Stand Up Paddling

BY HENRIK FAHLÉN
IN VARBERG

SUP stands for "Stand Up Paddleboarding," which means that you stand up on a big surfboard and use a paddle. This ancient form of surfing reemerged when surf instructors realized the benefits of it, that by being higher you can better see oncoming waves. Today, SUP has turned into the fastest growing water sport in the world. (in Swedish)

@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

Nostrum Collective is a photographic project to show the relationship between a group of friends formed on the sea for surfing and the Sea through our photo shoot. Every kind of relationship with the sea is accepted, whether it be surfing, swimming, fishing or diving- or simply looking into that magical blue water. Nostrum Collective would like to be a high quality photographic diary with a very deep Ligurian and Mediterranean identity to share with all people who love the sea and the many beautiful moments it gives to us.

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!

Sustainable Surfboards

BY COBUS JOUBERT
@ VOL 45 ON AUG 15, 2017

From plastic bags to pesticides - most of the waste we produce on land eventually reaches the oceans, either through deliberate dumping or from run-off through drains and rivers. Surfboards are 100% toxic, but there are sustainable surf craft options that can replace these toxic products. Cobus Joubert explains.
