A Few Hours In The Life Of Surfboard Builders

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

Surfboard builders have it rough. They’ve got to cruise surf shops, hang out in funky work shops and let shiftless surf bloggers tag along with them all day. Oh yeah, then there are the life threatening tacos. JP (surfysurfy) and Manuel Caro (Mandala) getting it done, for the rest of us.

A Way Around

Sometimes when you are headed south, the road will just end. If the destination is good enough though, they’ll always be a way around.

Cover Girl -or- Maggiezine

Friday, November 9th, 2007

Maggie Marsek has had quite a week. She’s had a birthday and has two photos in a show in Brazil called FestivAlma alongside photographers like Patrick Trefz, Jamie Brisick, David Pu’u and Sean Davey. It didn’t stop there though, her first print mag editorial feature came out the other day in Brazilian surf magazine Alma Surf and coolest of all, so did her first cover, also on Alma.

UPDATE: All photos curtisy of Jair Bortoleto, who conducted the interview and snagged a copy of the mag, for Maggie before they hit the streets. Thanks Jair!

The cover image is from a shoot at SanO with Alex Knost and crew. Their scene is funktified and colorful, which helped Maggie come away with tons of great photos from a morning of lousy surf. It took seeing it for me to think so, but I love that Alma went with it for the cover. Wet Suits, Damp Towels, surfboards and surfmobiles are usually a clutter that could never take the center stage. The combination of their scene and Maggie’s color and composition work transform a chaotic jumble of gear into a Rockwellesque painting of the core trappings of our lifestyle.

The interview (all in Portuguese) is long and chocked full of images Maggie has captured while enjoying the surf life in Socal and Baja. More photos after the jump…

70store & Marsek Prints

Monday, December 4th, 2006

Some of you may have noticed a banner on the blog in the last few weeks touting prints by 70′s favorite photographer Maggie Marsek. Unfortunately, I’m a bit too busy at the moment to get the 70 store up and running. I’m hoping I’ll get the time to straighten out the paper work in early 07. In the meantime, anyone still wanting to purchase prints, can email Maggie through her site.
