Shamus Mercado was one of Hawaii’s top riders and characters around the late 80s and early 90′s. Best known for his Sandy Beach tube shots and big lip launching moves at Off The Wall and Pipeline. This ’89 cover of Bodyboarding mag featured a Shamus and Tom Boyle collaboration using Toms camera board. It  was well ahead of its time and gave the mag a futuristic look to it.
