In the late 90s the surf brand ‘Third Wave ’99’ was the hottest thing on the beaches of Florida…..and then it was gone….
What caused one of the biggest surf brand brands to just disappear?
Poor management? Lies? Deception? Supernatural forces? Murder?
Recently our friends at scout comics acquired the rights to resurrect the cool stylings of the brand and have taken this as an opportunity to tell the story behind the controversial late 1990’s Florida surf brand!
Third Wave ’99 follows surf shop/brand owners Rob Cutler and Jack Reed, along with hotheaded young teenager Matt Hurley. The popular surf shop doubles as a support group that helps troubled individuals use surfing as a replacement for other negative self-destructive habits. Young Matt’s temper has not only hampered his promising college baseball opportunities, but could his actions have been the catalyst for events that ultimately lead to the disappearance of Third Wave entirely?
