Bringing Surf+Skate+Snow+Everthing Rad & Global Harmony Together

Let the Summer Begin

photo

The movement of the body, the animation of the moment. Tharshing forward with full force the board finds that sweet spot located in the core of your soul. It’s rad, it’s fun and in these next two days celebrate the beginning of summer. Whether your a skateboarder surfer or just young at heart, Go Skateboarding Day and International Surfing Day lets us be a little rowdy with an awesome community of life enthusiasts. From the Island I have always found peace  and excitement being around water. We are all a part of it, the fish that we eat drinks from the same water and nourishes us with hydration. We are not all the same, but we are the same water. Taking care of our water is important because it ameliorates our present day and connects us to form a beautiful future, so eventually all we leave on the beach is our foot steps. We are stoked to be part of Surfrider Foundation and 1% For The Planet not only for the outstanding work they do, but to remind us that the small everyday things we do to help Mother Nature accounts a great deal. Summer Solstice is a time of intensity, renewal and great potential. On the longest day of the year let the light of our consciousness shine bright in our awareness to be passionate and do dope things.

FUN WORD PLAY

Ameliorate: to make something better or become better as an awesome individual

Downhills and Longboarding

7DVHh

From the top of the slope. The radness you feel at 80 miles an hour riding a longboard down hill, 85 if you got crazy wind pushing forward those twisty corners. Met some boarders from the island today that were talking about hills with insane incline that I feel are treacherous to drive in the rain. Bendy and steep together downhill and longboarding is sick. Big ups to them and all the longboarders who cruise these speed with there epic style. BOOM!

Water Colors

Wordpress watercolorSplash blue all over the  back because a blue sky just feels great. Mix a combination of green, smooth it out and watch the water emanate and blend into jagged spearheads. Giving the dark fade of shadow to linger with mystery and  mischevious sin. They might have a little direction in the beginning but water colors are gonna do it their way. Their a badass part of illustration and design whether on canvas or through a reflection.

Fun Word

Emanate: to come forth and emerge into creation

Finding Snake Mouth

snakemouthAs I headed toward the lake, off the sunlight pass I came across this. This boss of a serpent ready to show you me the way. I call him Snake Mouth. Scouting around we have looked at many sweet sights to put the media together for the new summer collections, some of them didn’t match what we had in our head. Knowing when you have found the right spots for photo shoots though, is sometimes guided with illustrative enlightenment by simply being observant of how cool nature can be.

The Blossoming Of Spring

Covered Bridge in Spring

I love this time of year with the *inflorescence of spring bouncing off every cherry blossom and grassy hill flowing with a gentle wind off the coast. The sun radiants and you feel that jolt to mingle out a little longer and join in some activities and gatherings. That excitement of summer makes you think of the new things you want to do and enjoy some of the favorite classics. One of my new things I’m stoked to try is hand gliding. I wonder what other ideas out of the adventurous  we could attempt this summer. Got any your fired up about trying out this summer?

Fun Word: inflorescence

A state of flourishing and blossoming into your beautiful self

The Genius of Clark Griswold

mwl-christmasvacation-2

A Dynasty of films that set a blueprint to enjoy the blunders of vacationing with your family. Having been able to grow up along with the Griswold family as they explored the globe, I can say National Lampoons Christmas Vacation is in my top ten of all time favourite films. Everytime I watch I pick up small bits of laughter. The journey of their christmas tree from when they first scooped it out of the ground till it burst in flames from the cigar. The chase scene where the only animal that I didn’t see running through the house was a racoon. I can only wait until I get my hands on a set of holiday moose glasses for drinking egg nog. So get some popcorn and on The Second Show Of Christmas watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation because like the jelly of the month club this film is a gift that keeps on giving.

Gizmo Turns Badass After Midnight

Gremlin

Like the snowflakes that fall upon this Christmas season no two Gremlins are like. That sweetest Christmas movie comes from malfeasance little characters trying to reak havoc on a small little town. On The Third Show Of Christmas watch The Gremlins.

A Magnificent Story Enhanced By The Amazing Alastair Sims

2103_1

Charles Dickens created brilliance and imagination that inspired so many to bring his words to the screen. The 1951 film is a honourable adaption to Dickens’ story. As movies relate to the book detail may be lost and scenes might alter how the book describes it, but Alastair Sims as Ebenezer Scrooge illustrated something that Dickens only related about the character, without being able to show a scene that spelled it out.  Sims version comes to enhance the story with the harshness of his demenor, the stubborness of his ways and the conflict of his emotions as he faces the misery and happiness of his life and begins to understand. Beauty all around my favourite part is Christmas day as he dances, stands on his head and scares the bejesus out of Mrs. Dilber. On The Fourth Show Of Christmas celebrate the wonderful Christmas Carol with Alastair Sims.

The Winter Warlock Just Wants To Be Called Winter

maxresdefault

It’s always special when you discover how each character enriches the story, showing something significant about themselves and how they connect to the moments in the story were their actions  becomes the history.  In particular the classic Santa Claus is Coming To Town brings the history of how it all came to be delightfully to life. Kris always having to be one step ahead of that mean old mayor The Burgermeister, finding ways to sneak kids the toys (which later had him on the run like Harrison Ford in the fugitive). The beard and red coat, Meeting Miss Jessica, the future Mrs Claus and all the Winter Warlock wanted to be called when he was nice was Winter. On The Fifth Show of Christmas watch some playful animation with greats like Fred Astaire and Mickey Rooney in Santa Clause Is Coming To Town.

Bringing in Christmas Like A Badass, John McClane Style

945053-die-hard

This is it, if anyone is wondering, Die Hard is my favorite christmas show. Partly because so many tell me it’s not, I feel I have discovered a rare holiday gem.  Just listening to the musical score throughout the movie, there is so much christmas music beautifully orchestrated you would think you were in Carnegie Hall,New York until  you see John McClane tearing across the screen with a machine gun and realize your in sunny LA with that determined German bastard Hans Gruber trying to take over Nakatomi Plaza on Christmas Eve.  With so many actors who had passed on the main role, I couldn’t image anyone else but badass Bruce Willis playing the role. On The Sixth Show Of Christmas get some Wild Turkey bourbon and watch Die Hard. To all a yippy ki ya muthaf%#*ker and to all a good night
