Sea Of Seven + Xanadu Surf Designs

by The Editors on August 31, 2019

Encinitas, California based Sea of Seven has collaborated with Xanadu Surf Design to create their new Black & White Collection.

“I was very pleased with the work we created during our launch of the Black & White Collection. This time around, I wanted to do something very different. I chose this image as it’s one of the most powerful I’ve ever taken of Xanadu. I am very proud of it. It was my idea to split the image in half, one side showing the positive, the other showing negative and in doing so titling it Think Positive, explained Sea Of Seven founder Jack English.

The shirts are available now on the Sea of Seven website. Click here for more, or for the official word from Sea of Seven, please follow the jump.

Amir Zaki’s Skateparks As Art

by The Editors on August 21, 2019

Photographer Amir Zaki sees skateparks as the works of art they really are, albeit with no skateboarders.

“They are essentially large and elaborately designed empty vessels, as much as they are concrete models of naturally found elements of the landscape such as mountains, hills, waves, and rocks,” Zaki told Dezeen. . . “Although these refined spaces are born out of conceptions of the various curvilinear shapes found in nature, they are frozen and ‘permanently’ cemented, recalling some of the most extreme examples of Brutalist architecture.”

Check out all the dream lines in Zaki’s California Concrete series of images. Mind skating for hours.

Sun Bum’s Limited Edition Vinyl Figurines

by The Editors on March 4, 2019

Ten years ago, Sun Bum (the sunscreen company) released a vinyl toy version of their ape mascot Sonny. And now, to celebrate that moment they’re releasing a limited edition of five inch vinyl collectables featuring their surf athletes Julian Wilson, Filipe Toledo, Zak Noyle, Malia Manuel, Barron Mamiya, Bede Durbidge, Kyuss King, and Rasmus King.

We didn’t know this until we read the Hypebeast interview, but surf photog Zak Noyle is the one responsible for the figurine in the first place.  According to Hypebeast, the “vinyl toys will be available in surf shops as a limited-time only gift-with-purchase (GWP) for any Sun Bum purchase of $30 USD or more.” So snap ’em up if you need a couple for your desk at work.

Grant Ellis Waves Goodbye To Surfer Mag

Friday was my last day @surfer_magazine, the company was sold and my position was made redundant. I spent the last 15 and a half years as the photo editor of the magazine I dreamed of being apart of as a child. I opened my first issue in the mid 1980’s and got my first postage stamp picture published in around 1998, of @rosswilliamshawaii surfing #JBay. I remember my first full page shot of @tajamos and then my first cover of @taylor_knox and thinking it doesn’t get any better than this. Then came the position of photo editor, Wow, incredible. This job has been a dream. I have met and traveled to amazing destinations with some of my childhood heroes. One of the highlights was a trip with @markocchilupo #Andyirons @lukeegan and @daverasta. Every trip has been an adventure, having traveled all over the globe with amazing people. The job has not always been easy it came with challenges which I have learned from. I am really excited about my future I am still just as passionate about surfing as I ever have been. It is so exciting to watch and be part of these days. I plan to stay involved in the lifestyle I have been dedicated to since the age of 8 and look forward to spending even more time out there amongst the action and excitement that is surfing today. I wanted to send this to everyone that has been a friend, a mentor, a teacher and a critic over the years. Thank you all it has helped me guided me and made me wiser.
