Justin Morrison aka Scrappers is a man of many activities; drawing, painting, camping, surfing, moto riding and i am sure the list goes on. Born on Vancouver Island and now based in Portland, Scrappers is all about the adventure life and he wants to share and explore that with you, so much so he is looking to launch a free adventure/lifestyle mag called STAY WILD. To help get things off the ground he has started a Kickstarter page to raise money for the printing costs of the first issue. This looks like it is going to be a super rad publication, one I can fully support and if you feel the same head on over to the Kickstarter and throw down in the name of adventure…
One of our most anticipated seasonal lookbooks since the brand’s inception, andwander here shows off their s/s 2014 range. We love nature, we love outdoors gear, and we love the simple beauty of the pieces and presentation – always consistent, always innate.
The followup to part 1 (featured back here) doesn’t disappoint, more of that PNW scenery and some uncrowded and bustling breaks taken advantage of by Trevor Gordon.
Featured by The Selvedge Yard a couple days ago, the recent onslaught of late winter snow and generally awful weather here in the PNW has warranted a repost. Old American Iron, backroads bars and friends, everything about this say summer, which can’t come a moment too soon. Great work by Imogene and Willie putting this together.
‘Acid is a humble and exploratory publication with surfing as an entry point, made to make you marvel and want to get in the water. Issue 2 will treat you with an extensive look at Gotland, the Hawaii of the Baltic Sea; a trip underwater to discover artificial reefs; a tale of survival attempts in tropical and polar waters; an examination of the relationship between surfing and coastal developments and a balsa sculpture of a surfer in a fur coat. And some more’
Love the look of the mag, and always hyped to discover a new print publication! Available to your door via.
Oh hells yes, some cold water stoke via Vernacular Observatory, a New England based video house covering surf, skate, snow, etc. It’s been Juneuary here for the most part so we’ve got nothing to complain about, when you know dudes are trekking though the snow to get waves. Peep the VO About vid for half an idea of how they like to get rad.
This short doc features the works and ethos of Bixente, the owner of Bixente Moto, a full custom garage based Biarritz France. Everything is dialled in this shop, from vintage motos through bicycles and furniture… if you’re like us and prefer your goods to be old and weathered, this vid is a ruling way to start your Monday.
‘BARRACUDA SURFBOARDS has been a Vancouver Island mainstay for many years. From the inception of the business it has been in the hands of surfers who have loved what they do and love the sport of surfing. Never pushing too hard and never losing sight of what matters most – your surfboard.
Carl White started the small Vancouver Island Based business in 1999 and handed it down to Will Hazen who now runs the show with a very liberal hand, always asking for input from the community of committed surfers based here on the BC island. Other craftsman and dutiful employees call Barracuda home now, showing up for work before the sun has risen and after it has set, all in the name of getting their daily wave count in….shaping, glassing, sanding, fixing, restoring and having a sh@t load of fun all the time.
HtO adopted the philosophy of only carrying hand shaped boards long ago and because of this we have been carrying Barracuda Surfboards for a very long time. Our relationship with these guys is one we want every surfer to have, to know the guy, to share a beer and shake his hand….surfing has a soul and we want you to help keep it alive.’
