Christmas in Odesa


At the beginning of every year that momentum we get is driving by a propitious nature that flows through us and revitalizes are passion to seek out the journey that lies ahead of us.  Which is why it is in perfect form to celebrate unsung dedicated ones surfing the finest breaks however big or small because even in the remote and most unlikely parts of the world you can still find destinations like this one in Arcadia Beach, Odesa, Ukraine.  The official day for Ukrainian Christmas was yesterday, where some celebrate for the whole week and in keeping with my roots  I’ll shall do the same because Ukrainians know how to party.


Propitious – the very welcoming favorable choice thats full of promise to become awesome



Let the Summer Begin


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.


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

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.

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.


Ten Cool Surfing Towns

The culture of surfing has brought a community of life enthusiasts the worlds biggest waves, inspirational journeys, breathtaking scenery and lots of awesomeness from those who ride the waves.  I have put together 10 great surf spots from around the world that everyone should put on there bucket list. Surf towns were you can immense yourself in the culture, learn of the deep history and have incredible fun and an amazing experience.

Tofino, British Colombia

surf-tofino-british-columbia_55608_600x450Got to give it up to my hometown. The huge tides flatten out the beaches and create very mellow beginner waves. An old fur trading town sitting on the prettiest spot on Vancouver Island has fresh culture with great markets and festivals

Taghazout, Morocco

images-1This ancient Berber encampment became an outpost for European adventurers trekking into southern Morocco in the 1960’s. The waves are almost long period ground swells and the winds consistently blow offshore means great shape and plenty of power

Bundoran, Ireland

Top surfer finds 'biggest swell'This centuries old fishing village catches just about any swell that steamrolls through the North Atlantic. Known as Europe’s cold water Indonesia the Emerald Isle most famous reef break the Bridge is a unique mix of old school Ireland and surf culture.

Byron Bay

01719509.000000Near the remnants of prehistoric rain forest of the Gondwana forests in Queensland, Byron Bay stands out as one of the spiritual and historical homes of surfing that favours live bands and relaxed cafes. A place for great waves and a pleasant atmosphere.

Biarritz, France

Roxy Pro FranceConsidered the birthplace of European surfing Biarritz is a nice combination of French high culture and SoCal surf culture. If you need to get away from the high end vibe check out surrounding villages such as Ahetze and Espelette for a taste of small town Basque.

Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina

imagesA small town tucked away between the salt marshes, sandy barrier islands and old wooden piers of the American southeast. The southeast is hotbed of stand up paddleboarding and Wrightsville has one of the most popular loops in the region

Santa Cruz, California

Taking the Kids for a Weekend in Santa CruzTucked between sea cliffs and redwood forests this NorCal gem boasts a fantastic surfing museum and classic surf spots like Pleasure Point. Steamer Lane was proving ground for aspiring West Coast big wave riders in the 1950’s who rode giant winter swells on wooden longboards

Nosara, Costa Rica

071114nosara_insiderWarm water, friendly locals, endless beaches, powerful river mouths, long point breaks, and high swells make it a veritable surfing Disneyland. To get some volcanic reef action head north to Playa Pelada or experience the awesome power of the heavy tubes of Bocas del Nosara

Paia, North Shore Maui

The Hana highway surf shop located in the small town of Paia, a popular stop for many surfers and water sports enthusiasts.Starting out as a sugarcane boomtown now has a artsy, eccentric vibe perfect hangout for artists, surfers and wind sport enthusiasts. Not as well know as Oahu’s North Shore, daily side shore winds that shred the lineups most afternoons means that there are a lot of waves for everyone.

Raglan, New Zealand

IMG_9739The town is a throwback to the the golden days of surfing. Whaingaroa as it’s known in the local Maori language, introduced itself to the world when the  seemingly endless left hand point breaks were featured in Bruce Brown’s film The Endless Summer.

Bukit Peninsula, Bali

surf-bukit-peninsula-bali_55594_600x450The peninsula is a rural outpost of limestone cliffs, pristine beaches, fearsome reef breaks, and hilltop temples where Indonesian culture still dominates. For the more experienced surfer visit two of the most famous waves in the world at Padang Padang and Uluwatu.

Stoked for the launch of the One Tribe 2010 online shop


      For awhile now we’ve been setting up an online retail store and are stoked to announce we have officially launched. One Tribe 2010 Clothing. A mix of clothing and apparel in the world of surf,skate and snow. Started out simple with a hobby of making t shirts to friends and family around the northern west coast on a old school heat press. Sold our first tee during the pre winter olympics of 2010. Hence the name One Tribe 2010. Living on an island and a ferry roll away from the rocky mountains set the vibe and found us fitting with some great communities. We look on bringing it back to the basics. When being awesome rad and gnarly spoke so loud. Designs reflect the vert evolution of skateboarding. Hitting the back countries of the Canadian rockies and the sick breaks of the North Shore pipeline.

Along with some cool companies we’re offering some wicked, original, quality products. Sweet sunnies from Nectar Sunglasses out in Florida. Beanies, tuques and hats from Discrete Headwear in Utah, and the awesome longboards from Jaseboards on the north shore of Oahu. We love the part of getting out there and being badass. But also being true to the culture and history that celebrates the innovative progression of the sport. Recognizing that we have a part to keep the environment beautiful to enjoy for generations to come. A great reason why we hoooked up with One Percent For The Planet. Contributing one percent of our sales to assist in their righteous eco driven programs throughout the globe. Further driving our inspiration to set forth our own ecological efforts in house with the Envy Green program. Basically we would like everyone to be envious of this awesome planet we call home and want to do their part in preserving it.

With the awesome crews were associated with, and all the brother and sisters who hoist up their middle finger, live life to the fullest and by their own rules, we are stoked for the global journey to come and hope you will have some kick ass fun with us. After all we are all One Tribe and “life is what you make it”.
