Mick Waters + Rasta + Seth Pettersen = Stoke

One of my favorite scenes in Little Black Wheels was the Rasta section. Yes Dave surfs his brains out but one of the true stars of that section was the song Baby Buddha by Seth Pettersen. The whole scene just makes me want to sing and go surf. Well done Mick, Seth and Dave!

"That's fantastic."

One of my favorite lines in the whole movie....

"It's amazing to me, in this day and age you can get a piece of professional equipment that is is still handmade. They don't make handmade tennis rackets, they don't hand make footballs. Right? So, but you can get a handmade surfboard. That's fantastic."

Glenn Henning Surfer/Activist founder of the Surfrider Foundation

Win An *enjoy handplane and water filming session - Hurry time is running out.

The crew at misfit pictures can think of no other place to celebrate the holidays except deep inside the barrel and we couldn't agree more. So we teamed up with misfit to create a limited pressing of 100 MANUFACTURING STOKE DVDs and inside one of these somebody will find THE GOLDEN TICKET. 

One lucky ticket holder will receive an *enjoy handplane and a complimentary water filming session to record the stoke on your face...forever.

Probably be easiest to film in San Diego but misfits like to travel.

DVDs ARE ONLY $15 and are available at

Last time we checked there are only 42 left... Pierce will update the count daily on his facebook page.
Good luck!

Mexico needs your help!

Our friends at Quality Peoples are working on a very cool project in collaboration with Hand Me Ups ( and PEACE ( Hand Me Ups is raising $7500 to go down to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (where Ed Fladung of lives) to help rehabilitate PEACE's community center, which sorely needs it. You might recognize PEACE, as Quality Peoples donate a portion of their profits to them. They are a non-profit organization that provides all kinds of education and services to the communities in the Puerto Vallarta area.

Hand Me Ups' fundraiser project is set up with a bunch of awesome pledge levels (similar to Kickstarter). Quality Peoples is donating a limited edition collaboration tshirt they created with Hand Me Ups and they are also donating two designs from their Spring Summer 12 collection which isn’t out in stores yet. Cast of Vices ( and Fresh Words ( are also donating items and the higher pledge levels have some great items as well.

Check out a video about introducing the project here:

Check it out. If you would like to help they would greatly appreciate.

Big Wednesday - Behind the scenes.

For those of you who are surf big movie buffs like me you can appreciate this little sneak peak into the making of Big Wednesday. Now Big Wednesday was one of my all time favorites films. If you have never seen it watch it on Netflix. I hadn't seen it since I was a kid and when I watched it again recently I was amazed at how good it still was.  Dan Merkel, famed surfing photographer from Surfing Magazine was the principle water cinematographer for the movie. I believe that is him on the left. They had some serious talent work on that film. This little gem was found on Doug Walker's Lost and Found Collection site. Enjoy.

Holiday Art Sale

It's that time of year again. Once a year Rodrigo opens his studio to the community to celebrate art and clear some inventory. If you have been eyeing his art all year and haven't pulled the trigger now is the time to buy. It only happens once a year but when it does you will get deals. Even if you aren't interested in buying art, if you have never been to his studio you should go just to look around. It's a one of a kind place that is truly Leucadia. See flyer below for details.

Darby by Doug Walker

"Darby is someone who was in the daily hustle & bustle who gave it up to raise her son. In that time she has found a new passion for designing jewelry and making things with her hands. She is an artist who is inspiring others as well as creating organic designs that make you feel good when wearing them. Her design sense is pure, simple & unique."

This is D A R B Y. Los Angeles, Ca.

I met Darby in NY this summer for the New York Surf Film Festival. She and her brother, filmmaker Doug Walker of Lost and Found, were there showing his film. The Manufacturing Stoke crew and I hit it off with them instantly. Lots of talent this family has!  enjoy

Coolest Packaging Ever

Petra Kavanagh is the genus behind the Manufacturing Stoke DVD packaging. Made from pages of post read surf mags and sealed with post consumer paper labels. It is eco for sure but what I like is that it is so damn cool. Each one is a piece of art. Good job Petra
