Shred Sledz Social Media Roundup

Fantastic Acid In Hawaii & More

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…

Greetings, Shredderz! Pro surfer / scientist Cliff Kapono just released a new edit via Nobody Surf, titled “Open Rhythms”. 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…

Katin: Rugged as the Sea

Greetings, Shredderz! Katin is one of California’s great, old school surf brands, and it’s still growing strong today. They also have an incredible archive of ads (this one is probably my favorite). Here we’ve got a old Katin ad — I’m not sure from when, maybe 70s or 80s sometime? — featuring some…

Ricky Grigg for Jantzen

Greetings, Shredderz! Here’s a beautiful 60s Jantzen Sportswear ad that I originally found on Pinterest. I love 60s surf ads; I’m always impressed how they used the limitations at the time — very little color, for starters — to come up with streamlined and arresting designs. The top photo of Ricky Grigg paddling…
