1965 Harley Davidson Panhead Chopper FLH


1965 Harley Davidson Panhead Chopper FLH from Jon Glover on Vimeo.
This 1965 Harley Davidson Panhead Chopper was purchased brand new in 1965 by the previous owner. A few years later the owner decided to heavily modify the motorcycle by raking the neck, molding the joints, adding a bates head light, Anderson pegs and a 10 over front end with a 21" spool front hub. The bike was ridden hard for years and preserved it's late 60's heritage. The owner passed away a few years ago and Ty was able to make a deal with the family to keep the bike's time capsule soul on the road. After a quick once over for maintenance and a safety check the bike is back on the road.

Film & Edit by: Jonathan Glover
Music: B.R.M.C
Production Assistants: Kurt Quackenbush, Bekah Long

This bike has soul and character that no modern bike will ever have. You can see the miles and stories in every paint chip, scratch and faded chrome.

49 Year Ride | Generations On The Road | Starring S&J Motorcycles


49 Year Ride - Generations On The Road - Starring S&J Motorcycles from Clutch Monkey on Vimeo.
Produced and Directed by Marc Bencivenga of Clutch Monkey, this short documentary focuses on the rough and two-wheel-tumble life of local Santa Rosan Steve Leandro and his shop S&J Motorcycles. Marc was able to uncover some Super 8 footage from 1974 of the 'Run To the Redwoods", which Steve was a part of, and some 1972 Super 8 footage of the influences in Steve's life to create a film that acknowledges Steve's humble beginings and honors his current impact on future vintage chopper loving generations. Except for the riding shots and old Super 8, this film was shot on the iPhone 4.

The Drifter



Hurley and Warner Bros. Records are teaming up to release the much-anticipated autobiographical surf movie about Rob Machado, The Drifter. The film will have a limited theatrical release and will also be available on DVD. The Drifter is directed by Poor Specimen's Taylor Steele. Word on the street is that The Drifter was shot entirely in high-definition.

Rob Machado and Taylor Steele spent over six months in Indonesia collecting footage for the film. As Indo is home to some of the world's greatest waves, it is not far-flung to believe that the world's most famous soul surfer had the surf trip of a lifetime. But the movie goes beyond that, The Drifter also documents Rob's search for life's deeper meaning. The surf trip ends up taking him on a soul-searching journey where he eventually finds himself in Indonesia's outermost reaches with nothing but a surfboard, his journal and a tent. Machado's conclusion after scoring more perfect waves than any surfer could ever wish for? There's always a new dream to chase.

Much of the dialogue in The Drifter is taken from Rob's own personal journals. According to respected surf journalist Nathan Myers, who co-wrote the movie, there is nothing embellished in Rob's candid, heart-felt passages. It is these passages, in fact, that drive the movie, from Rob's epiphany in Bali, to his ill-fated motorcycle purchase, to his decision to delay his return to California, blindly pick a new island on the map, and just go.

Alex Knost at Lowers


Alex Knost from Gage Hingeley on Vimeo.
Was up at Lowers and happen to see Alex surfing and I figured I would shoot a few clips of him surfing. I ended up making an edit out of it and hear it is. I wanted to do something really weird so I added some 16mm painted film effect to the whole thing. Some will like it but some will not like it at all. I hope you are the one who will enjoy it!

The Chip by Josh Oldenburg









Josh - "At the beginning of summer I had the pleasure of creating a modern Chip. The Chip originated in the late 50's and is often time considered the precursor to many of the early pig designs that largely dominated the first half of the 1960's. This particular board has a flat rocker that is complimented by a soft rolled bottom, a combination that makes for an extremely fast board in trim."

Desillusion Magazine | Benjamin Jean Jean



Desillusion Magazine X Benjamin Jean Jean from Desillusion Magazine on Vimeo.
Desillusion magazine teamed up with Benjamin JeanJean, a French artist who's into just about everything ( Photography - Drawing - Design ) and who is surrounded by an extremely dreamlike and mystical world. This association gave way to the creation of a highly atypical surfboard.

Inspired by the mag's motto "Death of cool', Benjamin Jean Jean created more than fifty illustrations, each one unique, and then shaped the whole thing himself, which in turn is more than just a board, it’s plain art. The board was shown at an exhibition, last month in Biarritz, France.

FIN SOUP

       

FIN SOUP from Deus Customs on Vimeo.
Fin Soup was a cook off which called for two cups of both fined and un-finned ingredients, a cut of surf-swap, a dash of live music and one dozen shapers. Hailing from the corners of San Diego, Costa Mesa, Los Angeles, and as far as Japan, the most renowned chefs came by to demonstrate and show us what they have been cooking up and takin out...

*Note: Fin Soup is best enjoyed chilled with one fin.

A special thanks goes out to all who participated, including: Seea, Yellow Rat, Alva Surfcraft, Kookbox, Mason Dyer Brand, The Piapo Society, 4th Gear Flyers, Wegener, Schuyler Creative, Josh Hall Surfboards, Brink Surfboards, Bing Surfboards, The Longboard Collectors Club, and Sherman for fixin' our boards!

Amazing Shot

When I visited the blog Howard-Windaddiction, I came across with this amazing photo.
Here is his the story published by Howard himself!



Howard-Windaddiction - Dropped down to Bude over the weekend and caught up with an old aquaintance, Roger Tout at his store in town. This picture has been hanging over his till for a couple of years now, and I meant to ask last time who took the photo. For those who don't know its a very famous spot nearby, and I just love the slab behind almost as much as the extremity of the surfer in amongst the storm. Clive Symm is a locally based photographer, who has one hell stretch of coastline for inspiration.
