Every art exhibit needs an opening party… and this is Joe’s. When the curtains were drawn from the Temple of Enthusiam’s gallery, crowds flocked in to admire his inspiring show. No one had ever seen anything quite like it. Throughout the night the bloke from Brixton did his best to avoid the spotlight, but there was no denying that he was smack bang in the middle of it. We here at the Temple feel incredibly lucky to have gotten to know Joe during his month spent here as resident artist, and we look forward to his return, whenever that may be.

The Loaded Bhangra Longboard

Today I’m going to feature a guest post from the authors of the popular longboard blog, Review Longboards, who are writing about the Loaded Bhangra longboard.

The Loaded Bhangra longboard is the successor to the Loaded Dancer, a very popular board that certainly lives up to its name with its wild success at “dancing” down a hill. Loaded took a slightly different direction with this board aiming for excellence in all areas of longboarding rather than just focusing on one aspect.

First the board itself. The total length of the board is 48.5’’ which sounds ridiculous but it actually suits this board very well. When you also take into account, that this is actually shorter than the Loaded Dancer, the length seems more reasonable. This length though, combined with a weight of 10 lbs with all the components, means that this board is not the best for rides where you’ll have to carry your board a lot. Another aspect that this board does excel in though is included components. When buying it complete from Amazon or from Loaded, the board comes with very good Paris trucks and Orangatang wheels.

Now how does it feel when you ride it? Amazing. The board is slightly concave and covered in grip tape which ensures that when riding, you won’t slip. I have heard some complaints about the slickness of the grip tape but by and large the grip tape is effective for its intended use. Compared to regular Loaded boards, the board has less flex but it definitely makes up for it in agility and turns. It has an amazing turning radius for its long length and can easily make a 90 degree sidewalk turn at moderate speeds. In fact, that might be one of the most amazing things about this board: it rides with a smaller board’s agility combined with the speed and stability of a longer board. Ultimately, it is one of the best all around boards I’ve seen and is especially great for carving, tricks, and freeskating.

THE 9 FOOT & SINGLE 2014 from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.
It was only a few years ago that everyone told us the Canggu river mouth was strictly a shortboard wave. They said it was too fast and too powerful for heavy longboards… haven’t we proved them wrong? Over the past three years the 9 Foot & Single has seen logging at its absolute best. It helps that we’ve had some the best in the world do the waves justice (think Knost, Chojnaki, Roach and more), but seeing the heavy logs lumber along in those kinds of conditions has been somewhat ground breaking. It has changed the way we think about longboarding; it has changed our perceptions about where and when a longboard should be ridden. On any given day, we recognize that the Canggu river mouth is a shortboard spot, but during the weekend of the event, when the water is cleared, our competitors 60’s inspired single fins have their time to shine. And shine they do!

The technique becomes more and more obvious as the years go by… it’s becoming an art form: take-off, noseride, tube, cutback, another noseride, end it off the lip… Each year the level of surfing jumps leaps and bounds. It’s ‘sky’s the limit’ surfing and it’s damn exciting for the spectators. Imagine watching dudes noseride their 9 footers at that speed! This year saw Devon Howard (one of California’s greats) take down guys half his age for the winner’s trophy. You know what he scored? A custom Thomas X Deus 9’6. But honestly, every surfer who competed in the 9 Foot & Single was a winner. The waves were pumping, the beer was pouring and the vibes were... pleasant? Please excuse me, but it’s hard to find a word that starts with P that will do the 9 Foot & Single justice. You’ll just have to come along and see for yourself next year. I can tell you now it’ll be a whole lot more than pleasant.

David Platt Surfboard Restorations

David Platt - "I have a small ding repair and restoration business based on the NSW Central Coast 100km Nth of Sydney, Australia. This site has been set up to highlight the restoration side of the business. Restorations take time. There is plenty going on behind the scenes. 
So have a look at a new blog in my links. "dpsr behind the scenes."

UNDER 9 FOOT & SINGLE 2014 from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.
This was a year of firsts for the Deus 9 Foot & Single festival. Not only were a flock of female cross-steppers dominating the Canggu river mouth, we also held our first annual Under 9 Foot & Single division. We decided to run the spur of the moment shortboard division because we’d (somehow) found ourselves with a bit of extra time. Needless to say, it was a hoot! And surfers who were at the beach early on the finals day (most with sever hangovers from the night of partying at the Temple) surfed four man heats, with the river mouth to themselves. As to be expected, the format was relaxed and competitors weren’t all that competitive, but the waves were fun and the skill level was high. The Under 9 Foot and Single division will become a staple in our festival for years to come and we can’t wait to see who turns up next year, when it’s not so spontaneous.

Nathan Strom | Surfer Magazine

Most 16-year-old surfers aren’t capable of threading heavy tubes on a 5'2" one day, then riding the nose on a 9'6" log the next, but Nathan Strom is a little ahead of the curve. That’s because Strom has spent the past few years getting the CliffsNotes from longboard icon and fellow San Diegan Joel Tudor. Under the tutelage of Tudor, Strom has dedicated himself to mastering a wide variety of craft, from single-fin longboards to twin-keel fish to high-performance thrusters. With a knack for adapting to various boards and conditions, Strom is quickly becoming one of California’s most versatile surfers.

The Life & Times of Brian Bent

If you’ve ever been to tourmaline beach in san diego, or, as the locals call it, “old mans”, there’s a chance you’ve seen a guy on a huge longboard called a “Kook Box” surfing in a sweater and a sailor hat. That’s Brian Bent, a local surfer with a unique style. But there’s more to Brian than just a throwback style and big smile.
Brian is a painter, a musician, a surfer, a skater, and a hot rod enthusiast. And as you’ll see in this Biopic, he’s pretty badass at all of them!

A Shared Moment with Israel Preciado

A Shared Moment with Israel Preciado from Quality Peoples on Vimeo.
This documentary film is the first in a series of Quality Peoples short films that take a brief glimpse into the lives of our collaborators and inspirations. Israel Preciado is a longboarder cat from Mexico and the unofficial Mayor of Sayulita. You might know Izzy as the face of QP, he’s the stoic guy in all the photos. Antithetical to the image we’ve created of him, Izzy is actually one of the kindest, funniest, unassuming guys you’ll meet in the lineup. Izzy’s quiver runs deep and in this short film we spend a few shared moments with him as he talks about his childhood, his favorite spots, slowing things down, the art of small wave riding, traveling, learning to surf and the act of surfing as both sport and meditation. With a special appearance by Lola Mignot.
This short documentary was filmed, directed and edited by the folks at Quality Peoples. We hope you enjoy.

Slaves of Summer | RVCA

The Slaves of Summer camping surf trip through France, Spain & Portugal with RVCA Europe Advocates Robin Falxa (France), Jack Whitefield (UK), Adrian Siebert (Germany), Matteo Fabbri (Italy) & Benjamin Jean Jean (France).

We all know Europe isn’t known for its waves during summer, but it is known to deliver a good time. So we decided on shoving 4 nationalities into a couple of rental vehicles with a bunch of camping gear, too many surfboards and hit the road for a cliché euro trip.

We got lost, went skating, partied too much, met girls, camped on the side of the road, surfed shitty waves and crashed our rental car. But we had fun, even though we couldn’t understand each other.
