Sup Surfing Jackson Close 10ft Deep 2016

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Jackson Close is an 4x Australian Longboard champ and an 4x Australian Sup champ. If my math is any good, thats a 8x Aussie champion. And if you add the two surfing disciplines together and multiply it with a factor of Jackson on a Deep 10’x26″x4″ it equals this.

ISLAND MAGIC 1972 Rare Surf Film

Friday, May 6th, 2016

1972, 75 mins The poster for this film is well known but the film isn’t. Island Magic was a cool early 1970s surf film by John Hitchcock. While carefully avoiding surf spot identification, the film has footage of rarely shown locales on Maui and Kaui, along with the guys who ride the best but are seen the least, including Joey Cabell, Bob Stay, Buddy Boy, and others. The only dialogue consists of taped voice-overs by Jackie Baxter, Gerry Lopez, Dick Brewer, and Owl Chapman. A juicy session from start to finish. Starring Dick Brewer Owl Chapman Jackie Baxter Buddy Boy Kaohi Gerry Lopez Jimmy Lucas Sam Hawk & Joey Cabel
