Showing at this week’s San Diego Surf Film Festival is this apparent gem, Through the Whiskey Barrel: A Film About Surfing In Scotland. The film will be shown on Saturday evening, May 12, but there is a ton of good programs happening all weekend long. Take a look at the link above…
Always good on a holiday to visit a legend. Seth Epstein catches up with Shawn Stussy to see what the legendary fashion and culture icon is up to. Surfboard shaping is the name of the game in Santa Barbara. Back to the roots. And opening a shop in Tokyo soon…
This is why we don’t swim. Waves like this in Tahiti stress us out. Humans weren’t made to do this, but alas, we conquer most of the time. From the Billabong site, you got 30 feet of wave, a human, riding water, and surviving. Mega.
There is a great new book out, Jeff Divine’s Surfing Photographs from the Eighties, that was published by the great boutique publisher, T Adler Books out of Santa Barbara. Nowness just posted a really nice interview with Divine, but mainly, there is a great gallery of photos from all of Divine’s great surf photos. Fantastic stuff.
If you ever wanted to know where famous people who surf or are involved in the surf industry surf, then you should click on here for the T Magazine’s report. And what we learned this morning is that there is a big scene popping up in Japan. Surf Japan style, we look forward to it.
The soccer brand Umbro is about to release their Umbro Vs line, and they collaborated with one of our favorite artists, Todd “REAS” James on a animated short commercial. It is sort of a remix on the idea of five-a-side football in England and the surf and beach soccer culture in Huntington Beach, CA. Via slamxhype.
Saturdays NYC is a surf shop right in the heart of SoHo. Many of you may have gone there and purchased a latte, some Spring Courts, a pair of Stronghold denim, and a surfboard. Maybe you sat out in the back and drank that espresso beverage. We saw on their blog that they had this nicely shot video, called Surf NYC, and there is this little other thing on there that says it was “A 4K short for YouTube.” Whatever, it is cool.
