Filmed in Cornwall, a stretch of sand along the southwest coast of the United Kingdom, this short film, which comes courtesy of Swami's Surf Shop, offers an insightful glimpse into the mind of Sam Bleakley, an English author, explorer and two time European longboard champion.
Last month we celebrated something. Two Tribes, seemingly connected by their desire to disconnect, their desire to unplug from it all, to define their own aesthetic ideals. It was an idea, that these two types could come together and appreciate what the other has to offer. It was a celebration that had to happen. And as far as I can tell, it worked. We had a good time. One that lasted well into the evening. There were many motorcycles, lots of logs and next to no bullshit. Now, forty some days in the future, our friends at Curbsyde Productions have put together this short bit of film highlighting our event. So sit back and relive the revelry. And if you're interested, you can find a few images on Facebook.
A short bit of film featuring my friend Foster, who shares his thoughts on #vanlife after having spent more than a year living in his Syncro Vanagon. Essential items include: avocados, an iPhone, tinted windows and the ability to pee in an orthostatic position. Video comes courtesy of Korduroy.TV
After sorting through tons of timber and finding the right size wood screws, we headed to my grandparent's to put things into place. First came the frame; a two part structure consisting of four 20" tall boxes connected by two 66" long pieces of lumber. Once the frame was fitted, we cut ten 72" long 2x4s and set them two inches apart across the top. Then we secured everything using 3.5" wood screws. The end result: a 22" tall, 72" wide and 66" long sleeping platform perfect for two people!
From the film Gastrologging comes this short surfboarding excursion to the Wavegarden in San Sebastián, Spain - a man made wave making machine "for people not fortunate enough to have an ocean break nearby." It's the best bit of their film, as far as I'm concerned. Logs and little waves. Wonderful.

Saturday the surf was small. Real small. Four or five hours, a few waves, then we cooked food over a campfire, drank blackberry gin fizz shit and passed out prematurely. Sunday it stood up a bit. Spent seven hours in the surf. I let Joe talk me into a sunset session. The gods were good. Hips to head for an hour and a half. Hung my first five on that big pig bastard. What a way to end the weekend.
