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)

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!

PKN Raglan Vol. 1

Raglan recently hosted its very first PechaKucha Night, and here now is a look at how things went courtesy of a report sent in by organizer Rodger Gallagher. Last night's first PechaKucha Night at the Old School Arts Centre was a great success with standing room only in the theatre room. The evening started with David Wimmer giving his presentation on the work that he and Frank did in Samoa helping the Samoans rebuild 'upstairs' after the tsunami. Dirk de Ruysscher covered the very interesting bike ride he has developed to the Nikau cave near Port Waikato. The trip includes harbour crossing and two days riding on metal roads with some amazing scenery along the way and of course an unspoilt cave at the overnight stop. Jean Carbon finished the first half with her presentation on traditional textiles along the Silk Road. The 'Beer Break' proved very popular and it was difficult to get the audience back for the second half. Pieter ten Broek's photos of board and kite sports around Raglan drew gasps of amazement from the audience. Wanda Barker provided a contrast with her history of Femme Art and the proposition that it needs to be revitalised. Hilary Ramage covered creative development through a series of prints. Finishing the night was Jon Berczley who took us right from the seed through to putting food on the plate with his gardening passion. Arts Council Chairperson, Rodger Gallagher said that the PechaKucha Night was one of the most successful events held at the Arts Centre and everybody is keen for the next evening on the 4th June. Full list of presenters: - David Wimmer on the rebuilding work he helped with after the Samoan tsunami - Amanda Watson on creating her paintings - Dirk de Ruysscher on mountain biking around Whaingaroa - Rodger Gallagher on the evolving architecture and use of the Old School since 1883 -- including 1st public viewing of plans recently discovered in the National Archives - Linda Holmes on favourite photos - Jean Carbon on textiles along the Silk Road - Pieter ten Broek on surfing, kite and skate boarding in Raglan - Wanda Barker on Femme Art - Yann Bordier on living and sailing in the Caribbean - Sioux Swann on Ruapuke Sunsets - Hilary Ramage on creative printmaking - Jon Berczely on seeds Below, a look at the flyer for PKN Raglan Vol. 1.

A Very Young Presenter, Stand Up Paddleboarding, and Photos from Cape Town

Presentations You're never too young to do a PechaKucha presentation! Meet Archie, aged 7, who takes the opportunity in his presentation (from PKN Derby Vol. 5) to introduce us to his friend Jeremiah, aged 6, who lives in Kenya. As we learn in Henrik Fahlen's presentation (in Swedish, from PKN Varberg Vol. 2), 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. Posters We kick off the week on the Tumblr blog with this new poster from Aalborg, for the city's upcoming Vol. 10. It was designed by Helena Sokol. You'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. Photos Cape Town had its Vol. 21 just a few days ago, and here's a post from someone who attended the event that includes some rather nice photos from the event.  Calendar There are no PKNs on the agenda for tonight, but tomorrow (November 13) you'll find the following four events: PKN Brighton Vol. 17, PKN Leksand Vol. 5, PKN Denver Vol. 15, and PKN San Diego Vol. 16.

5 reasons why Pecha Kucha is **THE** night out in Coventry this Friday...

Yes, it's Pecha Kucha night at the Tin Music & Arts centre from 7pm this Friday, here's 5 reasons why this night of merry amusement just might be for you... 1) If you like TED talks, stand up comedy or open mic nights - Pecha Kucha is sort of like all three rolled into one. At each night there's a massive mix of zany, opinionated, inspirational and downright oddball people talking (or perhaps shouting, dancing, miming or singing) through a series of 20 images. You don't have to worry about stifling any yawns, each person is only allowed 20 seconds per image... before you know it you've had six and a half minutes of eclectic entertainment... and after 3 or 4 you realise the £3 entry is definitely giving your two bob's worth. 2) TFI Friday and alcohol is served. The Tin offer loads of continental drinks and local brews including Coventry's very own Byatt's beer. 3) Fighting winter flu? You can watch Pecha Kucha from your sickbed - All the Pecha Kucha presentations are put online at www.pechakucha.org/cities/coventry. Seriously laugh-out-loud recommendations from the Pecha Kucha Coventry 'Christmas' edition are: How to Annoy Your Friends on Facebook at Christmas by Simon Fairbanks and Placing Children on Your Lap: the Art of Ventriloquism by Michael Mayhew.  You can also follow antics via Twitter live on the night @PKN_coventry. 4) Try it and like it? You can go to a Pecha Kucha night ANYWHERE in the world. Originally starting in Tokyo (the tongue twisting "Pecha Kucha" title means "chit chat"), nights now take place in over 700 cities worldwide. So next time you're surfing the Air B&B waves to Dubai, Budapest, San Francisco or Paris you can also take in a Pecha Kucha night*. 5) If you get the itch after seeing (and possibly secretly mocking) others, you can have a go too. Anyone is welcome to sign up to 'do' a Pecha Kucha night on any subject, in any style, with any images and props you might care to use. Once you've completed this curious right-of-passage, you realise there's no return; it's addictive, it's fun and it's a serious preference to sitting in and worrying about your post-January diet. See you on Friday! *disclaimer - not all nights may be as good as Pecha Kucha Coventry. Please also note that you could be educated or inspired and that there's a serious risk of meeting people... PECHA KUCHA COVENTRY Friday 20th February 7pm-11pm 'Design your City' - a theme for Global Pecha Kucha Night @ The Tin Music & Arts (formerly Taylor John's House), Leicester Row, Coventry, West Midlands, CV14BN Presenters, event details, maps here.

Couch-Surfing: A New Way to Travel

"It's not about a free couch, it's about sharing an experience." In Couch-Surfing: A New Way to Travel, from Bryan, Vol. 3. full-time animation and graphic arts instructor, and part-time couch surfer, Barbara Klein, explores an unconventional travel accommodation, on the couches of strangers.  Much to her friend's and family's dismay, Klein shares how putting herself in the unknown, and her trust in others, has lead to serendipitous results. She adds that pushing one's boundaries, by either accepting accommodation on a strangers couch or offering one's couch up to a travelling stranger opens a space for sharing time and new experiences with new friends in exciting and interesting new contexts.
