Nyjah A Possible Superspreader Party Host?

by The Editors on February 20, 2021

Nyjah Huston has been charged with misdemeanor “creating a nuisance” by the Los Angeles Police Department for he and Fairfax home owner Edward Essa repeatedly hosting parties that were “possible super spreader events at the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic” according to a story in the LA Times.

Nyjah Huston, a four-time world skateboarding champion, and Edward Essa, the owner of a home in the Fairfax District where authorities say parties have been repeatedly shut down by police since last fall, are among those charged.

After the last party, the Mayor of LA reportedly requested that power be cut off to the house. How is Nyjah supposed to remain an LA party person without throwing parties?

Danny Fuller’s Liquid Horizon From Rizzoli

by The Editors on February 14, 2021

Dropped in on Danny Fuller once at Rocky Rights. First time on the North Shore. Been trying for a wave for an hour in perfectly warm, small surf. Finally got one. Popped up thinking “oh, this is deep.” Looked back to make sure and someone was already pulled in, grabbing rail, and blasting down the line. Got out of the way just in time. Apologized. He laughed, said “No worries,” and paddled back out to do it again. A friend said, “You know who that was, right? Danny Fuller.” Ah, of course. Liked him ever since.

The reason we bring this up is that Danny has a collection of photos coming out in a 208-page book from Rizzoli titled, Liquid Horizon: Meditations on the Surf and Sea.

Fuller’s nocturnal seascapes of the worlds most savage and beautiful waves, all captured exclusively by moonlight with slow exposures, share the soulful beauty of the ocean, in meditative, painterly studies of subtle changes of light and color. In the tradition of artists drawn to the sea for inspiration, Fuller expresses a surfer’s deep spiritual connection to the ocean and to the meaning of consequence in surfing. The sensual allure of blue mixed with the ominous presence of water, whose scale is epic, reminds us just how minuscule and insignificant we are relative to the powers of the sea.

The book, with a forward by Julian Schnabel and Gerry Lopez, drops February 16, 2021 and can be purchased for $55 from Rizzoli by clicking this link right here.

Upcycled Jones Snowboard Skateboards

by The Editors on February 11, 2021

Everyone needs a roll around skateboard and why not have one built out of rejected Jones Snowboards. Now, thanks to the French it is all possible.

Adrien Reguis and Vincent Gelin founded NoK, a company based in Grenoble, France that specializes in making skateboards out of factory rejects and warranty snowboards. Using a CNC cutting table, NoK chops cruiser skateboard decks out of the middle of a snowboard. The repurposed skate decks are then fitted with new grip tape, trucks and wheels to make a unique and high performance sidewalk surfer. It’s the ultimate upcycle for a snowboard that would have otherwise ended up in the dumpster!

For the rest of the NoK story, please click the link.

Friendly Canadian Police vs. Longboarder

by The Editors on February 9, 2021

Nice to see the macho police violence disease flows smoothly across the northern border. It’s almost as if violence is inherent in the system. All this after the longboard skateboarder was accused of “running a red light.” We particularly enjoyed the way the officer kept throwing the kid’s backpack onto the ground and into trunk hoping to teach even inanimate objects who’s the boss around Barrie, Ontario, Canada.

Authentic: Paul Van Doren’s Memoir

by The Editors on January 28, 2021

Vans cofounder Paul Van Doren, 90, has decided to tell his side of the Vans story in a new book titled Authentic: A Memoir. The book, which drops on April 27, 2021 tell the story of how he went from a 14-year-old school drop out to helping create the coolest shoe company in the world, according to a story on Forbes.

“When I was approached to write the book, I wondered how I could explain my life as a series of tidy lessons,” Van Doren tells Fortune. “Eventually I realized that what I would offer is less formula and more whatever the opposite of formula is—let’s call it fluidity. Because the truth is the boundaries between my personal and professional lives have always been blurred.”

Looking forward to slipping into this one for sure. For more info, or to purchase a copy, click the link
