They sure don’t make em like they used to. With everything going on in the world these days and 2016 election candidate buzz in full swing, there is something eerily familiar and remarkably close to home in this speech from the 1940 classic starring Charlie Chaplin. Words of wisdom from a comedic genius ringing true 75 years later. “Things that make you go hmmm.”
A few years ago, we posted about this luxurious underwater hotel room in the Maldives. Now we stumbled upon another good place to go sleeping with the fishes (and not have to be in trouble with the mob or anything). Located off the remote island of Pemba – an island part of the Zanzibar archipelago just off the coast of Tanzania, this more low key and secluded hut on the water looks a little more up my alley. Check out this personal review video by a guest who stayed there (a little shakey, but you get the idea), and more booking info here:www.themantaresort.com
Every month we are updating a custom, curated Indoek Shop on Huckberry.com. For the month of April as the weather starts to change in favor of warmer days, we have assembled a collection of products for getting outside more, beach days, day hikes, or even a weekend camping adventure perhaps.FULL STORY
Ever since seeing an awesome video on Dock Ellis & the LSD No No by Doubleday & Cartwright a couple years ago, I have been very intrigued by the story and that era in pro sports in general. On June 12, 1970, Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 136 years of baseball history, only 276 no-hitters have been recorded. Dock is the only pitcher to ever claim he accomplished his while high on LSD. Now they have made this “Dockumentary” about Dock, which I cannot wait to see.FULL STORY
This week’s dose of surf porn features legendary waterman / lifeguard / bodysurfer, Mark Cunningham at home doing his thing in some tasty beachbreak nugs. Enjoy!
Jon Rose is a former pro surfer who founded Waves For Water, an organization dedicated to bringing clean water to those who need it all around the world. Jon is a simple man who lives a not-so-simple life traveling the world 3 weeks out of every month. His “home” consists of two locations: an apartment in New York City and a cabin in Topanga Canyon. It’s a bi-coastal lifestyle that has proven to be efficient and necessary to maintain stability in Jon’s busy life. We caught up with Jon in both his NYC pad and at home in Topanga to hear more about the crazy life he leads, and to hear how he likes to spend his few precious days at both his east and west coast homes. Check out the full interview and photo feature here:FULL STORY
As a goofy footer who has had the very fortunate experience to have tasted just a morsel of what Peru has to offer in the form of the longest left in the world, I am literally drooling with jealousy and nostalgic stoke over this video… This past February Cyrus Sutton and Kepa Acero scored perfectly shaped Chicama on the first South swell of the season. Cyrus met up with Kepa in the North coast of Peru hoping to get some late season North swells. Nothing came so they traveled to the Andes to see Machu Picchu and experience some Incan culture. A week into their stay an early season South swell prompted a short flight back to catch one of the world’s longest lefts at Chicama. The waves weren’t big but the sandbars were good. Here’s a few highlights of their trip.Via Korduroy TV
I had the pleasure of working on this design-build project a few years ago, but it is just now gettin’ some internet lovin’. A super fun, well designed project that has a better story more than anything. Hunter Leggitt decided to design and build this little 1,100 sf Lake house in Lake Isabella, CA with a team of Architecture students with little to no building experience. I was lucky enough to be one of those free laborers. It opened my eyes to custom design-build projects and I have been hungry for more ever since. Lake Isabella is known for white water rafting on the Kern River, but what drew the owner, Jonathan Watts, to this location was the wind surfing on the Lake. This serves as his wind surfing and family get away from their busy lives in Santa Monica. Check out the full story on Arch Daily.www.archdaily.com
