This past fall Patagonia opened its first surf shop on the east coast on the heart of the Bowery in New York City and to help welcome them Indoek spent some time getting to know the ins and outs of the new shop and its employees. We were even lucky enough to escape the city and find some swell for a little logging session with shop manager DL Tashjian and assistant manager (and former ASP Longboard World Champ) Schuyler McFerran. If you haven’t gotten a chance to swing by the unique Patagonia shop to see what it’s all about or even if you have, here’s a special look at Patagonia Bowery in this Indoek original content piece narrated by Patagonia’s DL Tashjian.FULL STORY

Alternative Apparel has recently started doing artist co-op capsule collections, the latest of which features the work of Venice-based design studio, ITAL/C… I was going to try to write this objectively, but screw it – what’s the point of having a blog if you can’t shamelessly self-promote your own work every once in a while? The collection consists of mens and womens spring fashions, a couple limited edition poster prints (only 50 of each), and is inspired by boats, geometry, and Eames, so we called it “mid-century nautical”, which seemed a little better than #boatlife. You can find it in all Alternative Apparel store locations and online here:www.alternativeapparel.com

Who better to give a drive by tour of Venice “Muscle Beach” than the Governator himself? This video is really weird and pretty much speaks for itself… The thing that amazes me after watching even a minute of it is that this guy was actually elected as governor of the state of California.
