On The Board Magazine | Japan

Just got the new issue of On The Board Magazine.

Unreal shot of Tyler on the cover.

Tomohiro read me the article about Alex, Tanner, Harley, Yuta, and I.

Don't feel worthy of sharing an article with those 4 super-talented surfers. But stoked nonetheless.

Surfboard Raffle | Stoked and Broke Premier

Thanks to all of you who came out for the Stoked & Broke Premier on Thursday night.

Congrats to the winner of the 5'10 Sandia Fish. I forgot to get your name, but I wish you many happy sessions on that board.

Thanks Cy and Korduroy Crew for a great night.

Number 1,000

Here's Griffin's 1,000th shape.

Gully laid-up an extra special fin for this one.

Greg Haugh | Fuego Urbano

My good friend, Greg Haugh, is moving to Northern Chile next month. His plan is to live there for at least the next 10-15 years reaching out to the youth of the region.

He plan is to use sports, specifically surfing, to connect with, and reach out to the young people of Chile.

He was telling me that churches in Chile teach that surfing and sports are worldly activities that are a waste of time, so he's hoping to break that mentality by helping to show the young people what a gift surfing and nature really are.

In an effort to help support Greg's endeavor, we're going to donate 15% of our online store sales from now through October 31st, to Greg.

I embedded a little youtube video of Greg tearing it up down in Costa Rica a few years ago. Also, check out Greg's blog HERE.

Check out this rad interview with Levi Prairie on Korduroy.

Levi is one of the most stoked guys you'll meet, and I've been firends with he and Dylan since they were 14, so I'm super stoked to see how well things have been going for Gantez Warrior recently.

Keep it up Levi.
