Shelter Surf Shop, Grand Re-Opening Saturday Night!

Thursday, March 27th, 2008

Saturday March 29th, Shelter Surf Shop will be celebrating their spiffy new location on 4th St in Long Beach. Kim and Graham really know how to put on an event, as their last gig, the Ether book tour was full of creative and in-trim surfers.

The re-opening will serve double duty as the opening night for the art of Estibahn Bojorquez. I’m bummed I’m going to miss it due to a last minute trip to the east coast, but if you are anywhere nearby, do yourself a favor and stop by.

Sex Wax Dryer Sheet

Thursday, March 27th, 2008

I just washed, and dried a plastic wrapped green bar of sex wax, and can report it makes a surprisingly refreshing dryer sheet puck. It leaves your clothes a little tacky though.

Swallowtail And Mandala Customs

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

Digging the new logo at the Swallow Tail Society. For some reason, I haven’t visited Mandala Custom Shapes since Manuel created his blog. It’s gotten a refresh since then… don’t miss the gallery full of board art.

AB3 Photos – The Cops

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

There was some drama at this year’s anything but three. It seems some athoritiiii just can’t believe that a bunch of people could organize a gathering that large without commercial interests involved. Read the captions in the slide show for the whole story, with embellishment where required.

Maggie is hosting 70 or so photos of sick boards, rad shapers and surfers on her site, but she thought you might want to be able to comment and such on these here.

It was great to see lots of you, and even better to ride your boards. Please send ding repair bills for the boards I broke to :

16,000 Popouts

Monday, March 24th, 2008

There are 16,000 popouts sitting in a warehouse in Brevard County Florida, retailers can’t sell. I’d laugh but they can’t sell them because all board sales are down, not just the fake ones.

Momo

Shakas and Single Fins has some pictures up of Mollusk NY and he mentions one of the artists is my bro MOMO. MOMO is the real deal, traveling and making his living doing art all over the world. He’s an original, for sure.

Bounty Of The Sea

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

Found in a thread on MetaFilter about the Central California Salmon collapse.

“[once upon a time there were] cod shoals “so thick by the shore that we hardly have been able to row a boat through them.” There were six- and seven-foot-long codfish weighing as much as 200 pounds. There were great banks of oysters as large as shoes. At low tide, children were sent to the shore to collect 10-, 15-, even 20-pound lobsters with hand rakes for use as bait or pig feed. Eight- to 12-foot sturgeon choked New England rivers, and salmon packed streams from the Hudson River to Hudson’s Bay. Herring, squid and capelin (a small open-water fish seven inches long) spawning runs were so gigantic they astonished observers for more than four centuries”

Horse Meat Sushi?

From the previous link… Horse meat as a substitute for Bluefin.

Life Without Bluefin

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

‘the duty to save the [blue fin tuna] ultimately “lies on the heads of the consumer.’ From a NYT article titled Ready for Life Without Bluefin Tuna? Focuses heavily on the imapact to sushi.
