Innocnts Log Studies Vol. 1

Innocnts Log Studies Vol. 1 is one of those ideas that’s so good, that instantly makes so much sense, that it practically seems obvious. I’m assuming anyone reading this is familiar with Stab Magazine’s “Stab in the Dark” video series, which is best described as a blind taste test for surfboards. Here’s the…

Diff’s Masterpiece + More: CA Gold Rundown

By now you probably know the deal with Scott Bass’ California Gold surf auction. If you don’t, it’s the leading auction for vintage and collectible surfboards, and it always puts together a selection of sick sleds. See below for my personal favorite boards from the auction. I also recommend checking out all of…

Far Out East feat. Harrison Roach

“Far Out East” is a surf edit that packs remarkable breadth and depth into its sub ten minute run time.

It’s a unique edit with some unexpected choices in both cinematography and soundtrack, but the risks ultimately pay off. Even if the edit’s stylings aren’t necessarily your speed, there’s no…

Zack Flores for Zack Flores Surfboards

Zack Flores’ Instagram captions simultaneously crack me up and make me feel very, very old. His self-dubbed titles are a delightful combination of ridiculous and grandiose: he is Sir Buff, the director and founder of the Buff Tour de SoCal; the dude of thickness; the master of gooch; and at any given moment,…

Shred Sledz Social Media Roundup

Lopez in Bali, Harrison Roach + More

I wrote the first Social Media Roundup entry almost seven years ago. I tend to cringe when confronted with a lot of my old work, but I thought that one held up pretty well (then again, it’s just a collection of embedded Instagram posts). All this time later, not a ton has changed….
