mick mackie's flex pin

it ain't easy to impress Ekstrom, but Carl was very stoked on
mick's concept and execution with this flex pin fish,
a new arrival in the Southland via Terra Australis Incognita.
"some good thinking went into this..."
understatement: mackie has serious skills in the boarding arts.
thats mark wolfinger giving the mackie a go.

Future Roots

Designs by Ekstrom, Mackie, Wegener, Bauguess...
echoes of Simmons, Lis, and the Ancients.

Dog is my copilot.

T.A., voluntary draftee into the test pilot program.
Respect and appreciation beyond words
for his enthusiasm and feedback.
Alva knows radness is intangible...
it just is.

remember the future

like many aquatic beings, it looks awkward on terra firma....
but once in its element it is full of speed, grace, and power.
"...and you'll never hear surf music again..."

the end of innocence

a small document from age 14 through 19 in the life of young Chris Slayter...
struggling through life, he surfs like a genius...when he surfs...
which is not too often these days.
