Beachbreak Boogie /// East vs West

From the creators of 1WV1FN, comes another fresh approach to the single fin log-riding contest that continues to widen the playing field and offer up a modest pay day while doing so. A contest with no travel costs, no entry fees, no heats, no false claims, no tri-fins  and no limited invites. Open to all men and women riding logs and forwarding the movement in their own way. Here’s the basic idea, best surfed beachbreak wave over a 3 month period wins. Simple as that. Winning male and female surfer each gets $800 usd and an invite into a future Vans Duct Tape Invitational held in beachbreak. The videographer for each winning wave will also receive $200 usd. Numbers taken from top 6 waves in both men/women will determine an overall “coast” winner. Winning coast will retain all bragging rights for one year and we’ll probably so something else cool as well.

EAST COAST TEAM: East Coast US, Africa, Brazil, Europe, Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, etc

WEST COAST TEAM: West Coast US, Hawaii, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Bali, etc.

Nathan McKee - Surf Vids

We recently commissioned our friend Nathan McKee to create an original cut & paste piece based off some of surfing’s most important film contributions. This piece was a gift for Joel Tudor as a modest tip of hat for his contributions to surfing (and he put us up at the house a few times). All Nathan’s work is hand cut and pasted using construction paper. The piece measures ? and will be released as a print very soon.

Innocnts At OPABF

Very stoked to be a exhibiting at the first annual #OPaBf (Other Place Art Book Fair), an art fair within an art fair at the Independent Artbook Fair. Does that sound confusing? Ya it probably should so here’s the breakdown.

The Other Place Art Fair is fluid in definition, bonded by an intention to operate in other places outside the traditional art gallery systems, Other Places art fair (OPaf) features participants presenting site-specific booths encapsulating their projects and programming. Representing the growing movement of hard to define art project spaces, OPaf provides a custom art fair structure designed specifically for these unconventional projects.

OPaF has a booth at this year’s Independent Artbook Fair and within this event they have created a scaled down art fair (1:12 scale to be exact) with machete set up. There are 10 booths / exhibitors in total with each project being allotted a 10 inch by 10 inch booth. It is up to each exhibitor to curate that space as desired.

Innocnts will be highlighting 3 distinct Los Angeles artists with narrative based work including Sickid, Coulter Jacobs, and Jose Araujo. Each artist has made a limited number of works specific to the project and will be highlighted during the run of the fair(s).
