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….

9’2″ Skip Frye Braden

A friend of mine was an anthropology major in college. Like most people I know, his current line of work has absolutely nothing to do with what he studied in school. However, he does get some good use out of his degree, and that’s any time he’s asked to weigh in on a…

Out & About with Ryan Burch

Ryan Burch is one of the most compelling surfer / shapers in the world. He’s surely one of the most versatile, capable of looking equally at ease perched on the nose in mediocre Southern California surf, or charging the hollow barrels of Cloudbreak. His boards look insane, too. And in the utter madness…

G&S Terry Goldsmith Channel Bottom Twin Fin

For whatever reason, vintage G&S boards have been top of mind lately. I’m consistently blown away by the level of craftsmanship that goes into these boards. Whether it’s the airbrushes, the resin pin lines or everything in between, they exhibit a level of care and know how that, for whatever reason, doesn’t seem…
