Dane Peterson’s flickr account is pretty freaking rad. Check these shots out.

Seafoam Stoke

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

Generally, I’d just link to Pinniped original post but I’ve replayed this video so many times now, I feel I have to have it on the blog.

The film for clip is about Sea Surfboards, whom I’ve linked to many times. Be sure to check out “the sea word” and the gallery.

It’s from a flick called “Little Black Wheels”, but all I can find on the web about it is here and it’s not much. Anyone have a link?

I’m really digging the style of the first surfer, Johnny Abegg. From what I can tell he’s is/was a sponsorless journeyman WQS guy, maxing out the credit cards to make a run at the WQS. Seems he’s filmed it all and titled it appropriately…On Credit. It won’t be fun paying those off over the next 8 years.

The song is “The Stars Are All Stoned” by Dane Tucquet (myspace). Half the times I’ve replayed the video were to hear the song. This took me forever to find, but you can preview and buy all the songs on his album here. I wouldn’t use the site. I payed for that song, and they won’t give it to me. UPDATE: Got it. It just took some extra communication between servers, cause the internet pipes to Australia are so long.

Rip Curl Pro Still Searching For Decent Video

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

The Rip Curl Pro starts today. In comparison to the Billabong Pro JBAY site which was super fast and easy to use, the Rip Curl Pro site is a massive failure. Security cert to view video? Popup warnings and buffering? Please. I bet a review of user engagement statistics from both sites would make Rip Curl execs cry.

Tuna Overfished

Mediterranean bluefin tuna are being overfished by 35,000 tons a year.

Young Pros Whining

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

LA Times article consisting of young pros whining about how tough touring is. It’s just about as insipid as it sounds.

Shark Drive By

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

Sequence images of a shark doing a drive by on a New Smyrna Beach surfer. Wild. The natural law of the ocean is, if it’s bigger than you, it can eat you. So why is a smaller shark so bold about cruising up to a larger animal? If there were more natural prey, would this encounter have happened?

Food For Thought

Food For Thought… great post on the gulf’s dead zone at the blog SeaHugger.

Hulltastic

Friday, July 25th, 2008

Took me a while to figure out if the blogger, McHully Hullkin Hull, of the blog Hulltastic Voyage is super sick of hulls and poking fun at them, or is all about them. Then I started noticing the quality of some of these images… great ideas, good photoshopping, and great type work. McHully really loves him some hull.
