80s Stussy Surfboard: Back to the Future

As far as I can tell, Shawn Stussy’s work isn’t displayed at Art Basel, or sold by big auction houses with billionaires on speed dial. Every once in a while he’ll shape a bunch of boards and then sell them all at once out of a friend’s backyard in Laguna Beach. I don’t…

Slamming Scottish Slabs featuring Mason Ho

I can’t remember the last time I watched — much less enjoyed — a surf edit that kicks off with four or five absolutely crushing wipeouts. But if there’s anyone who has a gift for making pain look fun, it’s Mason Ho. He’s been releasing a series of edits focused on a mysto…

Shaun Tomson for Astrodeck

Greetings, Shredderz! Today we’ve got a young Shaun Tomson in an early Astrodeck ad. I believe the ad predates Astrodeck’s classic logo and designs. Here’s another early Astrodeck ad from 1982, featuring none other than Gerry Lopez. By comparison, here’s an Astrodeck ad from 1985, whose font and traction pads are what I…

Happy 90th Birthday Renny Yater

Renny Yater has been making surfboards longer than NASA has been sending people to space. He started off in the 50s and last time I checked, Renny is still going strong. I don’t think he hand shapes much any more, but that’s just a minor detail when you’re looking at a solid seven…

“Water III” by Morgan Maassen

Greetings, Shredderz! Basically anything that photographer Morgan Maassen puts out is a must watch, and his latest short film, “Water III”, is no exception. As the title suggests this isn’t exactly a highlight reel of another Orange County grom angling for a sponsorship, but that’s just fine with me. Personally, I’d say at…

Skip Frye Gordon & Smith Ad

Greetings, Shredderz! Today we’ve got a classic ad that I’ve seen floating around the internet in various places. It’s too bad it’s not a higher quality scan, but oh well, it’s still worth featuring. Here’s a late 60s Gordon & Smith ad featuring two unusual Skip Fry designs: the Baby Gun and the…

Clyde Aikau for Local Motion

Greetings, Shredderz! Here’s an amazing 1990 Local Motion ad featuring Clyde Aikau. I found this pic on eBay. I’m personally not down with dicing up old surf mags to sell individual ads in the hopes of turning a maybe $100 profit, so enjoy this thing for free. I love the swagger that just…
