A PhD in Surfboards

BY BEN WEI
@ PECHAKUCHA SUMMER PARTY- CURATED BY MINI ON JUL 21, 2017

"When I'm at the factory, I'm completely switched on. I'm almost not thinking about anything... I'm almost like a man possessed until I can reach that image that's in my head..."

In "A PhD in Surfboards" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Summer Party - Curated by MINI, Ben Wei (Wavecraft) shares his unique hybrid surf and skateboard designs which stem from his lifelong passions of surfing and skateboarding.

Ben is a surfboard shaper, artist, and musician originally from Oceanside, California now residing in Chiba. After falling in love with the country and its people, he decided to move from California to stay in one of Japan’s professional surfing meccas Ichinomiya, 8 years ago. Growing up in a surf shop, Ben basically earned a PhD in surfboards and wavecraft but after becoming dissatisfied with traditional board designs, he taught himself to shape so that he could bring a new breed of board into the market which he sells in his own shop in Tokyo. Check out his daily surfing updates on Instagram: benwei5050

カリフォルニア・オーシャンサイド市出身のBen Weiさんは、サーフボードシェイパー、アーティスト、ミュージシャンと多彩な顔を持ち、現在は千葉を拠点に活動しています。日本を大好きになり、故郷のカリフォルニアから日本のプロサーフィンのメッカである一宮市へ8年前に移住されました。サーフショップで育ったBenさんは、サーフボードとウェーブクラフトの”博士”ですが、徐々に既存のボードデザインに物足りなさを感じ、ボードシェイプを独学で習得、そして今や東京のご自身が経営するショップでの販売などサーフマーケットに斬新なボードを展開するまでになりました。サーフィンを毎日アップデートしているinstagram (@benwei5050)は要チェックです!

Who Do We Say That We Are

BY MARIAN LIOU
IN ATLANTA

Marian Liou had a few preconceived notions about what ATL was when she moved to here from California over a decade ago. But she found something different: "... Where the native or the sojourner both... can still fulfill their biggest dreams in a way that is true to themselves...". She came to this revelation via that quirky part of town I.T.P. (Inside The Perimeter) called Buford Highway and started the Instagram account, WELOVEBuHi. The rest you'll need to hear for yourself!

Presenters In his presentation (from PKN Hyderabad Vol. 9), Neil Ghosh shares his love for astronomy, and takes us on a tour that covers different aspects of the science, tying it to his own personal learning of it. Julia Bondarchuk is the owner of the cookery club and shop Edoque, and in her presentation (in Russian, from PKN St. Petersburg Vol. 20) she talks about her cooking parties and workshops, where cooking turns to a game, using culinary construction sets. The master classes and workshops have the goal of inspiring people to cook and to save time when doing so. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is whiskerlicious, with the wonderful illustrated poster for the upcoming PKN Mendoza Vol. 6, pictured above.  Photos The city of Chelmsford hasn't had its first PKN yet -- although we expect that will happen soon -- but here's what appears to be a bit of... guerrilla teasing? It was found on Instagram, with the tags #pechakucha, #chelmsford, and #20x20. Calendar Thursdays tend to be the night of choice for PKNs, and we have another busy one tonight (September 6): PKN Barnsley Vol. 5, PKN Dunedin Vol. 15, PKN Svendborg Vol. 2, PKN Singapore Vol. 5, PKN Santiago Vol. 3, and PKN Budapest Vol. 28.
