The latest Arcade Fire music video for “We Exist” features Andrew Garfield as a young cross dresser in middle America struggling with gender identity. Directed by David Wilson.

Meet Anna Ehrgott, the quintessential California surfer girl. In fact, I’m pretty sure there are a few Beach Boys songs about her. Anna spends her days outdoors, hiking, sewing board bags, picture taking, but mostly surfing Southern California’s many point breaks. Most people would recognize her in the lineups at First Point and Topanga. We recently took a little trip up the canyon to pay miss Anna a visit and have her show us the beautiful place where she calls home.

Portland-based Poler Camping Stuff, a retailer of vintage inspired camping gear and apparel, has launched its new vehicle rooftop tent:  La Tente. With its construction of heavy-duty waterproof canvas, aluminum poles and ladder, La Tente attaches to standard Thule or Yakima bars and can be placed on just about any vehicle that will accommodate it. The weighing 140lbs, the open dimensions are 56″ W x 96″ L x 50″ H and it is 56″ W x 48″ L x 14″ H closed. Also with a queen sized foam mattress and plenty of ventilation, La Tente is ready to take those camp vibes anywhere on the road. Dr. Dan Douglas is back to tell us all about it in this rad lil retro style ad directed by Alex Craig and starring John Stewart!

Check out this beautifully art directed video from Alek Parker for DL Skateboards reminiscent of the good ol’ days of California cruising.

What’s better than a surf shack? A surf shack on wheels. Last fall we linked up with Dylan Graves during a pit stop in New York City after several months on the road chasing waves up and down the east coast for hurricane season in his Dodge Sprinter. Check out his home on the road in our latest Indoek Surf Shack.

Happy belated Star Wars day! To offset the shitty news that JJ Abrams is directing a new Star Wars episode with the weird looking guy from Girls, Vans just released this rad spot to introduce a special edition Vans x Star Wars collection launching June 2014. Filmed at the Vans Off the Wall Skatepark in Huntington Beach, CA of a skate contest set in 1980. After legendary skateboarder Christian Hosoi finishes his run, a rookie wookiee (played by another legend — Steve Caballero) rips the bowl and receives mixed scores from the judges. Tony Alva, Jeff Grosso and Vans surf team riders Leila Hurst and Alex Knost (doing his best Spicoli) can be seen cheering in the crowd alongside Stormtroopers, Jawas and Chewbacca. May the force be with you as you rip your next bowl section.

Every year around Spring / Summer we start to see surfing’s influence creep more into mainstream culture, particularly with fashion and lifestyle brands. Usually the result is pretty gag inducing, but this time CB2 has done a pretty good job of capturing a laid back California rustic & retro Hawaiian vibe with their “Sur” Collection. Sure, they still have a hula girl in there, and tiki glasses (not to mention a football for Point Break night sessions on the beach, bro), but the collection uses some legit designers like Scout Regalia, Natasha Wittke, Todd Patterson and Ryan Harris, who even made a custom mini Simmons style twin fin. So in case you want to order your next summer board from a furniture company, or just add a lil surf style to your pad, check out the full collection here:

We have no idea what the title of this video means, but there are hot naked chicks running around Montauk with Dion Agius and others from Globe’s band of hipsters, which looks like fun. Here’s to summer days and nights ahead!
