dear everyone, just wanted to let you know what the huh has been going on with this blog lately. well i woke up one morning to put up a post and had noticed that the whole thing had wigged out on me for some reason. after failed attempts to get help from tumblr and techie buddies being baffled with the problem, i kinda found myself helpless and hopeless. i’m a bit of a perfectionist and it...

am so honoured to get my first cover! and couldn’t think of a better mag to kick it off than ‘Blue’ Magazine, Japan. I have so much respect for this mag - the humility and stoke they have for all facets of the surfing community has always impressed me - and experiencing it first hand has confirmed it even more. thanks so much Blue! and thanks to killer cat Sean Finnelley for...

a momentary glimpse through the eyes of Kyle Lightner
was a privilege to step into the world of Robin Kegel. he is one amazingly unique and rare individual; someone who lives in the moment and is carving his own path - on a whole other level. i believe he is a vital part of the the future and refinement of surfing and style. it truly was an honour.
