Tom Curren revolutionized surfing for at least two generations of Californians. Blending the style and positioning of ’70s masters with the radical new maneuvers and deep tube riding of the ’80s, Curren’s rose to professional dominance at a time of major design breakthroughs. His hometown shaper from Santa Barbara, Al Merrick, took the three-fin Thruster design and added complex bottom configurations to create boards that had never before existed.

T.T. Boy and Peter North dropped this off at Dubstar's crib to celebrate the New Year. They probably won't see EBAY but don't be surprised if you wind up paying $5,000 for one in the future. There's a funny story about D. finding a 'vintage' watering can on his way home from a surf and later,"giving this woman a sick deal on it," to the dismay of an attorney onhand.

For some reason The Fish has drifted out of fashion over the last couple of years, which is odd as the ride remains the same. My 5’10” Skip Frye Lakers Fish is 13 years old now and still feels as good today as it did in the beginning. Last year I asked Skip if he would make me a new 5’10”, I wanted to feel what he’d done to the design in the last 13 years. On my new Bombers Fish he pulled the tail in by a 1/4 of an inch and the fins were slightly smaller with slight curve in the back. The Lakers Fish had large straight back keels.

Insight’s Kill The Matador Event Recap March 26, 2013 Last Thursday the good crew at Insight invaded the shop for the final leg of their Kill The Matador tour, a new surf flick by Patrick Pearse starring the likes of Otis Carey, Ozzie Wright, Chippa Wilson, Derek Hynd and more. With help from PBR and Red Bull the night kicked off with a bang and the newest punk surf film to debut was blasted from our projector and speakers until the neighbors thought it was time to shut it down. With just about 100 people in attendance, and each of them receiving awesome gift bags of swag from Insight Clothing, we’d call it a successful night.
Whales, dolphins and seals have made a triumphant return to the waters just outside New York Harbor - and the comeback has even sparked whale and seal-watching tours. Tom Paladino , captain of two ferry boats from the Rockaways, says pods of aquatic mammals off the city's coast have "increased tenfold." "We used to see 10 whales a year - now we see 100," he said. "We saw dolphins almost on a daily basis between June and September." There are so many more seals in New York Harbor that earlier this month he started weekend tours on his ferry, American Princess.
Long features dubbed tiger stripes are known to be spewing ice from the moon’s icy interior into space, creating a cloud of fine ice particles over the moon’s South Pole and creating Saturn’s mysterious E-ring. (NASA) View a larger image. Scientists have been wondering for years if Enceladus , one of Saturn’s many moons, is home to a massive underground ocean that could contain life. Now, they have more evidence than ever to confirm that theory. Photos snapped by NASA’s Cassini probe in 2005 revealed plumes of vapor escaping the planet through “tiger stripes,” fissures in the moon’s icy surface. Many researchers thought that meant the moon contained an subterranean ocean, but were stumped when they could locate signs of salt thought to be essential for a body of water that size.
Democratic senators from the California, Oregon and Washington state launched a new drive Tuesday to ban drilling off the Pacific coast but face long odds of getting the bill past the House’s new Republican majority, especially at a time of high gasoline prices. The bill’s sponsors cited the economic and environmental risks of offshore drilling highlighted by last year’s Gulf of Mexico spill. “One of the lessons learned from the disastrous BP oil spill is that without a fundamental transformation of the oil industry, another spill is possible, even likely," said Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), one of the sponsors. A long-standing congressional ban on new Pacific offshore oil drilling expired in late 2008 as high gasoline prices became a hot political issue. Currently, the Pacific Coast is only protected by President Obama’s pledge that there will be no new offshore drilling, Cantwell said.
