La libertad no es sino una oportunidad para ser mejor
---------------------------- -------------------------------------
Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better
Albert Camus

El surf es libertad, sin más.
Subirse a la tabla es desaparecer, desconectar de las prisas y los dolores de cabeza del mundo.
El surf es esa fuente inagotable de energía que nos llena de ilusión por sentir, por compartir.
Somo libres cuando nos deslizamos sobre las aguas, cuando compartirmos una ola, o la perdemos, o la clavamos, nos convertimos en el momento y eso genera felicidad.
Compartir esa libertad, ese poder con aquellos que nos rodean, otorga al simple acto de surfear un mayor sentido.
Eso es lo que significa ser libres, crecer, compartir, reir, concentrarse, respirar, ser.
El surf es libertad, y así será siempre.

SIEMPRE LIBRES (ALWAYS FREE) Surfing is freedom. Getting on your surfboard means disappearing, disconnecting from the stress and the pains of the world.
Surfing is that neverending source of energy that fills us with the joy to feel, to share.
We are free when gliding on the water, whether we share a wave, we loose a wave, we nail a wave, we become the moment, and that, generates joy.
Sharing that freedom, that power with those around us, makes the simple act of waveriding more meaningful.
That is what it means to be free, to grow, to share, to laugh, to focus, to breathe, to be.
Surfing is freedom, and it will always be.

Music: Shabop Shalom by Devendra Barnhard.

I was lucky enough to score this beautiful Andrini Vaquero a few months back. This board was made for Kirk Putnam to emulate boards that were ridden in a certain segment of ''Innermost limits of pure fun". Its a blast to ride such a long hull. It taught me a lot about trim and positioning. Thank you Marc for telling me the history and theory behind this particular board. Great design. camera-Justin Bowers music-Beachwood sparks

Not having any left points really in californa i never had a need for a Liddle so i was excited to get one. I rode it a ton at saladita and learned the rewards and challenges of surfing hulls. Good times......... camera-Justin Bowers Music-Mt.Egypt

Neal Purchase Jr. | Local Legendz

Neal Purchase Jr. - Local Legendz from on Vimeo.
Going against the grain doesn't always pan out for everyone. But for Neal Purchase Jr., he has found a way to maintain a free lifestyle while still having his hands in a number of creative ventures.

In this episode of Local Legendz in collaboration with Leatherman, Neal reflects back watching his father shape growing up and to the 1977 Stubbies where his inspiration from Michael Peterson fueled his desire to create boards that expand a surfer's approach, allowing that rider to ride different parts of the wave.

Is there someone of ‘legend’ status in your hood? We’d love to know! Submit their photo and a description to or #local_legendz on Instagram and Twitter.

Local Legendz is an exploration between Korduroy and Leatherman Sport into communities around the world through the guidance of deeply connected individuals who are quietly changing the world from their backyards through hard-work, innovation, craftsmanship and creativity. Through their commitment to this community, this person has gained breadth of wisdom and knowledge which they use in guiding us to a better understanding of place and self, much like the legend on a map.

The Boardroom Icons of Foam, Del Mar 2014 | Matt Calvani

The Boardroom Icons of Foam, Del Mar 2014 - Matt Calvani from Bing Surfboards on Vimeo.
The Boardroom Icons of Foam competition was held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds the weekend of May 17th & 18th of 2014. Bing Surfboards own Matt Calvani was the defending champ from 2013 and was one of six shapers invited to this particular competition.

The board they'd have to shape was Ben Aipa's "Sting" surfboard. An iconic board made famous by riders such as Buttons Kaluhiokalani. Ben Aipa dedicated the competition in memory of Buttons who unfortunately passed away Nov. 2, 2013.

The competition was tight between Matt Calvani and Roger Hinds. Roger Hinds eventually got the nod by Ben Aipa after a long deliberation over the two boards. Big congratulations to Roger and all the competitors. Thank you Boardroom for putting on a great weekend centered around the surfboard builders who create the crafts we love to ride.

Josh made a 11' eagle for my recent trip to Mexico. I had never rode one before but had heard nothing but good things about this design. I ended up loving the board and rode it every day of our trip. I have never had a board teach me so much about my surfing. I will always have one in my quiver. Thanks Josh, -cj

Canggu Surf Community Inaugural Longboard Event 2014

Canggu Surf Community Inaugural Longboard Event 2014 from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.
They came one and all, local and expat, old and young, from fifty to twelve.
All with one thing they shared, a common thread if you like.
They all were there to compete in the inaugural Canggu Surf Community’s Longboard event.
A fabulous day in the sun spent with likeminded kinfolk from Bali and around the world.
It was a mixture of talent and tactics, mischief and antics.
Smiles spread through the gaggle that gathered to gander on the grassy knoll above Tugu.
Don’t take our word for it, as the Deus Media team were on hand and Andre Cricket shot the proverbial out of it. He’s come back to us today with this, his little visual gift.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we did, now and on the day.

Surf Photographer | Clark Little

The Inertia: Surfing's Definitive Community //

Getting tossed around by shorebreak and slammed into the sand day after day is a rough go; Clark Little wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, for the North Shore local, it's all in a good day's work. But the Waimea addict didn't grow up snapping shots with his father's camera like so many photographers do. He instead set out to capture his longtime stomping grounds when his wife came home with a framed photograph of Waimea shorebreak, an image he figured he would be able to easily replicate. Having never owned a camera, he threw a cheap "waterproof" casing over a cheaper point-and-shoot and headed out to the beach. Since that first attempt, Clark has not only emulated his wife's purchased wall art, but — with a gallery in Haleiwa and international recognition — has become a heavily respected fixture of wave photography.

Special thanks to Tom Servais and Clark Little archives for the gorgeous imagery, and check out Clark's new, 160-page coffee table book, Shorebreak, to see more of his work.

I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night - Trailer from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.
'I HAD TO MUCH TOO DREAM LAST NIGHT' follows the simplistic travels of two surfers, meeting friends along the way, on an open ended journey across an archipelago littered with islands and breaks. Connected by ribbons of tarmac and separated by deep ocean valleys these islands have been here for millennia and will continue to do so for millennia to come. An veritable eden for waves of every nature, from long reeling glassy points breaks to sketchy urchin infested waves in the middle of nowhere

The Legend Series | Reynolds "Renny" Yater

The Legend Series: Reynolds 'Renny' Yater from SeaVees on Vimeo.
Check out our partnership with legendary surfboard shaper, Reynolds 'Renny' Yater:

To kick off The Legend Series celebration, SeaVees partnered with renowned surfboard shaper, Reynolds “Renny” Yater. In the summer of 1964, the same year SeaVees was originally founded, Yater honed his talent to carve out the original Yater Spoon. The Spoon was the thinnest, lightest and most maneuverable longboard of its time. The shape remains the board of choice among many long-boarders today, solidifying Yater’s status as a surf icon.

To honor the dual 50th anniversaries and Colon Cancer Awareness Month, Yater shaped a custom Spoon for SeaVees that will be available on auction from March 16th to 26th. All proceeds from the auction, as well as 10% from all sales of the 08/63 Hermosa Plimsoll Standards (, will be donated to Colon Cancer research at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara.

Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, but as many as 80% of these deaths could be prevented through regular screening in those age 50 or older. To help raise awareness about colon cancer and screening for the disease, the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara with Sansum Clinic has worked since 2000 to raise widespread awareness of colon cancer prevention and the importance of early detection.
