Lucas Foster Styling

Here's a few shots of Lucas Foster, Encinitas local, San Dieguito Academy Surf Team member, and friend of ours. He has gone from a scrawny little grom to a full-fledged young ripper - and is extremely polished on his longboard. Recently picked-up and sponsored by Murphy Surfboards, we think this upcoming year is going to see many good things from this talented wave rider. Thanks to Pierce M. Kavanagh (PMK) for these fine photos.

This is not a contest in any way, shape or form. Just a day of fun (ie. Fish Fry) to celebrate the handplane. NO POSTERS, NO BANNERS, NO SALES, NO T-SHIRTS. All word of mouth. This event is for everyone, from the first time garage made handplanes, to the super refined handplanes that are being sold in shops. If you're into the food tray thing, bring that too. There will be representatives with Demo Planes from Hess, Surfcraft Co-op, Enjoy, and Brownfish, plus any and all other company's are welcome to bring handplanes for the masses to try-out. Please spread the word via facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. Also, a good old fashioned phone call to your Bro would be greatly appreciated.

Park at base of Avenida Calafia in city lot. Walk south along beach until you see Blue Pop-up tent. Planning to set up 50-100 yards south of Avenida Calafia. Alternate spot pending conditions would be further south around life guard tower.

Art by Paul “Ugie” Uglow

Paul “Ugie” Uglow

Native Californian has lived in Hawaii, New Zealand, Mexico and Australia. His world travels influence his Tribal prehistoric Sea Creatures. 100% recycled surfboards and paint are used. How cool is that? I got to do a show with Ugie a few weeks back and his work was inspiring. His use of color is great and his creatures are just plain fun! Good job Ugie!

Contact Ugie here if you are interested in purchasing his art or would like to invite him to an art show. 

Thanks to everyone for supporting your local artists.
