Another July weekend looking for a glide

July 29th, 2008 · Comments Off on Another July weekend looking for a glide

We found some sweet wave glides over the weekend. Saturday was small and clean in the morning (nice 7 AM session). Johan and I hit Kennebunk; which can be hit and miss; not as much swell but no crowds. Knee high glassy longboard waves. We slowly made our way down south looking for more swell. […]

How to ride a fish

July 20th, 2008 · Comments Off on How to ride a fish

This is great – so smooth – there’s a couple turns that remind me of ultra silky pow snowboarding. If only one day I can surf 1/2 this well.

The Wizard Staff

July 18th, 2008 · 2 Comments

This is the best new canned beer drink tradition I’ve seen in years; “…a ‘wizard staff’ is when you finish a beer and tape it underneath your next beer. As you drink more beers, the staff grows. You become a wizard when the staff is taller than you.” http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Wizard+Staff

We arrived around noon to find decent small scale swell and some fair wind conditions. We hit the wall after looking around — thanking the fact that we had chosen to bring our longboards […]

Never forget Matt Hensely

July 16th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Don’t worry, Matt’s still alive — just to say that he is forever one of my skateboard heroes — the inspiration he provided me (and many others) between ’89 and ’91 can easily be culled back to life by watching a couple seconds of video. Gotta thank him one day. Black Label has a quick […]

A client of ours in NYC, Ultrabland, produces some amazing spots/trailers and teasers for some of the cables networks. They have always impressed me with there “ultra-editing” chops — but this takes the cake. Watch the award winning Cinemax “Sounds Good” Spot.
