Influences: Tom Curren

Conner

Tommy Curren has been my biggest surfing influence since the first time I ever watched him surf. I remember being really young and just thinking he was this super elusive, almost mythical person, who popped up randomly when the waves were amazing and surfed them to perfection. Tom’s style has this unique blend of silky style, yet raw power, that is the epitome of surfing to me. When i watch Tom surf I feel like he is really expressing himself through his surfing and that’s what I love most about it. He makes it look like a true art-form. My favorite footage of Tom is at Jeffrey’s Bay during the filming for “Searching For Tom Curren.” This video only has one wave of this session in it, but it certainly gets the point across:) RIP Sonny Miller and thank you for capturing this incredible surfing.

Noah Schweizer

Parker

Well, if you are a teenage girl Noah needs no introduction. He was voted Surfing Magazines “Biggest Lady Killer” of 2014 in the teenage issue for a reason. However, if you are curious why you haven’t seen too much of Noah it’s because he is just now coming into his own. He’s been traveling a lot and putting a lot of time and effort into getting better and it’s really starting to show. I’ve traveled with Noah for the last year or two to all of our Junior events and have seen him constantly progressing. Prepare to see some big things from him in the near future. YouTube Preview Image

Musical Happenings

Conner

In the last few months a few buddies and I ( Adam Lambert and Travers Adler) have been playing a ton of music. And we’ve finally been dialing in a few things that we are stoked. Last weekend we played our first show as the “Hidden City Band” at a new venue called 416 state with our good buddies Pacific Haze (check em out here). Johnny Mcann has been playing bass with us recently too which has been a blast. We are playing another show this friday at 416 state opening up for A fish n’ sea the moon and one of my favorite bands, Pleasure. Come on down!!!

Bobby Martinez

Parker

Well… If you were wondering if Bobby is still surfing amazing, here is your answer. This is one session around home this winter that Bobby put on an absolute clinic. In my opinion he’s the best goofy foot tube rider I’ve ever seen second to maybe Gerry Lopez. Go ahead, watch and be amazed.

Oz Playlist

Here’s 6 songs that have been getting me psyched lately!

Been really digging the Derek and the Dominos stuff lately. Clapton’s guitar playing is godly.
