THE PUMPHOUSE, Windansea La Jolla, CA 8/2011

I spent a lot of my formative years here. A lot of creativity and talent was fostered, and even more lost, here, in the shadows of the subject of Tom Wolf’s 1968 The Pump House Gang.

Check out Twist’s take from last year.

Agenda X US Open + N.S/N.S!!!

US Open party Agenda X US Open + N.S/N.S!!!
We’re bring that No Shirt / No Shoes troppo beach flare down to Huntington next week for the ultimate beach blanket binder. Your favorite No Shirt team is combining forces with Billabong, da crew from AFENDS and the original dj shred duo BAREBACK DJs for the ultimate US Open and Agenda afterparty.

We’ll be previewing a few of our new FW hats and BLOW UP will be showing all night –

RSVP here and come enjoy some fun in the sun and beautiful company.

ALSO!! We’ll be posted up at the Afends booth at Agenda, showing our colab hat and maybe a peak at the next collection.

AFENDing the USA

AFENDS our good friends from down under are preparing to come stateside. They will be introducing their unique take on a dark tropical lifestyle collection. Started by surfers, skaters and musicians from an amazing town in the eastern most tip of Australia, known as Byron Bay, the lads are ready to tackle the American market. Check out their US premier at the Agenda HB Show.

Afends 2011 “Baywatch” boardies – so epic!

The video above is a pretty rad take on their new collection. Shot by their Marketing guy NEVASLOTHIN, it really makes me want to get back to Byron and live the dream – crystal blue waves surrounded by a tropical beach party. This is their story:

Our friend Steve has been living in Dubai for the last three years. Unlike most foreigners over there he’s been venturing outside the Dubai bubble and going on surf explorations in friendly places like Oman and Syria.

When Steve needed a hat we knew the Tubula Rasa Chambray snapback would be the perfect choice for staying shaded in the desert heat. He doesn’t care much for Iraq.

El Scorpio

Spent a week or so surfing in the desert and clearing my mind. In between the overhyped back-to-back-to-back swells and a few all time sessions we did a lot of logging and beach drinking, party waves and poses.

Down with the Ship Premier

Our buddy, Derek Dunfee, is premiering his movie this Thursday. Definitely worth checking out. We’ll be jammin’ some tunes (Party Sauce & Scorpion Breath) afterwards at Zenbu Lounge for the afterparty.

summer on my mind

After an epic weekend involving a few mini roadies out of LA – north to Edward Sharpe/Chromeo in SB on Saturday and a HB surf mission on Sunday, this video seemed pretty appropriate.
