@dub0 ventured over to the mainland for some stunt double music video work but had a few brief windows to hunt some small kine Southern California wedges. The double whammy of ‘Rona and a brutal months-long flatspell had extinguished any morale amongst the majority of west coast wave riders. But when Dubb was dealt the mainland lemons upon arrival, he delivered some island lemonade (or breadfruitjuice?). The versatility flowed across all stances and we were on hand to capture a few moments while pushing our 9-5 schedule to the brink. He rolled up with his signature toe socks and Buffalo Bills sweatpants and walked away content after logging a few California novelty wedges.
We’ve neglected this space for far too long. Can’t believe it’s been almost two years since this Mexico run for Nick’s bachelor party. Beers and barrels and liquid bowel movements, you know the routine. Getting the crew together is harder and harder these days, making this outing a memorable one. Here’s Part I of the photos. Movie clip and a second photo segment currently cooking in the oven. Click the pics for full size.
Suicide visions. Louie gave Joe the nickname Suicide years ago at this very same spot for his long midday sessions under the blazing sun and casual walks back to our casita across the fiery black sands.
Nick Statom booked a short vacay in Cabo last year for a wedding and sent through this photo set from a few sessions spent in the salt amongst the shorebreak that abounds throughout that fingertip of dry, deserty coastline. There was a twinge of Pit mag nostalgia that crept over us as the empty barrel shots kickstarted our youthful memories. We found evidence of the epic Eddie Solomon (RIP) cover issue which still holds up today even in the Clark Little era. Somehow Cameron Steele’s Cabo infused poo canon has been erased from the internets altogether but lives eternally in our then-impressionable teenage minds. You can almost feel the dry heat, smell the tequilla, and envision the crystal blue waters in the pics below.
As you may have noticed, we’ve been a bit distracted round these parts for the past year plus. We even forgot about this siiick little minimag that Adam T. sliced together in between recovering from the last Holiday Hangover and making wedding plans. And it actually has enough pixels to dust the cobwebs off that old desktop machine to have a proper gander. Anyway have a look and maybe it will inspire enough to throw down some more 10 page amps in the future. In the meantime, check our Instagram and Facebook where we’ve made an honest living doing a little archive therapy.
