How would you like to have that new board feeling every time you surf for 11 sessions straight? You know; waxing up a brand new, pearly white surfboard straight from the shaper and letting it touch the ocean for the first time, laying down your first smooth turn, then eventually giving it it’s first of many pressure dings… Stab Magazine invited 12 of the world’s best shapers to each create a board for an unidentified 6’0”, 80kg CT surfer. Fast-forward some months and Julian Wilson was standing in the garage of a West Oz rental, opening two coffins full of cleanskin boards – no markings, no stickers, no pencil on the stringer, nothing identifiable – one from California, the other direct from Sydney. This video shows his “blind surf test” process in choosing what he considered the best board. Spoiler alert: it was the DHD.

It never ceases to amaze me when I stumble across high-end surfboards that seem to be specifically designed for someone’s Malibu beach house wall instead of actually surfing waves. Who knows though, maybe some of them work really, really well? Like this weird concept board that Peugot made, or these “luxury surfboards” made by a product design studio. Or maybe they are just meant for the Elon Musks of the world who want a sweet wall-hanger. Either way, if I had $10,000 to spare, I might actually buy one of these fancy beauties made for the Kelly Wearstler home decor collection.

This week has been full of mixed emotions out in LA. On one hand, the stoke levels have been fiercely high with a solid 5-6 days of overhead surf. On the other hand, there’s the crowd factor. Couple that with the full moon and there’s bound to be some primal weirdness. With so many other breaks closing out due to the conditions, Malibu has played host to the hoards of surf-starved wave fiends all week – literally all day and even all night long. Leave it to the Brothers Marshall to capture themayhem and absurdity of first point, Malizoo in this video. Enjoy, and see you next south swell!

A beautiful film and a truly inspiring story, The Fisherman’s Son is a new 30-minute film chronicling Ramón Navarro’s rise to the top of the big wave surfing world and his growing voice as an environmental activist. When one of Chile’s most iconic surf spots and Navarro’s home break of Punta de Lobos came under the threat of commercial development, Ramón, the son of a subsistence fisherman, turned his platform as a surfer into a campaign to protect a place critical to his sport and near to his heart. Patagonia produced and Chris Malloy directed The Fisherman’s Son, in association with Save The Waves. It’s available for free to audiences around the world on Patagonia.com, YouTube and Vimeo – and it’s being distributed along with a call for individuals to take action and help Navarro protect Punta de Lobos forever by donating money to Save The Waves. The film has already received praise, recently winning The 5Points Award 2015 at the 5Point Film Festival in Carbondale, Colorado.

Randy Hild is a living legend in the surf industry. He helped usher in a new era in women’s surfing with the birth of Roxy. In doing so, he is responsible for balancing out the gender ratio in the lineup and forever raised the bar for marketing in the surf world. His creative curiosity and deep love of surf history and culture more recently led to him starting M.Nii, which was named one of GQ’s best menswear labels last year and is a tribute to surfing’s golden age roots in post WWII Hawaii. A couple years ago Randy moved into a beautiful mid-century home in Laguna Niguel, which is of course rich in California architectural history itself. I recently spent the day down there to comb through his extensive collection of vintage surf scrap in his library, talk a little shop, and catch a rare near-empty evening session at San-O. Check out the full story here:

Countries all over the world are in some of the worst drought conditions in history, experiencing “exceptional” drought conditions – the harshest on a five-level scale. Most people don’t know that household showers are one of the biggest water wasters and top contributors to a high water bill. The average shower is 9 minutes long, using an estimated 19 gallons of water per shower. On average, U.S. residents are using approximately 6 billion gallons of shower water per day. Now more than ever, society needs to change its view on water consumption. The Eva team combined the power of technology with the sensibility of conservation to create a concept with the potential to make a significant impact on water usage. The Eva Smart Shower is a way to provide homeowners with an easy, simple solution to help conserve water. After successfully being funded on Indigogo, it looks like these smart showers will be available soon via the Eva site:
