The Last Social Media Roundup of 2022

Greetings, Shredderz! See below for I don’t know a ton about Japanese photographer Hideaki Sato, but I do have a copy of “North Shore 1970-1980”, which is a dope pocket sized book documenting everyone’s favorite Hawaiian proving grounds.

More John John in Hawaii

Greetings, Shredderz! This blog is about vintage surfboards, shapers and John John Florence’s video edits, apparently. But can you blame me? With winter in full swing on the North Shore, Florence’s YouTube activity picks up, and the content is beyond reproach. Check out two recent shorts below:

Greetings, Shredderz! Sometimes, writing about surfing is very easy. Take, for instance, the following scenario: John John Florence drops a new edit on his YouTube channel.

“Gravity” by John John Florence

Please, whatever you do, don’t call “Gravity”, the new release from John John Florence and Parallel Sea Productions, “content.” I’d rather not refer to it as an edit, either, but sometimes you gotta mix it up. If we’re being precise, “Gravity” is a short film. Maybe it’s just semantics, maybe I’m just a…

“Form” feat. John John Florence

Is there any pairing greater than John John Florence and Pipeline? I might be willing to cede the title to peanut butter and jelly, but that’s where I draw the line. “Form” is an eleven minute ode to John John’s home break and the most famous surf spot in history. For all the…

Black Rain, Tosh in Hawaii & John John Down South

Greetings, Shredderz! Welcome to the latest installment of Clipz. Here are some videos I’ve enjoyed lately: Tosh Tudor is in Hawaii, continuing the family tradition of ripping on a wide variety of shapes. This video has a criminally low 477 views as of publishing time and it deserves a whole lot more. The…

“Let it Simmer” & More

Greetings, Shredderz! Today’s “Clipz” entry admittedly has a familiar feel, as it features the likes of Mikey February and John John Florence, who have been frequent subjects here at Shred Sledz. But hey, I’m also not going to apologize for liking what I like, and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I’m…
