Movements Of The Shadows


Felt that chill today and realized summer is over, and I’m okay with that. The sun falls to sleep earlier in October and the surroundings have a stirring mystery, something you really can’t have to much in summer. In my headphones, Tennessee by Arrested Development is playing as I walked back from my bros house near by. Rocking a dark hoodie, dark khakis and my backpack with red designs as the only deep color different from my whole attire gave me an undertone feeling like I was a movement of the shadows. Walked by a group and without seeing it happen, spooked all of them, because they couldn’t see my coming until I was right beside them. Thought “oh damn”, because they were wearing bright clothes and I didn’t even see them. But not a little further my ear is caught by a sound. Pay no attention to it until I hear again, faintly. It gets louder the rolling of the wheels of a skateboard and through the darkness I could hear them build up speed. Who is it? The rolling is all you hear, crunching small bits off the concrete, I’m scared and excited because the anticipation is killing me and I want to see if what I have in my head is who is coming. I can hear the feet hitting the ground for speed and the boarder doesn’t have to worry about how fast he is going because he knows the people on the other end can hear it. As he passed by sporting a pretty dope Discrete Cap I notice that was pretty much the only change to an all black attire he was rocking.  I learn tonight boarding down a strip in the pitch dark, that’s an awesome part of skateboarding because they truly can become movements of the shadows.

Downhills and Longboarding


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!

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 Holiday Spirit Of Our Modern Times


With the malls and all the stores bursting with decorations  for the christmas holidays I would still like to wish my American friends a Happy Thanksgiving. With that atmosphere of commercialization in mind, it is the disputation that surrounds the over produced holidays of our modern times.  I’m reminded of how Christmas was presented to me as a child with my parents, aunts and uncles. The traditional way of ending the year with the ones you love and a reason to possible connect with the ones you have been estranged with. Bringing the gift of togetherness and celebrating all you have experienced, good and bad throughout the year. It was a few years ago when I was having a conversation with someone that I caught myself saying “oh I love that, you should get me that for christmas”. Which is alright here and there, but a truly special gift is receiving something you need more than you want. Something different, something special just for you. It can come in any form, but it’s the thought and effort of someone finding a gift that you may enjoy on some level even if you never thought of it.  Maybe sometimes all you need is to know that someone out there cares enough about you to try and understand some characteristic that makes you your awesome self. Its a reason the clothes we make are hand crafted. Each person that comes through our store, to us, means that some element of our culture resonates with them, and finding ways to share a closer bond is the connection that illuminates my spirit.

With Cyber Monday coming up every company out there blast out crazy deals to encourage sales for the holidays and as a business, we are as well, but not for the same reasons. This blog isn’t a plug for sales, but hopefully an opportunity to grow our community. The voice of One Tribe is not spoken on the tongues of mainstream yet, which helps embody the uniqueness of its untapped freshness. Perhaps our message of keeping that fun, badass rebel inside of us alive, while building an ecological harmony with mother nature, is something that you, or a person your thinking of this holiday season would be stocked to be a part of. Also, it being a plus that you get half off on all the gear, because shopping in pjs while scoring wicked deals is fun for everyone. So in staying true to my roots I hope everyone in the WordPress community finds that beautiful Christmas spirit and enjoys the kick off to this holiday season.

Block Parties Rock

word press

That nice balance of experiencing the wonderment of your world and sharing it with all the awesome people around. Though it’s so easy to lose yourself in the life of others, spending time online, expanding your group of like minded people that enjoy the same things you do, and forgetting to give yourself the time to get out there and shred your own path. Thats the gift and curse of social media. Thats why I’m stoked about the Viddy Block Party kicking off next week. Viddy is a social media site that encourages you to showcase a little bit of your playful radness 30 secs at a time through videos.  Hosted online at the  One Tribe 2010 Facebook page, anyone part of the Viddy community can submit, suggest others, or have their’s chosen by One Tribe to get some awesome gifts along with the props they deserve.

A winner everyday,  this Block Party is the first of many. A celebration of all the dynamic talent and a humble appreciation to an amazing community who has welcomed with open arms, just like the creative full hearted authors I have been able to  meet on WordPress. The success of this collaboration has got me amped for when we roll out the Word Press Block Party.  Which well be a chance for all of to us to connect our lively spirited communities, while scoring some awesome gifts for just being are amazing selves. Cruise to the One Tribe 2010 Facebook link below If you play with the Viddy App or just to wanted to see quick clips of some originative coolness.

Eleven Years of Badass Performance

xgamesthe X games are here, closing with its final event in Los Angeles, which is also the final year it will be hosted in Southern California before setting down on Austin Texas. LA has been the spot where feats are achieved. The elusive 4 who have competed in every X games since 1995. Pastrana being only one of the three athletes to score the trifecta, was the only one to do it in LA and Ryan Scheckler striking his phenomenon as the youngest gold medalist wining at 13 in the skate park event, did it here. The powerhouse talent that comes every year reaches new heights at the LA competition. Breaking barriers and breaking some bones along the way too, a lot of first have been accomplished here. This year Vickie Golden as the first girl ever getting rad on the Moto X Whip  with the boys and showing it with awesome style, coming up third with the bronze medal.  Elliot Sloan chasing a dream he has finally achieved in LA ,taking his first gold in the Big Air Event, right ahead of Bob Brunquist who with a broken nose was still trying to compete for the number one spot, but had to settle for bronze. The Big Air event is my favorite, seeing the unstoppable determination of these badass athletes who seek out the impossible and then push forward to land it perfectly. To feel like you could tail grab the moon before you descend back down to earth was an inspiration of the Big Air series, the new summer collection at One Tribe 2010. From its original 4 year stint, turned into eleven years of  mind blowing performance, creating milestones and heros. Before the weekends over lets give full props for the SoCal area for being the stomping grounds for a showcase of talent on an epic proportion.

Defined A Generation

TransWOLRDThe glory of an era and fundamental chapter in the evolution of surf has ended. Trans World Surf changed the game for the better, keeping it rad and gnarly . Thank you for bringing the culture of the sport to new badass heights and for all the love you gave Vancouver Island. With their final edition printed we wanted to share the final edit notel of the magazine because nobody says it better than Chris Cole. Peace


“Every month, I looked forward to sitting down at my computer and writing my Editors Note, but on this occasion it’s a heartbreaking endeavor as this will be the last one I’ll ever write for TransWorld SURF. After nearly 15 years of success, growth, and 150 or so great issues- business and bureaucracy have dealt a death blow to the worlds’s best surf magazine-this is the last issue of TransWorld SURF, ever. At least death came quick, this issue was 99 percent done when word came down from the top.

When the news of our demise broke online, the outpouring of love and support shown to the magazine and its staff was and continued to be incredible and I cannot begin to tell you all how much we appreciate it. When we started this magazine, we had a goal to make surfing fun again. We wanted to shake things up and progress the sport. We wanted to break barriers. We strove to introduce and celebrate new heroes and respected legends. We made it our goal to make fun of ourselves and everyone around us. We were excited at the prospect of pissing people off. Mostly, we wanted to change surfing-and we accomplished all of this and more.

Am I bragging? Fuck yeah, I’m bragging. In our relatively short existence in the surf media landscape, we changed the game completely-becoming the leader in photography, Design, forward thinking editorial, and yeah, dick jokes and plenty of cussing. We invented a whole new way to look at surfing. We even invented a whole new bro-nacular (*Broisms). Unfortunately for surf fans all over the world, our exit leaves a void on newstands and in mailboxes that will never be filled in the same way again.

TransWorld SURF defined a generation. The hardest part of closing our doors is leaving behind an entire group of young surfers who were literally raised reading TransWorld SURF. I could go on and on, but I won’t. All I can say is TransWorld SURF left the surfing world a better place than it was before we were in it and at the end of the day, That’s where our legacy will stand_TransWorld SURF changed surfing for the better. We are proud of the indelible mark we left on surfing. Thank you to all the readers, writers, surfers, photographers, designers, critics, haters, subscribers and all the people behind the scenes who made this magazine possible for the last 14 years.

And on behalf of the whole staff, past and present….your welcome”

The Craftsmanship Of Our Culture

pic5Handmade products are more than just a product. There is uniqueness in each one produced with the shire passion and creativity that makes it one of a kind. At One Tribe 2010 we always believed in the garment being tailored to the individual, made with considerably more attention to detail, originality, and care. Focused on the quality we found even as we grow the roots down way of making clothes still produces the higher yield and tends to last a bit longer. Designs are printed with eco solvent inks on recycled paper materials keeping are environmental effects of pollution lower than what mass production might accumulate on a larger scale. We are not using organic cotton clothing at 100 percent just yet but as we progress to our full potential we will continue to go out and go full tilt at everything we are passionate about. A way for everyone in the One Tribe community to be badass without being dumbass, and a reason why we have the honor of being members of One Percent for the Planet and The Surfrider Foundation. Which is awesome, because we vibe with their vision of restoring Mother Nature to her complete beauty and can correlate our efforts with like minded companies that work with them. Even though The online experience misses the ability of the human touch, the assurance that everything will be perfect, knowing how your clothing was made and where it came from adds value to not only the product but the overall purchase. Thats what brings the sense of pride in the creation process, willing to go the distance to see it perfect because whether we win or lose we won’t go against are own principals at One Tribe 2010. Check out the Endlesss Summer collection and the Big Air Series  (edition 1), just two of the many we will be dropping this summer.


Finding that sick skate spot


Steve Rodriguez once said, “In the shadow of the Brooklyn bridge lies a paradise for so many that the rest of the world is blind to”. Sick skate spots are discovered in their awesome rawness, hidden under bridges, off ramps and uncreative eyes, offering a state of badass terrain  like the greats of Brooklyn Banks. 3 blocks of perfect sequence benches pillars and stair rails. bklynbanks.1.21.10.-540x405The Embarcadero with the San Francisco EMB crew  who kept it real doing some sick craziness of the Little 3, grinding over traps that might catch your back wheel and get you pitched down the step.Dope spots like this have seen popularity rise to epic proportions gaining the legit respect of becoming some of the best skateparks. Many our a shadow of its original incarnation due to the landscape being sacrificed to the modernization of the cities it resides in. Burnside Skatepark is one of the exceptions, protected from the raining Portland weather a no-mans land with empty lots and easy access to the passing freight trains offered a clandestine gem. Located Underneath the Burnside Bridge on the east side of the Willamette River, everything is burly. Multiple hips, gaps, speed lines, bowls. Created by skateboarders without permission later sanctioned by the city gets revamped every year from the crazy Halloween night it was created. With the blood and sweat that skaters pump into these spots, these simple open areas transcend into their legendary statues. Locals with out of town visitors push the limits of technical street skating to new heights, become proving grounds, learning grounds, epitomizing the drive and creativity of the deep culture in skateboarding.  To check out more on this badass spot click below

Radness at its Very Soul

wes-frontside-ollie-horizontal-1-rawDont know how I came across this photographer but I’m glade I did. Brian Fick is a San Diego based photographer with a love for skateboarding, landscapes and people. Some of our great moments exist only for a second and Brian captures them with brilliance. The perseverance in learning your cameras flash and ambience exposures to the point where you catch radness at its very soul is how he converted his dream into living it with his skateboard heroes.
