This boat sauna, designed by goCstudio in Seattle, is not only well designed but photographed beautifully by Kevin Scott. Scale figures are always a must with architectural photography but this brings models and fashion into the mix as well. Fun project that would be a great addition for any sea dweller.

Getting bogged down by summer heat right about now? Located right at the edge of the wilderness, along the road to the Arctic Sea is one of the coziest and fanciest places to watch the Northern Lights. Kakslauttanen is a hotel next to the Urho Kekkonen National Park, the largest of Finland’s national parks. As the story goes, in the summer of 1973, Jussi (the founder) was on a fishing trip in Utsjoki, Finland’s northernmost village. On the drive back to central Finland, he ran out of fuel. The young man really had no choice but to set up camp where he stood, on a roadside in the middle of the wilderness. The place happened to be called Kakslauttanen. For some inexplicable reason, Jussi felt as if he had come home. He spent his first summer there in a tent. In the second year, a small chalet was erected on the site, and Jussi began to run a café to serve passers-by on their way to North Cape. Little by little, year after year, Kakslauttanen has grown to become Finland’s internationally best-known travel business. It is still being run by Jussi, with great care and attention – the way it has always been. More details and booking info here:

“A group of surfers in California have been working for years on perfecting the ability to ride waves without surfboards. Here are some of their exploits.” Ever since the invisible board section of the classic Girl Skateboards flick, Yea Right, I have personally been waiting for some director to the same thing for surfing. Well, that 13 year long wait is finally over! Thank you Foster Huntington and friends, this is just great.

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 Molly Matalon.

Those ingenious Swedes over at Teenage Engineering along with the folks at Impossible Project just recently released their latest product, the I-1 Instant Camera. Not only is this camera a thing of beauty that Dieter Rams would be proud of, but it’s also the first instant camera to come out in the past 20 years that can use the original Polaroid format film. But wait, there’s more! You can also use your cell phone as a remote trigger. If only Edwin Land could see his baby now. Go grab yours over in our custom Indoek Shop on Huckberry here:

The range is inspired by the emotional value of adventurous pursuits in nature. The range consists of a table and chair which can be used both in the home and when going on an adventure such as camping, a picnic or even for a garden party.

When I first started surfing, Chris Malloy was my favorite surfer, then it was Kieth, later it was Dan. It wasn’t just their style I was drawn to, but their sense of adventure, their low key attitude, humble-ness, DIY attitude – they just seemed like true badass waterman. Almost 20 years later, this video epitomizes everything I admire about these guys. Following in the footsteps of their father, the Malloy brothers have been blazing trails off the beaten path since before they knew how to stand up on a surfboard. Their love of adventure has brought them to remote beaches all over the globe, earned them spots at the top of the competitive surfing world, and fueled their endless exploration.

Harry Gesner, a 90-year-old maverick modern architect from Malibu, designs with a focus on the environment and a disregard for convention. Instead of taking up Frank Lloyd Wright’s offer to study at Taliesin, he spent years teaching himself the building trades, a DIY attitude that inspired his own unorthodox projects. Nearly born surfing—he was taught by lifeguards near his childhood home in Oxnard, California—€”it became his passion, and influenced the design of his most famous building, the copper shingle-crested Wave House, a frozen series of cresting roofs which he first sketched on the back of a surfboard with a grease pencil.

Jesse Martinez was and still is one of the most prolific skate boarders of our generation. Along with Natas Kapas, Jesse revolutionized the way skateboarders attacked the streets. Jesse has appeared on the cover of Thrasher and many other publications. He transcended cultures and after a long battle he fulfilled his life long dream of getting a skate park built in Venice Beach. After years of maintaining it Jesse was relieved of his duty because of greed and politics.

Meet Rambu. She lives on a small Indonesian island called Sumba where she loves to play hide and seek with her brother Ridwan. Rambu also believes that her mum has magical powers! Nearly two years ago, Rambu’s dad died suddenly and her family struggled. Eventually her mum couldn’t even afford to send Rambu and her siblings to school. This was especially hard for Rambu, who wants to be a Doctor when she grows up. Then her mum Lydia received a small loan and that’s when the magic started. A small loan enabled Lydia to open a small shop, giving her a regular source of income to support her family and send Rambu back to school. A helping hand in the form of a small loan was a world of magic to Rambu.

As a dad-to-be expecting a son in a few short weeks, I find myself thinking a lot lately about what kind of father I want to be and how to raise my son in this world. With all the various forms of technology and communication, it’s to get distracted and to forget about the simple things in life: spending time outdoors and having fun with nature. I’ve always considered Shane Dorian a badass, but after watching this video, he is now my hero and the epitome of how I hope to raise my son. Granted, I may not live in the back country of Hawaii or know how to hunt wild boar, but the point is to spend more time outside. Shane Dorian has faced some of the most dangerous waves in the world, is an avid hunter, and considers himself most in his element when outdoors. And for his son, Jackson, Dorian is passing on the same appreciation for the wild that comes with an endless spirit of outdoor exploration. Another beautiful video from the talented folks at Farm League, just in time for Father’s Day!
