For The Love: Andy Davis Episode 021: Playful, psychedelic and light presented by Vissla
You know Andy Davis’ art. Even if you don’t know it yet. It’s fun and colorful and somehow skirts around the psychedelic, but does so in a playful, lively and light way. We recently stopped by Said Space Studios for a quick hello and chatted about his work and some of the recent projects he’d done with…
For The Love: Leo Valls Episode 020 Presented by Vissla: Molded by the streets of Bordeaux
Leo Valls is a reminder about how environment can shape your skating. Growing up in the storied streets of Bordeaux, France, Leo’s style is unlike anything e’ve ever seen. Molded by the marble and brick sidewalks of the city, he’s reminded us all that as skaters, surfers, painters, poets and creators we get to write our signature…
For The Love: Alex Gardner Episode 019 Presented by Vissla
Alex Gardner loves the idea of making stuff. And lucky for us, when he does that it’s beautiful and powerful. His paintings grab you immediately. And we wanted to learn more about this Southern California native’s process. So we went for a visit and found his space inspiring and odd. Exactly how we’d hope for…
For The Love: Jeff McCallum Episode 018 Presented by Vissla
Jeff McCallum wanted to be an NBA star. And standing at 6’3″ and growing up in Colorado, it was probably more likely a profession early on than what he’s doing now: which is shaping some of the most one-of-a-kind, beautiful surfboards you’ll ever lay your eyes on. And doing it out of National City, San Diego….
For the Love: Froth Episode 017 Presented by Vissla
Just to be clear, Froth is not a surf rock band. Although that didn’t stop us from having them play Kolohe’s premiere of “Brother” at the Stance HQ a few weeks ago. The L.A. locals just dropped their new album “Bleak,” but don’t let bleak be the definitive word for this band. Consciously straying away from…
For The Love: Tropical Popsicle Episode 016 Presented by Vissla
Tropical Popsicle are simultaneously laid back yet serious when it comes to their music. They cruised into the music scene back in 2011, throwing in there a collective mix of psych, post punk, and jangle pop. Our friends at Lolipop Records put their first album, The Dawn of Delight, out on tape in 2013 and…
For The Love: Marquis Preston Episode 015 presented by Vissla
In this episode of For the Love we catch up with Marquis Preston. A few years ago he had his debut part in Emerica’s Stay Gold and it was good. After that dropped we didn’t hear much from him. So, we spent a few days with him in his hometown. Skating the park and chatting to…

For the Love: The Hager Brothers Episode 011 presented by Vissla
We met Cody and Jared Hager while filming Collin Provost’s Fairly Normal part. Originally from Tehachapi, California they moved to HB to pursue skateboarding — not to be pro, but just to be around it and to skateboard, a lot. And this was that time when everyone lived in HB. When they moved here Jared…
