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
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!
