Stunning Triple Stringer Takayama

Greetings, Shredderz! There exists a long, not exactly organized list of surfboards I’d like to own someday. A hand shaped Donald Takayama longboard is somewhere close to the top. If you want to be ultra accurate, I suppose you could say a hand signed Donald Takayama longboard; like many other labels with large…

Vintage Ugg Boots Ad

Greetings, Shredderz! The last time I featured an Ugg Boots ad, well, let’s just say it’s aesthetically very different from the one you see here. I saw this ad on eBay (I think), and I loved the artwork. But as I sat down to write about it and took a closer look, I…

Greetings, Shredderz! Here’s more footage of Devon Howard, surfing Malibu (when the crowd permits, anyway). This was first published by the Seawolf Collective on their YouTube channel. The Malibu crowds are not for the faint of heart, but there’s some stylish surfing packed in there between all the near collisions.

Herbie Fletcher’s “Wave Warriors II”

Greetings, Shredderz! Last week for Sagas of Shred we featured a 60s surf movie poster. At the opposite end of the surf movie poster scale we have this gem, which was made for “Wave Warriors II”, by Herbie Fletcher. The copy on the poster is nothing short of amazing: The buzzword is “hardcore.”…

Greetings, Shredderz! Today we’re featuring a very cool stick combining a few different threads of surf history, all of which I love: legendary LA label Natural Progression, distinguished Hawaiian shaper Owl Chapman, prolific South Bay board builder Phil Becker, and Steve Mangiagli (I think!).

“Out of Control” by Grant Rohloff

Greetings, Shredderz! For those who aren’t familiar, every Thursday evening I post a vintage surf ad as part of the Sagas of Shred series. One of my favorite sub-genres of vintage surf ads are the movie posters that accompanied a number of 60s surf films. Here’s a poster for Grant Rohloff’s 1961 film…

The Raddest Airbrush I’ve Ever Seen

Greetings, Shredderz! I usually try and keep the hyperbole in check, but hey, it ain’t bragging if it’s true, right? In this case I’m happy to show some pics of the single coolest airbrush on a surfboard I have ever seen. It should surprise exactly no one that the airbrush was done by…
