Angeles Surf

So, um, yeah. Here is a friendly holiday concept from the nastiest man on the boards. Its for a fantasy football team and plays up on the surfers heritage that LA has a lot of. Colors are derived from Sun and Water.

Nice work.

1. The helmet logo is Burger King Kingly Ginormous.

2. The pants striping is ho-hum. Maybe some wavy stripes, since they are the Surf, and not the Art-Deco-Buildings-upside-down

I think he's goin for a surfboard on the pants.

Anyway, awesome work Josh. The design is great, as usual, but the color combo puts it over for me.

Very nice, Mingsy. I love the colors, and the physical design of the uniform fits well with the name and the overall package. The logo is pretty clever without being too gaudy or overblown. I like this one better than your Racers concept, to be honest. But that's just me.

Nice job. The only thing I would suggest is to consider making the surfboard/football in the primary and helmet logos are little shorter (right to left, that is) so it looks more like a football while still also looking like part/one end of a surfboard (at least I THINK that is what you were going for).

Im lovin this concept, but two things. First off im really not feelin that main logo on the Helmet, good for the jerseys but i think you should stick with the LA script on the helmet, and second, where can you surf in Los Angeles, the Aqua Ducts? :P I think that they should either be from SD or some other Surf Town in So Cal, maybe Huntington Beach.

I love the concept, but living in Southern California, 10 minutes from the beach, I think using Huntington Beach (Surf City, USA) would be better than Los Angeles. I can understand the mix up by people who don't know the geographical dynamics of Southern California, but no big deal. It just was nagging me and I can see it being the Huntington Beach Surf or the HB Surf, or if you wanted something a little longer you could use The Surf down at Huntington, because I've heard that plenty of times talking to people who surf around here! But good, solid job! I'd love to see it with HB instead of LA. Then it'd be Totally Awesome Dude! :P

a few MINOR suggestions

make the pants stripe a full-on surf board...it's a fantasy concept, might as well go over the top

the number should be 10...as in "hang 10"

is santa barbara a place where much surfing takes place?? if so, i'd suggest the "santa barbara surf" as a name...i'm big on alliteration

otherwise, great job! love the colors

I like using 10 for hang 10! Yeah go with the surf board too! And as far as whether Santa Barbra is big on surfing, I don't know as that is about three hours north of me, and my friend who lives near there is in Guatamala currently and I won't see her for a few months. I'll get back to you on that in a few months! :D I presume they surf up there. I do know that Santa Cruz (Go UC Santa Cruz Bananna Slugs!) is fighting with Huntington Beach for the Surf City name. Yes, we are talking about Santa Cruz filing a formal complaint with the US Commerce Department about HB using the "Surf City" name. I just have to say, take a chill pill dudes!

The surf in Huntington Beach absolutely kills the surf in Santa Cruz. On top of that, some of the best surfers in the world have come from Huntington beach and the areas surrounding it, i think in fact its only second to Hawaii.
