Welcome to our 27 Frames series. We sent 27 single use cameras out to some of our favorite photographers, they shot stuff with it, then mailed it back to us. We developed the film and are sharing the results with you (and the photographers) now. In this instant, digital age, we want to pay homage to a snapshot photo process we grew up with ourselves — waiting for the film to develop and being surprised by the results. These 27 Frames belong to Dustin Beatty.FULL STORY
Ryan Lovelace is a surfboard building, dog loving, small business operating surfer who has a fondness for projects that fall into the ‘easier said than done’ category. His surf shop, Trim is an eclectic store and local hangout in Santa Barbara where you can also find a colorful collection of Ryan’s hand shaped boards. Until recently, Ryan and his girlfriend Katie have been living in their magical converted bus known as the Cosmic Collider.FULL STORY
The Tiny Mess is a cookbook about people, places, small kitchens, and the delicious meals that come out of them. It is a whimsical hodgepodge of recipes, culinary adventure, medium-format photography, and, of course, petite and inspiring cooking spaces that prove constraints are nothing but an invitation for creativity. From buses and tree houses to sailboats, off-the-grid mountain cabins, converted rail cars, and the refrigerator of dumpster-diving urban freegans, The Tiny Mess is alive with the story of people, the meals they love, and the anything-but-ordinary places they cook in. The book will have over 30 recipes curated by Maddie Gordon and Mary Gonzalez from the people they’ve met and–in some of the more exotic cases–they work with the cook to make the recipes more accessible to the home cook. Throughout the book there will also be one-off photos from inspiring tiny kitchens highlighting spacial over-comings and inventive cooking solutions. The photos are all taken by Trevor Gordon and are almost entirely shot on medium format film, with some 35mm and the odd digital. Maddie and Trevor live on 36′ sailboat in Santa Barbara and often frequent the Channel Islands. Catching fresh fish for meals when away from the dock is a daily routine. Mary Gonzalez cooks in her 30′ trailer, tends to her vibrant vegetable and herb garden and comes up with delicious vegan meals.

Ty Williams is a unique character with a travelled artistic style of his own that we just can’t get enough of. Anyone who knows Ty can tell you he is hard man to pin down. We had been trying to do a Surf Shacks feature on his home in Florida for some time now only to find him up north for the summer (then Fall). By the time we caught up with him at his parents’ horse farm in Maine, he was literally headed out of the country the next day for a two month trip to India. Luckily Ty is the man and was down for a quick and dirty shoot day while packing his bags for a long journey. Here is a glimpse at his Maine crash pad and cozy studio space. Film by Gabe Reuben. Photography by Nick LaVecchia. Music: “Long Journey” by Allah-Las. Check out more of Ty’s work here:tywilliams.tumblr.com

We love a good hammock – I mean, who doesn’t? They’re great for a good nap in the shade, always the perfect spot to read, drink a beer or have your post surf chill sesh. We recently caught up with the good folks at Mission Hammocks to get some tips on where else we can hang these ultimate lounging accessories besides outdoors. A hammock is an extremely versatile item that you may not realize also makes a great item for use inside your home as well as in the backyard. Investing in a hammock could give you some much-needed seating space for the inside of your home or provide a huge number of helpful solutions for your interior decorating. Here are some of the top ways you could be using a hammock inside your home.FULL STORY
There are many ways to interpret the word canvas. A wave can be a canvas for a surfboard, drawing constant lines through movement. A piece of ruled paper in the hands of an author can quickly become a pivotal moment in a story and a catalyst for the imagination. Together, Banks Journal & Slowtide have transformed the simple beach towel into an exclusive canvas for some of their favorite photographers to capture moments in time and share with you. They recently followed one featured photographer, Nick LaVecchia, around his hometown in Maine to better understand his places for inspiration when he uses a camera in lieu of a paintbrush and a strip of film as a canvas.Slowtide.co
Jeff Mansfield discovered his love for building surfboards after a skateboarding injury left him sidelined and yearning for another creative outlet. From raw blank to “fine-tuned wave riding machine,” Jeff shapes, glasses and sands his boards all by hand at The Heavens in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
