My name is Jeff Fairbanks- but most people know me as The Triumph Project, @thetriumphproject on Instagram, since the completion of my personal journey which consisted of 21 half iron distances, in 21 days, in 21 different cities.

What some people don’t know about me, is that I’ve always loved art. Growing up in Southern California, I loved drawing as a kid, and then as I got older, I began designing artwork on my surfboards. I always strived to give my boards a little different look, I like to think of it as a “clean edge” 

Upon entering the sport of triathlon, I found my art interest piqued when being surrounded by seas of athletes during events, as everything seemed so similar.

I figured if we’re going to suffer together in these distance events, then we might as well do so in style!

Take a look at some of my personal designs, created in partnership with Zoot. See if it makes sense for you to sharpen your “edge”- if so, it would be an honor to see you carry one of these designs along your own personal journeys of Triumph.

In light and positivity my friends- I hope to see you out there along the way!
