Tomorrow night, Saturday 14th, Smash will be hosting the NY premiere of I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night at The Villian Space in Williamsburg. The movie follows the simplistic travels of two surfers, meeting friends along the way, on an open ended journey across an archipelago littered with islands and breaks. The film screening is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6PM with a performance by Bad Girlfriend and the screening at 8PM.

I was just looking for a good laugh this manic Monday afternoon and remembered this little gem by Peter Smith-Buchanan that pokes good fun at the urban artisanal movement. As a public request to all you hip furniture designers and urban craftsmen out there; I am still just waiting for someone to re-design the shit out of a toilet. A hand-crafted, designer crapper would be hilarious and also amazing. Put me on the mailing list and let me know when it’s ready for pre-order.

This weekend Brooklyn upstart Union Surfboards will open their doors to celebrate the opening of their new Bushwick studio space. Swing by between 1-7PM on Saturday to check out their digs, feel up a board or two and enter to win a custom Union surfboard. Afterwards the party heads to Black Bear Bar in Williamsburg where the raffle winner will be announced. See the flyer for all the details.

Meet Anna Ehrgott, the quintessential California surfer girl. In fact, I’m pretty sure there are a few Beach Boys songs about her. Anna spends her days outdoors, hiking, sewing board bags, picture taking, but mostly surfing Southern California’s many point breaks. Most people would recognize her in the lineups at First Point and Topanga. We recently took a little trip up the canyon to pay miss Anna a visit and have her show us the beautiful place where she calls home.
