Griffin has an awesome family and he is humbly becoming one of the next super groms from California. We really like hanging with Griffin. He’s a super nice kid, loves to school other kids […]


El Salvador!!

The quantity if blog posts has been seriously diminished lately and for that we apologize. I’ve been crazy busy traveling to contests and most of them have had no Internet. Last week I went to El Salvador for the reef pro 6 star event. The waves were absolutely firing and we had an amazing time. […]


Tail of the week winner.

Tail of the week winner.

A while ago we did a post about a tail of the week comp. We got some entries, not quite the turnout we were hoping for, but we were able to pick a winner! Sorry for the delay, but we’ve been quite busy!!! This is a photo of Jade Forbes photographed by Jake Vincent. A […]


Down South

Down South

¬†Well, its getting to be that time of year where the waves get flat in our beloved Santa Barbara. In the summer months¬†the Channel Islands block most of our beaches from the south swell in the summer time so we pack up the cars and head south. This particular shot is at Newport Beach. It’s […]


Transworld Surf Cover/R.I.P.

Transworld Surf Cover/R.I.P.

A few months ago Parker and I went on a trip with Transworld Surf to Morocco. We stayed with the guys at Morroco Surf Adventures, surfed uncrowded mental waves every day, ate amazing food, and had an awesome time with awesome people. The boys over at Transworld are such good dudes and are always up […]


Nicaragua !

Nicaragua !

  Hi!       I just got back from Nicaragua competing on the USA surf team at the Dakine ISA World Junior Championships. The contest was held at a really fun, but tricky, left wedge called Santanas. It was extremely hot and the waves were fun, but unfortunately I had an early round loss. […]


Profile: Eithan Osbourne

Eithan is our little buddy from Ventura. He is 13 years old likes to surf and is a black belt. He has lots of nicknames and surfs quite well. I think he won 16 NSSAs thie year. And westerns too. Nationals is next week and he will be running his Acorn suit with pride for […]


Oakley Dispatch Movie

Oakley gathered footage of the team throughout the year and put together this montage of pretty amazing surfing. Some really cool stuff in here. Especially of Seabass. He’s blowing up right now and rightfully so (did you see his heat against Taj??!!?!!). I managed to sneak a few waves in here too…. Enjoy!!! Tweet


Recovered Cell Phone

Recovered Cell Phone

Back in November I took my phone out to Rincon in a new waterproof case designed by Mophie. It was an amazing afternoon and I paddled out on a longboard to take some photos and video while I rode some waves. When i was standing up on a wave I dropped the case because i […]


Kashmir.

Kashmir is a Led Zeppelin song. This video is an excerpt from It Might Get Loud which is a rad documentary type movie featuring Jack White, Jimmy Page, and The Edge. Jimmy Page and Jack White are two of my favorites. This is an awesome little piece where Jimmy Page breaks down the guts of […]


We’re in Japan!!!

We're in Japan!!!

And we are having an epic time. Japan is such a rad place, but what makes it so special is the people. The hospitality has been second to none and we are so appreciative of our Japanese friends. A huge thanks to Teppei Tajima, Kaito Ohashi, Arashi Kato, and Shuji Kasuya. They have taken such […]


Hurley One and Only

Hurley has been doing a series of videos titled “one and only.” Perry and I have worked on mine over the last few weeks and I’m pretty pumped on how it turned out. It’s mostly just some random bits and pieces of footage that we accumulated over the little while. Some Hawaii leftovers, a lowers […]


Bloopers

Bloopers

I had a pretty interesting session last night. The waves were really fun but it was really crowded and really back washy. It made for some great wipe out moments. Here’s a few bloopers. Tweet


Loopyness

I was digging through our vimeo archives and I came across this video. Three years ago I had an impacted canine tooth removed from the roof of my mouth. They put me out and apparently used some good stuff to do it with. Parker proceeded to film the aftermath and got quite a kick out […]


Spray of the Day!

Spray of the Day!

I was feeling somewhat inspired the other day and took the afternoon to paint two fresh boards. I was quite pleased with the turn out! yehhawwww. Get some paint and go to town on your next board!We especially dig the Montana Gold spray paint…   Tweet


Goofy Foot Power Psyche

Just hanging out at home doing some of my last little bit of schoolwork for the year and started thinking about surfing… Next thing you know I’m watching old videos of Occy rip the lip off of poor waves heads. When boredom strikes, give yourself a little Goofy Foot Power Psyche and get motivated to […]

  Be our tail of the week!!!!! Today is Monday and Monday is usually a good day to post a new Tail of the Week. But, this week we thought we might do things a little bit differently. We want you girls out there to send us submissions for tail of the week so that […]


The Stones Concert

The Stones Concert

On May 3rd we went and saw the Rolling Stones at the Staples center. It was such an incredible show that we were all left pretty much lost for words when people asked us how it was. The best explanation I could give was that it was nearly life changing and definitely one of the […]


CC Handshape

CC Handshape

Remember that weird looking hunk of shaped foam that I posted a photo of a while back? Well I took that crude looking thing into the Channel Islands surfboard factory and had them glass it. I couldn’t decide whether to put 1 2 3 4 or 5 fins on it so I thought I’dd just […]


Mike Piscitelli….

Mike Piscitelli....

Is a good dude. He also just so happens to be an incredibly creative dude with a unique perspective on life. And a humble one at that. His creativity is very evident in his photography (lots of which is of very pretty women. yes we are a bit envious…) and directing skills. I’ve had the […]


A Major Contribution To Modern Day Radicalness: Wave Warriors IV

This film inspired the modern form of surfing… Punk rock, amazing surfing, classic characters, and of course some amazing camel toe shots are what makes this surf movie an eternal figure in the surf world. Sit back, relax, put on your old school attire, and watch how amazing Herbie Fletcher’s creation is.   Tweet


ARt

ARt

Well… I’m definitely not the most artistically talented man in the world, but I do enjoy picking up some paint and a canvass to do some doodling. Yesterday, I found this canvass and just randomly came up with this idea in my head. i think the most amazing part about doing art is that it […]


Tail of the Week

Tail of the Week

Today is Tit, I mean Tue, titty, i mean Tuesday. But today it will be titty tuesday thanks to Jordan Carver. Tweet


Tunes: Blake Mills

If you haven’t heard of Blake Mills yet, you were going to sooner or later. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Blake perform live twice now. Once at a hoe down and once last night at Mollusk surf shop in Venice. Both times I have been dumbfounded by his ability to dissect, shred, and caress […]
