88 is your mate

Lots and lots of 88 activities poppin off! Start with a short shot entirely in California called SEPTIC TANK, NEW boards arrived in the States and Auz go get you one. The waves in Auz are so rich that its easy to shoot so enjoy the many other fruits of labor put together by the 88 crew:) I was fortunate enough to sneak a few waves in on the action when i was there May til July.

THE YARD

4th of July weekend in SoCal is a huge celebration of independence! We residence also were quite pleased to get a nice south swell that hit our window. Boneyards in Doheny Beach lit up and Levi Prairie and Andy Nieblas were kind enough to entertain the crowds with some extreme loggin! Check it out below via Mollusk Surf shop yew!!

Was in auz for 2 months, just got home sorry for the not posting but ima try and keep it going ! Couple grabbys from the epic day down at the yard:)

Tagazout and beyond

Off to Australia in a couple days, winter is starting over there and all the crowds are gone, just how i like it! In the meantime . . . was rummaging around my desktop found lots of images from morocco – for a project shot with the Rook called Portal – should be out soon. Heres a little peak into a coupla 35mm images that i just went through.

My buddy Kai Hing was there right as we were leaving, loved alot of is this edit, the sound and feel were really making me miss my time in morac. HEre is 6Dimension#Realm9

Woh was really lovin this pool. Lots more to play with, KSWave looks like a bore compared to this in a way. JOB & Gravy having a hell time in texas.

START TO FINISH Vissla

Gotta hang with one of my good friends and teammates Derrick Disney at Burchs shaping bay outside of Oceanside CA. Derrick has flown under the radar for years now, not to many people know that he is quite the accomplished glasser. As well as glassing his shapes have been getting better and better as he soaks in all the Burch Ju-ju and starts to morph his fishes into very similar designs as his mentor/the master Ryan B. Hard to get Diz to do audio or awkward kinda speaking stuff, but i know him well enough to get it out of him. Its easy to talk when it comes from the heart. And everything Derrick does comes from his heart. Nice to see some of Dizs weird flextails the past couple years, stoked to put it together for the VIssla guys and show you what i came up with! Derrick is surfin south OC Ca, GLand, and NorthernBaja.

RC stuff really cracks me up:) Just ran into this one.

This ZAF creation just might be the best thing ive ever seen. The innovative JIMBO.

OCEAN SONG

Winter in Santa Barbara usually means heeps of swells and lots of right handers. Last couple years ive been gone havnt had the chance to make it up there, but this year ive made a few trips. This trip in particular, i got a chance to finally meet and shoot with local hero Trevor Gordon. I must say, he surfs better than i thought, truly a wizard. His good buddy Simon Murdoch was out with him, and damn, he was quite an impressive surfer as well. The swell wasnt anything to write home about, but we made the best of it. Such a slow season for California, it was just nice to have a little bump out there to get a wiggle in. Thanks Mollusk for the stoke, enjoy Ocean Song:)

bung 88

Its been a fun ride getting our first shipment of 88 boards here in California. If any of you have bought a board from us here in the US – we thank you from the bottom of our hearts:) Our next shipment gets here right at the start of summer in June so ill keep you posted on that. Til then, ive been collecting clips here and there of my friends riding them, and we are lucky enough to have an Icon like Burch riding the boards, he’s on one of our 8;0s here. The teaser ‘bung’ is a prelude to a larger mini movie called ‘Septic Tank’ which will be coming out soon, shot entirely in the California region.

Grew the beard out for winter warmth – Took it down yesterday. Off to Hawaii on Monday for some upcoming projects – Pretty excited to get some VitaminD up me:)

couple kewl youtube clips caught my eye this week.

Lee-Ann – so cool : )

Love how plastic rubbish awareness is really starting to get into the public consciousness! The time has come that we start to clean it up. I think the most challenging part will be bringing this to 3rd world countries whom have no education the effects its having on our ecosystem.

 Get on the hemp train.

Wow, check this! Hempcrete and hemp insulations.

Man, the past 2 winters here at home in California have been a nightmare. The usual swells that move down from the North seem to always not do what they are supposed to. Turns out, there is a reason why. I know, and see, from first hand experience watching these lines in the sky regularly along our coast, and its just got me so fed up. So ive been educating myself over the past few years and feel like its time to speak out and share with you what ive discovered. Its apparently obvious they’ve been using these upper atmospherical spraying to have control over the weather.

When you control the weather, you can control the food, when you control the food, you control everyone. Please set aside some time to really get to the bottom of what is going on in our skies right in plain view above us. Not sure what we can do, these demons seem to be above the law, but at least if we bring some attention to it, maybe eventually we can come together to stop it. So much info in both of these videos, think it sums up what they are after and why they are doing it. Lets all pray that there are some people further up then us, little people, that are fighting the good fight. So sick of the bad guys winning, i think a just cause such as this, should galvanize all of us to stop what is happening. Its time for this to stop.

SPRING THING mollusk surf shop

The best thing about winter is when it comes to an end, unless its a pumping winter. In this case, winter has been a constant duldrum of disappointing conditions and non producing swells. Yeah, its been a tough one for us here in SoCal. I was so excited to spend time here at home this year, didnt really pan out as expected, but all you can do is pray that spring is better.

Couple of my favorite surfers/humans that live near me Levi Prairie and Jobin Bookout and we happened upon a nice little swell right before winter. I knew it might be our last chance to get some waves without the use of full rubber suits, so we were on it. THis day happened to be my birthday so i remember it well. Stoked to get some new talent in the mix, and Levi and Jobin sure do have a bit of yin and yang together when they surf. A little something for everyone, whether ur right or left foot forward think this might tickle ur fancy.

Thanks Mollusk Surf Shop, once again, for showcasing some unique surfing from a couple unknown local shredders:)

Loved this edit that Creed made!!
