Ryan & Tina Essmaker, the husband-and-wife team behind The Great Discontent (TGD) have always encouraged the TGD community to take risks and make the things they love—now, they’re taking a leap to make something they believe in. Since they launched the first digital issue of TGD as a side project in August 2011, over 115 long-form interviews with individuals from a variety of creative disciplines have been published. These interviews are a great source of creative inspiration for all of us over these years. Now it is time to give back to a site that gives us so much. Help Ryan & Tina realize their goal on Kickstarter so they can kick it up a notch and continue to bring us the creative content we love. Donate here and get some kick ass rewards:

It is very refreshing to see Thomas Campbell’s latest piece is a new skate film. It has everything you love about his surf flicks; pure, saturated colors, true film grain, perfectly composed frames and a sweet soundtrack. This 21 minute movie was shot entirely on 16mm film in a dream scene scenario that blends reality, surreality and a skate adventure starring Javier Mendizabal and Madars Apse. It captures Javier Brushing his teeth, slobbering on his pillow, bedding down with a beautiful brunette. Also Javi running into Madars Apse in his dream, they skate over volcano’s, thru the woods and into cities of Spain, The Canary Islands, Mallorca, The Basque country and California. This film has a completely original soundtrack by Basque super group “Chiwoks”.  In case you missed the free premiere on Vimeo, now you can download it on iTunes:

Part 2 of the Bigfoot Country saga featuring Trevor Gordon. Cascadia’s Bigfoot Country had treated our traveler Mr. Gordon to nothing but fun waves and pleasurable camping experiences. That, however, was before a close encounter with none other than the mythical Bigfoot himself. Thus, Trevor thought it wise to head back home to Carpinteria, California. But before he left, he availed himself of some deserted waves.

This past fall Patagonia opened its first surf shop on the east coast on the heart of the Bowery in New York City and to help welcome them Indoek spent some time getting to know the ins and outs of the new shop and its employees. We were even lucky enough to escape the city and find some swell for a little logging session with shop manager DL Tashjian and assistant manager (and former ASP Longboard World Champ) Schuyler McFerran. If you haven’t gotten a chance to swing by the unique Patagonia shop to see what it’s all about or even if you have, here’s a special look at Patagonia Bowery in this Indoek original content piece narrated by Patagonia’s DL Tashjian.

‘Home Ground’ is a short anthropological film exploring how two very different, but geographically close, cultures relate to one another within a striking and vast natural landscape. Featuring Siggi the Icelandic sailor and Dines the Greenlandic hunter.

Alternative Apparel has recently started doing artist co-op capsule collections, the latest of which features the work of Venice-based design studio, ITAL/C… I was going to try to write this objectively, but screw it – what’s the point of having a blog if you can’t shamelessly self-promote your own work every once in a while? The collection consists of mens and womens spring fashions, a couple limited edition poster prints (only 50 of each), and is inspired by boats, geometry, and Eames, so we called it “mid-century nautical”, which seemed a little better than #boatlife. You can find it in all Alternative Apparel store locations and online here:
