Wayne & Donna Gunther are living the American Dream. In the early ‘90s, they decided to give up their lucrative, fast-paced jobs in fashion and photography to drive 30,000 miles all over the country, collecting artifacts of a certain aesthetic and vision along the way. They ended up in Venice – Abbot Kinney specifically, which was at that point was still an artist in residence community. Surfing Cowboys was born of their travels and eclectic love for California and surf culture, it is essentially a museum of sorts where everything is for sale. Before the internet and eBay, this was the spot to get the rare gems you were looking for, or to find creative inspiration from relics of the past. Once an iconic landmark of Abbot Kinney ’s local character, the shop has since moved a bit east on Venice Boulevard.

Welcome to our 27 Frames series. We sent 27 single use cameras out to some of our favorite photographers, they shot stuff with it, then mailed it back to us. We developed the film and are sharing the results with you (and the photographers) now. In this instant, digital age, we want to pay homage to a snapshot photo process we grew up with ourselves — waiting for the film to develop and being surprised by the results. These 27 Frames belong to Jason Baffa.

Ace Kvale turned 60 last fall, and to celebrate, he planned a 60-day, off-trail backpacking trip around Utah’s Canyon Country, leaving from his front door. He had a dozen friends join him for different sections of the trip, and one friend who joined him for the whole thing: his blue heeler, 10-year-old Genghis Khan aka ‘Desert Dog’. Covering over 400 miles on their journey presented it’s challenges but the special relationship between Ace and Genghis proved most powerful. Directed by Brendan Leonard, Forest Woodward and Stefan Hunt.

Ok, that title might be slightly extreme, but I don’t know a single surfer in the world who doesn’t think that surfing by yourself is awesome. Being alone in the ocean and having all the waves to yourself is both therapeutic and intoxicating. Social media, texting, technology, people, data, those are all things we try to get away from and escape through surfing. Yes, you are alone and disconnected from all that stuff, but isn’t that the goal: to instead connect with nature and yourself in that moment? I don’t know though, maybe I’ve just been doing it wrong all these years.

Yesterday our friends over at General Admission posted an all-too-true article about the sad state of surfing in Venice and greater Los Angeles. This has been a pretty popular topic of discussion lately (both in and out of the water), especially after a similar article ran on The Inertia not long ago. Point being, we share in the common frustration of being LA-based surfers in these crowded and unruly times. We are not sure what the solution to the rat race is at this point, but it definitely starts with respect for one another. The following is the original op-ed article by General Admission’s Damien Fahrenfort.

However you feel about is style and reputation, David Carson is arguably the world’s most well known graphic designer. He is one of those characters who has lived his life in the right place at the right time. All For a Few Good Waves is a short documentary portrait by Dress Code offering a raw glimpse into the life and work of David, an uncompromising genius, who refuses to be anyone but himself. After an early career as a top-rated competitor in the Western Surfing Association’s prestigious AAAA division in the 70s and high school sociology teacher, he rose to prominence in the 90’s after art directing Transworld, Beach Culture and Ray Gun Magazines before going on to start his studio. With no formal design training, Carson took the design world by storm, upending conventions and breaking traditional rules he didn’t even know existed.
