Departure Delayed

Happy New Year folks! I don’t know about you, but I hope, like me, you all had the best start to your New Year in perfect company. And unlike me, you didn’t get diagnosed the following day with pleurisy.

One day you’re up, the next you’re down (a lung). Whatever… All I know is, this is the start of a brand spanking new year and it’s time to get stoked! (Once I start breathing again).

A film by John John Florence

The Smokehouse

I’m not really into men’s magazines, you know GQ and all that shit. Then Smith Journal came along and it turned out nice again… This film by Commoner Films is a true reflection of the excellent print magazine.

London Surf Film Festival 2012

One of my films was short-listed for last year’s London Surf Film Festival. I didn’t expect it to win, and I wasn’t surprised when it didn’t. There were some amazing films short-listed. I was just pleased that people had voted for it.

This year’s festival will surely be as fresh. Below is a film entered by John Eldridge and Mathilda Friström. The film is one of 6 short surf films shot in Indonesia during the filming of the fictional ‘Sink Swim’. This short aims to capture the raw energy of the Grajagan surfing experience. John is surfing a 7’4″ singlefin gun reminiscent of the boards which were around at the time of Grajagan’s discovery, circa 1972.

Karl Mackie Online

Cornwall based surf photographer Karl Mackie has just launched his new website. It’s packed with his photography, design work, and a new blog… Check it out at: www.karlmackie.com

Karl Mackie was the first artist to exhibit under the ‘Inhouse Studio’ banner, in which I curate art exhibitions of work created by artists and artisans inspired by Cornwall and our surf culture. Giving artists a new platform in which to present their work.

If you missed this first exhibition here’s a sound-slide of Karl setting up for the show and discussing the inspiration behind his work.

Field Notes

I’m a stationery geek. I love note books. I’ve written in many note books over the years. Moleskine are good in every size, soft and hard cover. Ciak are an indulgence with their soft leather covers handmade in Italy. But nothing, absolutely nothing compares to Field Notes note books. I use them every day. Wherever I am I always have one with me. With the exception of the shower. When will they make a waterproof one?

Co-founder of the Field Notes brand Aaron Draplin has been collecting note books for years, “rescuing them” from obscurity. He talks about Field Notes’ ancestry in this little film…
