Cyrus Sutton by Kyle Lightner

















Cyrus and Kyle are two of the more impressive people I know, and I'm honored to have them as friends. I don't mean they're impressive in the things they have accomplished so much as their commitment to their respective pursuits.

Cy's bio on Korduroy.TV touches on it a bit. "Cyrus awoke one morning realizing he was more of a consumerist shell than a real human being. Understanding that change wasn’t going to happen over night, he decided gathering his friends and building this website was a cool way to connect with other stoked people who want to move in a more rad direction." Ever since, Cyrus and friends have been using Korduroy TV as a vessel to "spread digital aloha."

Kyle, although he's no Pooch throwing double shakas to everyone he sees, is quietly and calculatedly documenting a subculture that resonates with him. And he's doing so at a level that we won't hardly be able to appreciate until we look back on it when we're all old and crusty.

Anyway, stoked about all that's happening behind the scene of this photograph.

I particularly like that Kyle captured Cy's last step to the nose, which is such a thrilling moment, as a surfer. Kyle isn't an action sports photographer, he's a lifestyle photographer, and for that I appreciate this moment he captured, right before Cyrus got to the nose on a beautiful day at Malibu.

Rocker looks like -,------------

Nathan Adams rides his board with very, very little rocker. This makes his boards extremely fast, but for the average surfer, they're not the easiest boards to turn.

Somehow, Nate still manages to do some rather impressive cutbacks.

This screen shot, of a video sequence, explains a bit of how Nate initiates a turn. (With his whole body)*


Dear Australia,

Dear Australia,

It all started as a harmless vacation, and I have no problems with that. In fact, I too want to visit Australia soon. But enough is enough. It's time for you to return Kameron Brown back to us. You've had your fair share.

Just return him in one piece and we can all go about our lives. We promise to send him back on occasion.

Sincerely,
California
