Spray of the Day

Spray of the Day

You might not remember, but we used to do a little thing called spray of the day. We post sprays that we do, we like, or  really don’t like! haha. We haven’t posted a spray of the day in a super long time, but when we were down at Lowers the other day, I couldn’t […]


A Cabo Short

A while back, December to be exact, we jumped down to Cabo for a few days. We planned it as the first trip in a series of trips to make a new movie. But then the swell didn’t show up. And another day with no swell, and another. Then it ended up being quite the […]


Tail of the Week: Elsa Hosk

Tail of the Week: Elsa Hosk

Woah. She is stunningly beautiful. So beautiful that she deserves two tail of the weeks. Here are three photos of her, but you should probably google her just to see some of the other amazing photos. Maybe we’ll do a color edition of her too. For now, Elsa Hosk in black and white. Tweet


Parker’s Strange Brain

Want a bit of insight into Parker’s weird and twisted teenage brain? Well, here it is. This came out a little bit ago, but he has been in El Salvador filming for an upcoming Volcom surf film. Better I post it late then never i suppose… I thought this piece came out really, really cool […]

Board Blog: Hand Shape

Today I shaped a board. It was my third board. First one was when i was 12; a single fin that you couldn’t really tell the nose from tail. It worked sick though. Second a 6’6″ step up i shaped with my dad for hawaii. It went insane. It was 17 3/4 inches wide, a […]

Jack White is truly inspiring. He is so creative with music and incredibly talented. This song is just one example of Jack’s freakish talent. He goes off on this tangent at the end of this song after he shreds this stuppppidddd solo. Check it out! Tweet

A Sea Movie

This is a little piece done by Jack Coleman while we were in Bali this year. Something a wee bit different for you on a gloomy Thursday. Jack Coleman is a rad dude who thrives off of super 8. He takes a completely different approach to filming surfing, and has now made two films shot […]


Tail of the Week: Isis Laurent

Tail of the Week: Isis Laurent

Providing us with a bit of a sophisticated look for this week is Isis Laurent. There weren’t too many photos of her, well there were, but we try to stay away from the nude ones for our younger viewers. Well, actually, mostly so that their Mom’s don’t get mad at us and block our website […]


Throwback Thursday!! Chile

This was a little video that was put together from my trip to Chile this summer. We got pretty skunked, but still managed to have a good time. After this trip, I had never driven so much in my life. I think when it was all said in done we spent 24 hours driving in […]


Busy Busy Busy!

Busy Busy Busy!

Well, the past few months have been absolutely amazing! We traveled to Morocco, Tahiti, and Hawaii and have had so much fun in each place. It has been so much fun  being able to experience such a variety of places in such a short period of time. Morocco was such an interesting experience. The airline […]


Tail of the Week: Swimsuits

This week’s Tail of the Week is unique. It isn’t one woman but in fact multiple women. It isn’t just three photos but instead a video. A video of very pretty women in very pretty bikinis posing in very sexual ways for Surfing Magazine’s Swimsuit edition. Doctor’s orders.   Tweet

Board Blog: Single Fin

Board Blog: Single Fin

I spoke with Travis several months ago about possibly making a 6 channel single fin of some sort. After a few weeks I forgot about our conversation, but was still pumped on getting him to make me a single fin. Then we were gone, and then I forgot some more…  Then last week in Tahiti […]


Rincon Classic

Rincon Classic

The Rincon Classic is perhaps the best local event in the history of local events. Every year the Santa Barbara community gets together down at Rincon and hangs out for two epic days of waves and good times. This year was the 30th anniversary of the event and It was the first year that I’ve […]


Bell Vita: the trailer

The ability to tell a story through film, and furthermore capture the unique attributes of a particular culture, is an enormous task that few people can do with success. Our uncle Jason Baffa is one of the few people who can achieve this and he is at it again. He’s previously conceived the ideas of, […]


Bye Morocco !

A big thanks to Moroccan Surf Adventures for the amazing hospitality and we look forward to seeing […]

North Shore Surf Shop Sunset Beach Pro Jr.

North Shore Surf Shop Sunset Beach Pro Jr.

Last week the North Shore Surf Shop’s Sunset Beach Pro Jr. ran in absolutely firing Sunset Point! However, leading up to the event I hadn’t been surfing too much due to a shoulder injury. I was chowing down ibuprofen and was still in a lot of pain, but somehow managed to make my heat on […]
