San Diego definitely knows how to have a good time, and the first Rip My Shred Stick stop of 2013 was proof of that! Almost a hundred kids came down to Mission Beach and Sun Diego Boardshop and set a great standard for the rest of the tour. Click 'Full Story' for details.
Through The Lens is the latest film project from Rob Machado. It's life - as only Rob sees it. This first installment features SF-based artist Jay Nelson, who specializes in high-qulaity and high-functioning tree houses and camper shells (check out some of his work, it's incredible). Jay and Rob talk DIY, connecting to art, beauty in the imperfections; they give Rob's van a killer facelift - and of course, go catch a few out front at Cardiff Reef. Stay tuned for more Through The Lens episodes coming this summer.
The 6th Annual Pacific Wave “Spring Fling” presented by Hurley (hey, that's us!) went down this past Saturday at Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz, CA. The morning started off a little gloomy with a low tide, but mid morning gave way to sunshine and clean conditions with waves in the 2-4 ft range. Good times in one of our favorite surf towns!

Alejo Muniz and Filipe Toledo doing their thing (surfing really well) all over Australia. Press play, get happy, go surf. Life is simple sometimes.
The international premiere of Lakey Peterson's movie, Zero to 100, went down in Huntington Beach over the weekend. Lakey signed autographs and interviewed with TV stations, a handful of kids turned the Hindu Pirates outdoor concert into what looked like Coachella Junior (just check out the pictures), and hometown hero Brett Simpson showed up to support his up-and-coming teammate. The movie was amazing (no surprises there), and to top it all off, after the screening Lakey and director Aaron Lieber were both honored by the California State Assembly with a certificate of recognition. In sum, a good time was had by all and we're super proud of Lakey. Click 'Full Story' to see more. Photos: D. Bahn.

Twenty four years young and hailing from the sunny coast of northeast Australia, Julian Wilson is a true athlete. Growing up with two older brothers, Bart and Seb, Julian stayed busy both in and out of the water. Skateboarding played a large role in Julian's aerialist approach to surfing, but his overall love for sports is what fuels his competitive nature. Whatever the game – golf, tennis, cricket – you can be sure that Julian will hold his own. Get to know Jules in his One & Only feature, where he breaks down what West Australia has to offer. See more of Julian here.
