Watch: “Not Today” Dane ponders what’s next.

Surf media impresario, garmento, husband, and dad, the multi-talented Dane Reynolds has gifted us with another episode of Chapter 11.

Read: “Cold Comfort” A photo essay by Marcus Paladino

And by the looks of…

What Youth Drinks: The Mai Tai The origin might not be what you thought

With the Hawaiian surf scene in full swing, and as they often do this time of year, our minds turn to the classic tropical cocktail, the Mai Tai. The Mai Tai holds two places of meaning in our collective hearts: As mentioned above with Hawaii and that oh so special connection to a sunset Mai…

Watch: Hues Late season Teahupoo

The wonderfully talented Perry Gershkow stayed late into the Tahitian season to capture a few gems down the end of the road. Mostly a local crew – we didn’t catch all the names – but they know who they are. Mr. Gershkow always sends his best work and this one won’t disappoint. Just some perfect…
