+THE SEA OF POSSIBILITY+ JACK LYNCH


+THE SEA OF POSSIBILITY+ JACK LYNCH from Nicholas Damen on Vimeo.
The Sea of Possibility.

"I fly in on the last flight to the Island Tasmania, that heart shape landmass that if drawn incorrectly in primary school just made your map of Australia look really average. Its cold, 6 degrees cold, for me that is pretty cold, for girls hitting downtown Hobart though, it appeared that it wasn’t too chilly at all.

We trek down a beaten dirt farm track, as we break the hill the sea comes into view. It’s a point swell. Job on, the water is cold, feet numbing cold. The locals are welcoming; don’t know how they strip down on the rocks in the cold though.

Still undecided if Tasmanians have Internet, refreshingly though, no one knows that Reynolds has a new neck beard out this season. There are no neck beards here, just full beards on Men, Men that withstand the cold, year in year out to surf the Point Swells. No Loggers either with trailing bat tails, but in there place on the Points a surprising number of bodyboarders.

The swell lasted a day. A venture through a leech-infested Tasmanian National Park the following day provided no more possibilities for another surf. So my time was up on the apple isle, an early flight out the next morning brought my impromptu surf mission to an end. I came to the conclusion that Tasmania holds a sea of possibility and I will be returning, perhaps in the summer time."

SURFED.AT

What is Surfed.at?

Surfed.at is a growing directory of thousands of surf spots around the world. It lets you discover new places to surf, record and rate the places you want to try.


What’s up with the spot ratings?

To help you find the world’s awesomest surf spots, the rating of each spot takes a few things in to consideration. The first thing is pretty obvious, the rating that you the user gives it. So no spot will be given a good rating if people think its crap. Now, there is one thing we all hate more than anything, and that is crowds. So when more people add a spot, the spot’s ranking goes down because it’s being spoilt by crowds. This is calculated like a bell curve, so a spot gets a better score as people add it but when a certain amount people has added it, the score starts to diminish. Make sense?

The third thing that influences a score is a bit trickier, it is the remoteness of the spot. We reckon a spot with a good ranking that is far removed from another spot and has few people that has surfed there is going to be one of those fairy tale spots that we all dream about surfing. That is why you’ll see places like Teahupo ranking really well.

Now how about my ranking?

As you add your surf spots, you inherit the points from the spot.

Squared Surfboards

My first contact with Squared Surfboards, was with Justin McEdward portfolio at Behance Network.
After exchanging some emails with Justin and Casey, here is one of the first shapes of Squared Surfboards a 5'10" hollow wood surfboard. Excellent photos by Justin! I want to thank you both for sharing your work and giving me the opportunity to publish.

"Squared surf boards are designed and built by owner Casey Mullen. His goal is to provide high quality boards made from natural renewable resources. Casey prefers using Northern White Cedar and White Oak. The wood species are glued together forming a hollow, light weight, and strong surf board. There is no gas plug in the deck because the wood breathes as the internal air expands and contracts. By using wood rather than synthetic materials Squared seeks to offer a board that provides greater ding resistance and flexion properties, both of which will result in a longer lasting board. Each surf board is custom built to match the riders vision of the perfect board. The length, profile, volume, rail and bottom shapes, as well as skeg options are all up to the individual rider.

Casey is New Hampshire based and rides throughout the new england area. He is currently offering free demos for anyone interested in surfing wood." - Justin McEdward.

Casey Mullen - "I design and build hollow wood surfboards. The board is 5' 10" and weighs 12.5 lbs. It has a very low volume towards the tail and tapers to an 1 7/8" thick at it's widest point just under 21". I have rode it for three years and have close to 100 sessions on it."

Scotch Bright Board Art - Surf Sufficient by Korduroy TV

Reblogged from Korduroy TV


Scotch Bright Board Art - Surf Sufficient from www.KORDUROY.tv on Vimeo.
Influenced by accomplished San Diego shaper Jeff McCallum, Bill Sager tapped his design background to refine a patterning technique based on strategically removing sections of gloss and polish on resin tinted boards with nothing more than a rough sponge and masking tape. The result is a subtle design that is really cool looking. Check it out!

WAVEGLIDERS | Interview by Korduroy contributor Carlos Saez



Intro & interview by Korduroy contributor Carlos Saez.

Surfers love surfboards, regardless of design or fashion trends, we have learned that we should ride whatever kind of board that fires our imagination. A surfboard is the link between the ocean and us. It is the object that provides us with that spiritual and mystical connection. It is our brush to draw lines in our water canvas. It is a magic tool to share the stoke, and is always a great feeling when we first put our hands on a new board. Many of our sport's shapers are not into this for the money, but to achieve the goal of making a living doing what they love and making people happy. I had the pleasure of visiting beautiful Portugal and meeting this crew of people that make beautiful surfboards, they were so welcoming and I enjoyed a lot to talk to them about what they do best. It is not a shaping bay, not a workshop, it is a bureau of stoked personnel. The Wave Gliders.

Free and Easy by Greg Macgillivray and Jim Freeman





Surfers live differently than other people. They live a unique, carefree life. To a surfer only two things are important: the sun and the surf, and this free and easy attitude is depicted perfectly in the classic color film "Free and Easy".
