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
As a northeast transplant currently living in Southern California, I can certainly appreciate the need to escape the brutal, seemingly never-ending winters of back home – it’s what made me move out here in the first place almost a decade ago. That said, living out here in Never Never Land has made me softer and softer over the years. I find myself wearing a 4/3 in the mild winters and deciding not to surf even on days that would’ve had me up with the sun back home. It is refreshing to see a wide-eyed video oozing with stoke like this from a fellow yankee who is just amped to be out here for a month long visit and escape the cold back home. Thank you Hayden Brosnan for reminding us spoiled Cali folks how good we have it out here.www.gringo-radio.com
This short video from Vermont’s notorious skateboard tribe, The Worble which embodies the joy and pure fun in skating with your buds. The coffin ride, wipe outs and goofing off reminds me why I started skating in the first place, its really fun.

We have always been huge fans of Almond’s special product collabs. ‘Wax and Wool’ is a collection inspired by the heritage of Woolrich, the Original Outdoor company, and the coastal lifestyle of California’s Almond Surfboards. Each piece is 100% Made in The USA and reflects their different backgrounds and the common appreciation for timeless, quality goods. The clothing, which includes both men’s and women’s pieces, was designed for a perfect day outside at the beach. The collection includes graphic tees, blankets (with a pocket to store your essentials), tote bag, henleys, sweatshirts and corduroy walk shorts. Also included in the collaboration are custom Woolrich inspired surfboards that, like the rest of the line, combines classic California Almond aesthetic and incorporates hits of iconic Woolrich patterns. Each surfboard was custom built and hand shaped by Almond using prints inspired by Woolrich- including the classic buffalo check, a topographic print celebrating the outdoors, and even the “sheep on a surfboard” logo created for the collaboration. The collection can be found both at woolrich.com and almondsurfboards.com as well as both companies’ select retail partners.www.almondsurfboards.com

Friends of Indoek, Ty Williams and Dustin Miller made this beautiful little short film entitled, “Coquille” that is both conceptually and stylistically their own. About his first attempt at directing film, Ty says, “I wanted to try working outside of my normal mediums. I wanted to make something dreamy, unsettling and odd. I think we pulled off this on some level and I look forward to working on a larger project down the road.” For more radness from Ty that you can wear instead of watch, check out Notes Brand:www.shop-notes.com
Kassia Wax is infused with wood from the South American Palo Santo tree, which is used by Shaman and medicine people for its healing and energy clearing properties. The triangle design breaks into 4 smaller pieces so you always have a corner for faster, easier waxing. Gitcha sum here:www.kassiasurf.com
Do you sometimes feel like it would be really strange (and possibly depressing) to watch a montage of your everyday routine – to watch yourself perform your daily habits day in and day out? What if that is just one version of you caught in that monotonous, looping routine? All you need to do is break that routine, take a chance, be bold and act a little “out of character” to lead to something new. This short film is a look at the infinite possibilities within the everyday. Following a day in the life of Vincent, “Subject X” and his many variations that exist throughout the universe. The story begins to fracture into different threads when he follows a would be lover down the street.
