Those I have loved

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Those I have loved you, men and women, the salt and kelp tides tasted, if I set about illuminating your treasures, I would soon find myself bankrupt. Giving up such things is an act of treason, in memory, in recollection, in heart you labyrinth of lovers, those swept in the wake of such a hurricane. […]

Act Imperfectly! Broadly!

Written by , Posted in Surfing, Writing

Seasons drift, one into the other, as if there are actually, really, seriously no seasonal changes here in Southern California. During this cross-over of ’13 to ’14 this holds more true than any seasonal (non)shift that I can recall. Weeks of solid 70+ degree heat beckons pores that gladly give up their saline treasures. The […]

The Privilege of Following Your Dreams

Written by , Posted in Deconstructing Surfing, History, Media Literacy, Politics, Surfing, Writing

Jill Manos

I have found that in (nearly) every conversations about and within surfing, the hierarchy of power and privilege is the single most often overlooked underlying assumption to each of these conversations.

That is, Lloyd has all the information about the […]

Beyond the opinions of whether sex sells or not, and all the attendant questions often overlooked in this simple cliché (e.g. What does sex sell, exactly? Does sex effectively sell every product/service? How does this marketing strategy impact society? Are men and women equally drawn to the sexualization of human bodies? Are men and women […]

Emboldening the Renaissance of Surfing

Written by , Posted in Deconstructing Surfing, Surfing

Wave (Buried), James Jean

Decentralizing the male competitive/professional surfer as the measure by which good surfing is gauged may be the most important shift in surfing’s renaissance. I make no apologies if using the word “renaissance” comes off sounding grandiose.
