Vote for Rasta!

Our good friend Mick Waters has done a collaboration with Dave Rastovich for a short they entered to the new Taylor Steele Innersection video. It is up now. If you are a fan of Dave's or Mick go to the site and vote for them. I love the short becuase it is the only one that I saw that has bodysurfing and classic fluid soul surfing. A huge and needed contrast to all the airs. 

Watch it, enjoy and if you dig it vote for them!

Rell Sunn was the first female lifeguard in Hawaii and she and her friends started the Women’s Professional Surfing association in the 1970’s.

The RSEF continues to support the many causes that Auntie Rell believed in and continues with their yearly children’s Menehune Surf Contest now going into its 37th year. 

Tickets range from $15 to $30 and the night will have food, drinks, hula, and aloha. Some of the items featured in the live and silent auction are a fantastic find.

Nathan Oldfield's Stillbirth and Surfing A Grief Story

From our friend Nathan Oldfield. 

"Mark Twain said that there aren’t enough words in all the languages in the world to express the sorrow of losing a child. This is a short film I produced while grieving for my daughter, Willow, who was stillborn.

This short actually forms the centrepiece of a feature length surf film I made, called Seaworthy. Since the film’s release, I have received many heartfelt words of sympathy & encouragement. There have been scores of letters & emails from surfers from all over the world that have been sensitive & authentic & moving. I have been especially touched by the messages from those who have travelled their own grief journeys. I am awed & humbled that my work somehow resonated with others’ broken hearts.

A common theme echoed among the beautiful feedback I’ve received is that the story deserves a wider audience. Surf films, by definition, appeal to only a limited demographic, & the kind of surf films I make are left-of-centre even within surfing circles. So I decided to post this online, in the hope that it may reach a few others, especially those who may be living with loss & longing.

All of us experience & express grief in varied ways, which is a good thing since we’re all different. Because I’m a surfer, this is how I gave expression to my experience of bereavement.

Thanks for taking the time to watch. [Nathan]"

You have to see this...

Our friend Eli Mirandon got the cover of Slide Magazine. I snagged these shots from his blog. 

Below is what he wrote.

"trunking it in dec in san diego on an solid agave board with a torrey pines wood stringer i built (the same as the trees up on the cliff behind me)"

Just think about that... mid 50 degree water, trunking it, no leash on a solid day at blacks, on a board built by himself on sustainable local materials. Top it off got the cover of Slide and some amazing shots. Eli, my hats off to you my friend, you're amazing.

Pierce in his Element

The bummer is that this photo has no sound. If it did you'd hear his trademark seal bark as he enters the barrel. From the beach you might look away and not see him catch a wave. Then you know he is in a barrel as you can hear the bark. Hanging out with Pierce is pure entertainment, in or out of the water.
