The Tails

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!

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 […]

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 […]


Steph Koehne: Shredding/Fishing

Stephen is a rad surfer from Kaui who loves to get tubed and catch big fish. Two things that we both really enjoy as well! Here is a video of him doing exactly that!!!! Check it out… Tweet

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, orĀ  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

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 […]


Tunes: Ball and Biscuit

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


Happy Easter!

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 […]
