Stoked & Broke | Cy's Aquatic Almond

Get your copy of Stoked & Broke for Christmas!

Here's a look at Cy's Aquatic Almond #1, the board that Cyrus rode in Stoked and Broke.

If you haven't seen the film, it's better than Avatar... but that's just my opinion. (Sorry James)

Mr. Hiromichi Soeda

Tomohiro's dad, Hiromichi Soeda, owns Soeda Surfboards Japan (SSJ) the company that distributes our surfboards in Japan. He is a legendary Japanese surfer who has been charging big waves in Hawaii and Japan for decades.'

Nathan and I got to meet Mr. Soeda while we were in Japan in October. We hung out at the beach with him during our surfboard demo in Shonan. Tomo told us that he had never seen his dad ride a longboard, and he probably hadn't done so since he was a kid. So, of course getting him to paddle out on a log became an instant goal for the trip.

During the demo, without the slightest prompting from any of us, Mr. Soeda zipped up his wetsuit, snatched Nathan's 9'9 off of the sand and headed toward the water. Needless to say, I was thrilled. I snapped a photo of him carrying Nate's board, then climbed up onto the sea wall to get a photo of him in trim on a log. The whole peanut gallery on the beach was loving it, I'm just glad I was able to snap a photo. Not sure if it was enough to convert him to a part-time logger.

Sandia Fish

Saw this this photo of a 5'6 Sandia Fish on Quality Peoples, and it reminded me that I forgot to post another good photo of this board, courtesy of Nicole.

Happy 28th Birthday Cy!!!!

We want to wish a happy barrel-filled day to our good friend Cyrus Sutton.

Have a blast in Hawaii! Mele Kalikimaka Amigo!

Gulliver's Travels

Here is a recent chessboard D fin by Gully. This kid has grown up a ton. He's been surfing so good and, as always, his fins continue to keep me stoked and inspired.

Look how little Gully was when he first started making fins...

Thanks for all your fine work, pal.

Almond @ Generic Youth

We're doing a little install at Generic Youth from now until Christmas. {1609 Pomona}

Stop by and see some of the new stuff we've been working on.

There might even be some mysterious collab in the works; but I'd never tell.

Cy's Aquatic Almonds

There are only a handful of Cy's Aquatic Almonds in circulation so far, and somehow Patrick Derry owns two of them. Glad you found a longboard you can't live without. (times 2)

This is Cy #1 and Eco-Cy at the beach.

Cam put together a little Surf Thump clip for your informational and viewing pleasure.

Speaking of Surf Thumps, we've got a used on in the shop at the moment. I swiped it off the racks while I was waiting for my new board, but now I'm flipping it. Perfect condition.
