Jamie Brisick & Surfline’s Techno Narcissism

by The Editors on August 29, 2019

Everyone’s favorite surf writer Jamie Brisick is back in the pages of The New Yorker with a story titled Surfing In The Age of the Omnipresent Camera.  It’s about Surfline’s new Sessions app that allows anyone with an Apple Watch to capture a video record of all the waves they surf in front of a Surfline camera. Of course, Brisick uses this piece as an opportunity to give newbs an overview of the last 50 years of professional surfing, his career as a pro surfer, and the history of Surfline itself.

For so many of us surfers, the ocean is where we go to work things out, to heal, to escape. And for it to become all about the photo op cheapens the experience. And, even if the documenting or the posting is not your thing, you’ll inevitably be surrounded by surfers for whom it is. Emerging from the water with these thoughts, I did not have to wait long before the contradictions of modern surfing returned. Up on the roof deck, we went straight for our phones. Gilovich smiled broadly. “Soon we’ll be able to alert you when the conditions are to your exact liking, based on what you’ve rated with five stars,” he said. He went on about algorithms, and a bunch of other tech stuff, but none of us were listening. We were checking out our waves.

It reminded us of that scene in Dave Egger’s book The Circle when the founder of the company rolls out the ubiquitous “seaChange” mini cameras that will allow crowd sourced surveillance on a global level. Secrets are lies. Sharing is caring. Surfing the apocalypse, indeed.

Walker Ryan Because . . .

by The Editors on August 21, 2019

“There is no way you just stumble on to a skater like Walker Ryan,” someone once told us. Well, yes and no. Met him at the St. Helena skatepark way back, appreciated his style and demeanor (plus that scene in Little Children), and now just look at him rollin’ the streets of LA for Thrasher. My, my.

Kelly Slater (and Hamster) On Natural High

by The Editors on May 30, 2019

Kelly Slater talks about how nothing good comes from using drugs and alcohol. Oddly, the hamster perched lightly on his right shoulder doesn’t say a whole lot. It, like us, must be in total agreement with everything Mr. Slater says.

Kanoa Gets His Own G-Shock

by The Editors on May 22, 2019

A solid, affordable, good looking tide watch is hard to come by in these time of massively clunky GPS fitness watches, but Casio has one and it’s a G-ShockKanoa Igarashi’s G-Shock in fact.

The new watch is based on the G-LIDE GLX5600 which features a tide graph, an indispensable tool for surfers. The thin, square shape of the watch ensures that it does not obstruct the wrist while surfing. The GLX5600KI-7 features a semi-transparent body that evokes the ocean and is paired with a mirror finish face that gives the watch a simple, cool look. Igarashi’s “Kanoa” signature is inscribed on the upper center of the watch face and on the strap keeper and case back, as well as in illumination when the backlight is turned on.

The G-Lide also features 29 times zone, stop watch, countdown timer, two alarms, and is water resistant to 200 meters. It’s going to cost $130 and will be available in July at select jewelers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store and at gshock.com. For all the details, please follow the jump.

Superhero Wields Wind Powers At Skatepark

by The Editors on April 11, 2019

The above footage from the security camera at the Suisun Rotary skatepark in Fairfield, California purports to show a common dust devil, but who are they kidding. This is rare footage of a superhero wielding his wind powers to destroy. As skaters roll away, notice how he puts his arms out, and begins to spin pulling in a raging tornado of power strong enough to rip the roof off the restroom? When he walks away the wind stops. Hopefully, he can get these powers under control and use them for good in the future. . . and maybe work his magic somewhere else.
