Sagas of Shred

Cory Lopez for …Lost

Greetings, Shredderz! For all the stuff I write about the 60s, 70s and 80s, the decades that resonate most with me are the late 90s and early 2000s. I don’t think it has been long enough for us to really put that era in proper perspective, but I’ll always have a soft spot…

Greenough Edge Board Stubby by Bob Duncan

Greetings, Shredderz! There’s a cool Wilderness Surfboards George Greenough Edge Board stubby that’s currently on Craigslist in Santa Cruz. All the photos here are from the original listing, which can be found here. To me it’s interesting to see all the different variations on Greenough’s famous edge board design. This one was shaped…

“The Day Before Yesterday” feat. John John

Greetings, Shredderz! Sometimes, writing about surfing is very easy. Take, for instance, the following scenario: John John Florence drops a new edit on his YouTube channel. All you need to do is copy the link to the video, paste it into a post, and then make sure whatever ensuing word salad you whip…

Greetings, Shredderz! It’s almost the end of the month and that means it’s time for me to share some social media highlights. Now this is a proper quiver shot! I spy at least four Takayamas in there, with some pretty old school looking Hawaiian Pro Designs laminates on the rails. There’s a Sunset…

Kapono has charted a fascinating career path, and apparently his varied interests also apply to his equipment choice in the water. “Open Rhythms” features Kapono on a dizzying number of different sleds, whether it’s…

The Bruce Movie

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! I’ll always have a soft spot for late 90s and early 2000s Volcom, and I will continue to insist — completely unsolicited, of course — that the brand’s heyday is still underrated. This isn’t exactly a hot take, but damn, Volcom really did some creative and unique…

Donald Takayama Joel Tudor Model

Greetings, Shredderz! I’m stoked to be coming at you today with a board that I shockingly have not written up before (or, more likely, I wrote it up years ago and just can’t find the original post): the Donald Takayama Joel Tudor Model. Takayama helped guide Joel Tudor during the early parts of…

A Tribute to Art Brewer

Sadly, Art Brewer passed away earlier this month. He leaves behind a legacy as one of the greatest surf photographers ever. What I love about Brewer’s work is the way he complemented the action shots with incredible portraits. I’m also struck by the sheer length of Brewer’s career. He got his start in…
