You WILL find these beauties too. Waves that is. Endless turquoise glass walls that unravel before you, peeling into eternity for just you, and your mates. That’s the dream really. Reviving the rucksack revolutionary days of Endless Summer or the wanderlust of 180 degrees South. PC | Tim Marshall via unsplash PC | Tim Marshall via unsplash The search of …

NEW ZEALAND WITCHCRAFT

Austin Charvet ABROAD Leave a Comment

There’s some sort of mysticism hidden in this place, a tropical exoticism mixed with a powerful Pacific Northwest vibe. The scenery will swallow you in a childhood fantasy wonderland, the kind where you’re frolicking with forest nymphs and hiding from giants. Eventually you’ll explore the wild bush to its end. At either end you will find two separate, spell-bounding powers. …

DrewFarwell HAWAII, WATCH Leave a Comment

Don’t get us wrong, in comparison to much of the world, Oahu is paradise. It’s our home and island playground, but sometimes even the temptations of Honolulu fall short in comparison to the raw nature of our outer islands.

The Saksas had to unfortunately jump ship early from their Hanalei holiday. That’s when Erik gave me the call and said they had a little bungalow just off of Pine Trees that was going to be empty for a few days…just sitting there.

Enter ZEAL OPTICS. We stumbled across ZEAL during a recent road trip to Fort Collins, Colorado where we found these stylish shades nestled amongst the trendy, boldly colorful, backpacks of the TOPO Designs shop in town. For me, ZEAL was a new company and while their shades had the look and feel of the best in the biz, they did something that …

SHARE WITH THE WORLD But, then again, maybe you don’t have adventurous mates. Oahu is undoubtably paradise, but the lure of sun-bathed beaches, humbling surf and hospitable locals has attracted more than a few permanent tourists. Myself being one of them. I’m not raised here but I have called it home for the past 9 years and in doing so, made a …

SORRY, I’VE BEEN SURFING….

SHARE WITH THE WORLD While i’ll avoid making a prediction for fear of jinxing the season for all of us: I dare say, this swell reminds me a lot of the pumping, swell filled, froth-fest that was last summer. Talk in the South Shore lineups was anxious and optimistic for what this summer has in store for us. So, with a …
