​CRNT is a multi-­platform surf report app that delivers the first at-­a-­glance view of current surf conditions. ​For the 1.7 million surfers across North America, CRNT puts an end to the time ­intensive task of browsing data ­heavy websites and provides a quick, well-designed data visualization of your favorite surf spots. The designer behind the app, Raleigh Felton is a personal friend, so we had a chance to catch up quickly about designing a better surf report app and what it was like making one of the first apps for the Apple Watch.

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:

As the second weekend of Coachella is gearing up and I am still trying to snap back into the reality of a desk job after weekend 1, it’s hard to believe what all went down in the week leading up to festival. I had the pleasure of being on the build team for the Do Lab stage at Coachella this year, and also worked in conjunction with Hunter Leggitt Studio for the suspended front of house (aka ‘SS Biscuit’ tree house boat). As an Architectural designer, words cannot describe the feeling of finishing a week-long build hours before 90 thousand people interact with your creation.

In a fresh take on the video lookbook, Volume 8 finds Roark held up in Dakar, Senegal navigating the endless winding streets and dusty, sun-drenched desert. Bright color permeates the desaturated landscape and colorful personalities prevail in a sometimes desolate swath of Africa. The collection is inspired by West African traditional textiles, racing, mystery and a fair amount of hard-earned sweat.

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:

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.
