Dear designers, we are looking for simplicity, less colors, professional look and please, it is not necessary to place windsurfer there. If you look at known names in boarding industry, you will easily spot that they logos hardly contain any windsurfer, surfer, kiteboarder, skimboarder or similar.
Thanks!

Dear designers,
Below please find some links to logos and styles that I like very much. Might be an inspiration:

LOGO CAN BE SORT OF OLD-SCHOOL SURFING :)
I also like billboards from the 60's, that type of drawing is really cool.

I also attach links to flowers/plants that usually accompany surfing logos:

http://www.brandsoftheworld.com/search/80428513/145368.html

That's it! If you have any questions, please post me a note!
thanks,
Maciej

And here is one more link, where major surf brands with logos are listed. Please aim for simplicity. One crucial elemen2t such as WAVE f.ex and remaining around it - that's the idea.
