Starting the week with yet another ‘People are Awesome’ film… but believe me, it is worth watching. The clips here are better quality, more interesting angles and the music much more in line with what I’d want for a soundtrack to these insane dare devils. Most clips seem genuine too.
One of the great R&B and deep soul voices passed away yesterday 73 years of age. Listen to the tune and send a thought for Etta James.
This piece in his series ‘Space Matters’ by Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal is a fresh example of reshaping the space around us I think.
As promised… here is a look at Jason Salsa Salisbury’s first surf on the finless board that Deus made.
The end of the 60′s was maybe THE most interesting of times in surf history if you ask me. Personality, innovation and style were among the things that sparked the transition in board designs.
I found this board from Deus the other day and it instantly caught my attention and put a smile on my face.
In the last few years we have seen a bit of comeback of that psychedelic progression. Inspired by Derek Hynd and his finless surfing, this board shaped by the creative people in the Deus temple of Bali is nothing short of inspiration from fangtails, wingers, channels etc. that we saw back in the days.
Soon to come Jason ‘Salsa’ Salisbury surfs the finless beauty for the first time.
The past couple of weeks have been a showcase of moody weathers outside our office in Manly. In an attempt to break away a bit of only posting videos, I am going to start a somewhat of my photography portfolio from the skies.
First off with thunder and lightning because lately we have been seeing some brutal light shows both out to sea and around town. A few times I actually caught the bolts hit hard just blocks away from our house. Voila!
I have to admit that no few seconds that I have ever seen filmed before is this heavy. Really groundbreaking footage yet again from Teahupoo. I don’t even have words for how dedicated these “hell men” are that let these monsters move em down and swallow them whole.
Adidas has released this stylish skateboard film from Montreal, Canada. Nice environments, nice footage and good skaters.
A charming stop-motion animation by Sean Ohlenkamp & Lisa Ohlenkamp that reminds us of how nice it is with “real” book stores.
The surf hipsters of today can get away with pretty much anything they want. Is artsy fartsy retro style surf films something we can get enough of? Not if you ask me… Polyester is a film by Jack Coleman, starring California hipster Al Knost. Get the film here
