Stoked and Broke Premieres at La Paloma Theater

16 09 2010

Cyrus Sutton’s latest film, Stoked and Broke, premiered last week to two sold out shows at the La Paloma Theater in Encinitas California! The film follows Cyrus, of Korduroy TV, and Ryan Burch as they travel on a 30 mile journey down the coast of San Diego in search of the ultimate surf “staycation” on zero dollars. The film opens with a short  from Richard Kenvin’s Hydrodynamica, a treatise on surfriding craft design, and the shredtacular Tarp Pits, by Cyrus Sutton,  where landlocked skaters get totally tubed! The legendary author, artist, and board culture guru C R Stecyk III even came out for  the show! Yea, good old Encinitas and La Paloma… the best place ever to see a surf movie! Congrats to Cyrus and Ryan for a great film and sharing the stoke!

The Line-up

7 09 2010

In the sport of surfing there’s a unique little thing called the line-up. It’s a particular location off a sandbar, point, or reef where surfers hang out, chat, or pass out stink eye and wait for the waves to come in. Line-ups have their own personalities and moods, and are almost always as dynamic and changing as the waves themselves. Here are three artists and their interpretation of the line-up (the late Ron StonerKevin Roche, and Julie Goldstein).

Artist Susan Wickstrand and Art Brewer collaboration

8 06 2010

Documenting a few moments with artist Susan Wickstrand and legendary photographer Art Brewer. For their collaborative project, Art provided the primary images which Susan then collages with additional images, layers of paint, and finally an encaustic wax treatment. Featured subjects include Indonesia, Hawaii, and surfers such as Gerry Lopez and Dave Rastovich. The images, although iconic in and of themselves, are transformed as the pieces become complex visual narratives. These shots were taken in Art’s studio as he and Susan both “initial” each piece with their thumbprint and signature on verso.
