East coast tour of stoke and waffles has been all time. @heritagesurf @fariassurfsport showed us a jersey special of a good time. Tomorrow #stokeorama will be happening in Manasquan at the inlet with the help of the family Schmidt @patschmidt @meatface_ . If you’re around please come down hang out, surf, corn dog and enjoy!!! MASSIVE thank you to the vans east coast squad ( bk, pat, brad, Ross, and Harry for making every day and every waffle rad) @vans always has the way of making things special, these dudes keep it classic... thanks boys.
Guaranteed to not feel like your normal shortboard. @sealtooth went free radical shape this year. Dare you to come down to the HB pier and ride it or another one of the duct tape festival shapes. They are sitting on the beach just waiting for you to wax them up!
Team solar shield makes the BIG PUSH. Sold at most rite aids and wal marts.
This THURSDAY in HB @patrickgud and @cisurfboards launching “fever voyage”. Pat has been riding the fever for the last years and wanted to celebrate its life with a gut busting, face searing super nova of an edit. So if you can make it to the premier bring some sunscreen kids it’s gonna be a scorcher!!! Let’s go!
Celebrate one of the most pure Italian stallions in the game. Happy b day @frankiebdandrea, if you know frank you know his positivity is endless and at full volume, just the way it should be played! Thanks for all the pep talks and cold ipas! Keep em cold brother! Happy b day!
This past weekend we got to sharpen the ✏️ of water safety skills with @b.w.r.a.g in San Diego. A huge thank you to everyone at bwrag for creating these summits and sharing your wealth of knowledge with the crew. I urge you to follow them and stay in touch to take the classes when they come around your neighborhood. They are doing amazing things. For me was most stoked on learning 3 ways to get unconscious victims on a surfboard and paddle them in from @gerglong. It was 2 days, in class rooms and on the beach being able to pick the brains of men who have learned from the frontline. Thank you bwrag for having us and @positivevibewarriors down for the weekend. Love your work @hargrave @danilocouto11 @gerglong @rickywhitlock @jojoroper @dustinfiero ❤️🙌🏻 all insane photos from @jimmicane
@mike_andrews3 and I running down some smokin hot channels with an air planer. Didn’t see that one coming! ❤️ @cisurfboards ❤️
Doors of perception ❤️
Very cool Sunday morning Leucadia farmers market surprise. Looks like some of the students at Paul ecke central school are doing a board drive to help support @urbansurf4kids . Honestly gave me the chicken skin because I randomly was walking by and read this and that’s how I learned. I’m gonna go donate one of my boards this week, and if you around the area too you should as well. If anyone knows the kids who are behind this amazing act of kindness can you tag them or their parents because I’d like to stoke them out with some goodies as well as give them a high five. 🙌🏻❤️ p.s the drawing and the poster absolutely RULE
A slideshow feature because I haven’t had the time to do one in far too long. So much has happened. I’ll send a postcard when I can. I’ll describe each now. Wow, James from jeopardy finally went down to Emma but I believe it was 33 straight days of being a king of random insanely hard information to know, big ups j bone. Then, a surprise board order from @cisurfboards a rocket wide with twin fins. Celebration spray, hope you enjoy. Next, better oblivion community center, I’m close to playing it too much because I love it so, shelbs always lets me know when I do that. Then Shelby and Our small bear in big bear. Ever camped and taken long bike rides? Wow. Next, a boogie board backpack....with a surfboard inside it?!?! Yes. Watch out lowers drop offs! Hiking one in has got a whole new meaning! Then a token surf photo. Grounds the reason for the slideshow season...this a bottom turn on a Tavarua wall of doom. I threw in the greatest hits photo of when Brice and I went horseback riding. Notice Brice’s hat, he always has a good hat. Then recently it was happy national #gettoknowyourskilsaw day, not sure if you celebrated too...didn’t see much on Instagram hope it was fun. And finally two texts sent between Shelby and I. One when I was showing her how hard I was working, the other when no words were needed. Hope you enjoyed, give a high five to a friend soon.
@positivevibewarriors grom of the week nomination from @austinware . Austin on a surf trip with @maisuma to the lovely destination of Maldives came across this legend. Ahmed anoof, the goofy footed hammer!!!! Austin came straight home and said Ahmed is leading the way for passing the stoke in the line ups on those perfect atoll passes. Big ups brother! @a_anoof hopefully I can make it back over for a surf trip soon. Miss the Maldives ❤️❤️❤️
You’ll find the most awesome stuff on a bike ride in o side. Major “free stuff” score. After market @cisurfboards flyer Mod boogie tail, og chop tail re glassed tribal single fin and potential thruster or wing fcs 2 plugs. Concave deck by design not age. Broken bicycle chain Al Merrick logo. Major stoke o Rama. If it fires you up, give someone around you a high five or go ride your bike, great for the legs and or getting new boards. 🙌🏻🍒
A moment in time, on one of the skunkiest trips ever had. Off season hossegor you old son of a bitch you! Love this shot tho. 🍷🍷🍷🍷
I love the new @vans x Harry Potter collection. These Sox rock even tho im still a hufflepuff ❤️ thanks @chester_calderon21
Just because I’m a Shelby 8 super fan, I surprised @shelbyharvey_ and got some of her photos glassed into my new surfboards. I’ve always admired that she can capture people enjoying life so naturally. Then I got too excited and told her before I got the boards in true “me” form.....😆😂Anywho makes these new happy model boards look even better with some folk in their own happy places ha! Much love shelb 8 you always keep that focus and fun❤️. 📸 of me with boards @grantellis1 // other shot @shelbyharvey_ // frame 🎥 @alexkilauano

A massive thank you to @bernie_wohlfarth and @bryan.wohlfarth for being the driving force behind this tournament each and every year. The moneys that are raised each year are an integral part of the @positivevibewarriors activations and scholarships. It purely wouldn’t be possible without the Wolfarth clan, thanks guys! If you like golf, and having a good time and a cold dog check it out! 🙌🏻
Who is this guy? Shelbs and I grinding out jeopardy to see when he is gonna go down, but it isn’t happening. Freak mode! Plays it cool as a cucumber as he is on a million now!!! #doublejeopardyalways
starting to wonder when do @hanaleireponty and @patrickgud find time to sleep? Today marks the opening of an adventure for those two in the world of retail. @daysonthemotu is such an uplifting, inviting and unique space. I know it’s been a fun and long journey to create the idea and open the location. And that hard work looks incredible!!!! was such a joy getting to see the fruits of your labor on opening day. Congrats you guys, you’re always setting new bars of being rad people achieving dreams together and individually. The store rocks, the fact you’re gonna be parents rocks and I love both of you. ❤️
A grouping of photos and videos from my Texas trip. I will describe each now. First a joy ride at the cable park. (Trix are for kids) then i have Ollied a 3 stair in 3 states of America...this is my 4th. And then a photo cheers celebrating @dylangraves pulling an air on the freak peak. To call for the freak peak you must now put up the bino man signal. Congrats Dylan. And then I learned how not to wakeboard... and that built up a thirst (next image) the lone star beer. National beer of Texas. Enjoyable. We drank quite a few. Also to be noted (booties in image) @vanssurf new booties are the jam. Then an intimate audio statement from @r_ritchie before attempting the mega slide on skateboard. Slide to next image for size of the ramp, we are so proud of the person you are Reagan. Then @nolannow spotted packing up his magic quiver. Nolan is the first official surf mat tube in Texas...maybe the world...cheers Nolan. Then a goodwill score in Waco, top gun and Indiana Jones vhs movies in mint condition for the cost of 49 cents, wow. And finally the spirit of @wadegoodall in the form of a t shirt I bought for him and have taken on every trip with me this year. I’ll get it to you soon wade o. I was unable complete that passion pop hopefully we can all go back sometime soon. Thanks.
Got an old @cisurfboards classic -sashimi model- on Craigslist the other day. Little test spin felt Gangnam style. Thank you to both social platforms for being a tool to show that people who hoard and collect can also enjoy surfing! 🙌🏻 #notacraigslistad #needhelpcleaningposessions #shelbyhelp #buyingthingsalot #alsoboughtaharmonium
A potpourri of my Australian surfabout. I will describe each now. First was a joyride in a heat at Newcastle. Second...upper crust, meat pies in Australia so good! Then I saw @donaldbrink, rad! And then it rained before @beyrick heat...he is soaking it in. And then a clip of inspiration Norwegian poetry from @dylangraves and finally a beer. In a @hydroflask. Oz was a trippy trip! ❤️
Down south waxing the hell out of a rocket wide in my Lithuanian Olympic jersey on a scorcher ball of a trip! Life is cool. @dylangraves I might have to nominate Lithuania for some #weirdwaves action!
Handmade love journal from shelb 8 for my traveling art activities. Here is a couple from down under mate. @shelbyharvey_ ❤️
Surfing is the family. There are so many people doing such awesome things within surfing for people to connect and love the ocean. We have all learned from someone somewhere. The best gift back is seeing someone start their journey of surf. pass stoke 🙌🏻 a hoot, a high five, a wave, a surfboard. No deed is too small to stoke someone out.
Killer session today with tk. Felt like I was a grom! 😂 📸flame
@_danielrusso_ always makes magic with what he sees in sessions. This one was a bit of a slalom of joy.
I always used to love seeing photos of my heroes like Tom Carroll, Occy, Egan and their front leg was sometimes straight in frontside carves. So wound up off the back foot they could be fully extended on the front one. Was really stoked on this photo even though I think I’m gritting my teeth really hard but because my front leg was getting straighter! 📸 @jimmicane
The new voyage trunk is the jam. 📸 @lawrence_photo
Not sure if you’ve been following the @vanssurf Instagram lately but the surf division has had a fresh feel. Off the wall and into the water! Congrats to the crew. I love the attitude and imagery! ❤️🙌🏻 @vanssurf
This weeks @positivevibewarriors grom of the week is an all time legend. Alex @apc_cool_pics is keeping the east coast crew stoked up and gripped up with his blue wonderland wax. He says “the stoke is on and it will always be” hey now!!! The link to the story is in my bio please go give it a read Alex is the real deal!!!
