Ah, the simple pleasures of surfing til dark. Watching the sun go down, saying to yourself “just one more and I’ll go in”, lying to yourself, not seeing the next set wave, just enjoying the feeling, being alone in stillness. Here is a short little video by John Lynch that captures the feeling with Spencer Hayes. I wish there were some waves so I could surf til dark too!

Check out this amazing bus, designed by architecture grad student Hank Butitta. Somewhat disinterested with school, Butitta was tired of designing buildings that didn’t exist for imaginary clients and wanted to work with his hands to put some of his ideas into practice. So, he bought a bus off Craigslist and along with some help from photographer Justin Evidon and brother Vince, the trio spent nearly 14 weeks converting the ramshackle old bus into a sleek, modular living environment complete with a kitchen, bathroom, beds, storage, and even a floor made from wood panels stripped from an old gymnasium. Follow their travels over at Hank Bought a Bus.Via: www.thisiscolossal.com
Soul Train is an American musical variety show that aired in syndication from 1971 to 2006.

The series was created by Don Cornelius, who also served as its first host and executive producer. When paired with Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” Soul Train has never felt more relevant.Via www.good.is

A couple weeks ago, we posted about these radical new shark repelling wetsuits. Now here they are for sale online through Radiator’s website. Sharks actually have very good eyesight but they see colors and shapes differently than the way we humans see them. Sharks see in black and white, but their perception of shading is very acute and impacted by the ‘reflective spectrum’ in the water (how bands of colour react to light). Radiator’s shark deterrent dive wetsuits translate scientific data into precise designs, offering two strategies for protection. Buy one here for $450:www.radiator.net
