Devon Howard’s presence in surfing is omnipresent and fortunately to its benefit. The second-generation San Diegan’s surfing, spurred by his mother, highlights some of the most balletic, graceful, and exacting approaches to riding a wave. Howard’s long arcs and beautiful s-turns can be seen in Thomas Campbell’s seminal films The Seedling and Sprout to classics like Single Fin Yellow and One California Day. On shore, Howard served as the editor of Longboard magazine and has become a regular contributor to The Surfer’s Journal. He still haunts the reefs near his home, and after years piecing together work to keep himself in the water, he owns and operates his boutique marketing agency, Blu Sky Collective, in San Diego. In 2014, his nimble footwork won him the Deus 9 Foot & Single competition in Indonesia, and he’ll be featured in Tin Ojeda’s forthcoming Free Jazz Vein this year. Howard’s deep well of personal history bound up in surf culture alongside his work and surfing are why we began this series, and it’s a boon to have his take included.

Panthalassa joined Oceana and its team of marine biologists on its first North Sea expedition. They soon learned that the North Sea is no longer the paradise for whales, plankton and seabirds it used to be. “Into the North” is a visual ode to the North Sea, the men and women working under extreme conditions to study and protect our oceans, but most important, about the very cause that is turning this oasis into a desert: Overfishing.

Just a little dose of weirdness from Kirsten Lepore to disrupt your typical daily routine. Enjoy.

Tyler Warren is a renaissance man in the surf world who epitomizes the stylish, quiet, and cool guy both in and out of the water. Known for his free-surfing on a variety of board shapes, Tyler defines the word “classic” while also being part of the progressive ride everything generation. Aside from being a professional surfer, artist, and surfboard shaper, it is also worth noting that out of all the surfers’ homes I have visited, I have never seen a larger, more colorful, and diverse collection of surfboards as I have in Tyler’s pad.

I used to see Dylan as a goofy curly-haired kid with a wide grin full of braces all over surf breaks between Malibu and Santa Barbara, in the water and on the beach, always with a camera in hand, always stoked. He would later become the lucky heir to my backyard mini ramp. I told him if he could get it out of the yard, he could have it. Sure enough, he and his two buddies somehow managed to cut the whole damn thing in half, move it onto a trailer, and drive it up to Ventura from Venice, towed behind Dylan’s van (which he lived in at the time). Granted, it took two trips, but an incredible feat nonetheless. Dylan is now a well-traveled young man with a more refined style behind the lens—though he hasn’t lost the youthful glimmer in his eye and is still perpetually stoked. His live/work space in Ventura is a true reflection of his adventurous spirit and “down for whatever” personality.

Jordan Blumetti is a writer and a filmmaker. He writes poetry, fiction, non-fiction, soppy, saccharine notes, occasionally an email and all the aforementioned with exacting grace. He hails from Florida and has spent the last few years bouncing around from Los Angeles to New York to France to Spain to Israel to I’ve lost track, damnit. You can find some of his work in Haaretz, ESM, and Nowness to name a few. And at the moment, he and his recently refurbished Winnebago are putzing along somewhere on the East Coast. If you see him, honk.

Justin Quintal, known as Quinny or Justeeeeeeeeen to some, is a young pro surfer, born and raised for the most part in Florida, calling Jacksonville home the majority of his life. Quintal is the newest addition to the Vans Surf team and the head of Black Rose Manufacturing, a small, intimate board building brand headed up with his long-time shaper turned family member Ricky Carroll. Quintal lives in Jacksonville Beach, travels frequently, and like most of us Floridians enjoys a good cocktail, time spent outside, his dog, and knows how to tell a joke very, very well. Beyond that, Quintal is a southern guy, quick to hold a door or help you up. He’s often remarked as the first one in and last one out in the water, even in the most severe of conditions. He’s spent the past year traveling more than he might have in the previous five years combined, and much of his travels have been to lesser known, out of the way spots, often clad in thick rubber. Keep an eye on this upstart.

Ashton Goggans is the editor at large for Surfer magazine. He’s a writer, blogger, author, journalist, columnist, reporter, impossibly stubborn literary young man whose work has appeared in The Surfer’s Journal, Vice, n+1, Bon Apétit, among many other blogs, newspapers, and publications. “Ash”—as he is known by family and friends—has incessantly served as the fire under my ass since we first met back home in our little corner of the world, Sarasota County, Florida. In the past few years, he has bounced back and forth between New York City, the Gulf Coast, San Francisco, San Diego, and finally Los Angeles. He is one of the most gregarious, warm persons I know, sometimes ineffably so. Goggans is working on his first novel and a new podcast to premiere later this year, and he has a mean, mean pig-dog (backside barrel stance).
