Tracks – Novem­ber 1996

Ozzie Wright is a mas­ter of cre­ative rein­ven­tion. In the wa­ter he helped pi­o­neer a punk, free surf­ing ap­proach that utilised short, wide boards, a stretched stance and a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude to trans­form any lineup into a jump­ing cas­tle. Be­tween high-alti­tude surf ses­sions Ozzie nur­tured his tal­ents as a pain­ter and artist while mak­ing time to play gui­tar with reg­u­lar out­fit, Goons of Doom. More than 20 years after Ozzie donned the Elvis wig and the jump­suit for this In­sight ad, he is still treat­ing life and line­ups like one big fun park. Long live the Ozzie spirit of unadul­ter­ated com­mit­ment to fun and cre­ativ­ity and bring back the ads, which take a few risks.
