Bear Cummings, Kirra, during Cyclone Winston, from the portfolio of Corey Wilson in TSJ 26.1. “Bear and Mick Fanning were among a small handful surfing this day,” says Wilson. “There was too much water moving to swim, so we took out a ski as a platform and to shuttle guys around. It was a combined effort for sure.”

A surfing stray finds himself at work in Paris. “One week ago, I discovered a velvet-colored mouse half drowned in a bottle of truffle oil. Never have I seen such a rodent. Its coat had the richness of raw cacao, its eyes like sterling eggs.” Read more at

Interview: Barton Lynch. “I remember being over in the schoolyard at Sunset Beach Elementary with George Downing. He had wet and dry sandpaper and I’m watching him spitting on the rail of my board and just fine tuning the edge for me and I’m thinking, ‘Here is one of the most amazing elders we have in our culture…and he’s helping this young kid from Australia.’”

Last week, surfing lost one of its icons in Bruce Brown. In memory of his passing, we are honored to share selected photographs of the late auteur in the process of making his masterpiece, The Endless Summer, the film that changed surf culture forever, and for the better. Few people become synonymous with an entire cultural movement. Fewer still possess the qualities to move a culture entirely. RIP Bruce Brown. 1937-2017.

The Thomas Fires have left our community in halves. People are either in need or wanting to help. The I&R Relief Team has been established to bridge the gap between these two places. To get done what needs to get done, by connecting those who can provide with those who need relief.
Via a live and constantly updated list of needs, created by The I&R ground team, their hub is able to dispatch and tailor relief efforts. Thus we are able to get more done and impact in the lives of those who have been so devastatingly altered by these fires.

The best way for you to help in this moment is to donate directly to the I&R Relief Fund or donate goods that are specific to their live list. If you or can be of service please contact: or go to ( They are here to help you help. Follow @ironandresin and @helpcalifornia for updates on needs and moves.

A call to action from Derek Hynd: "A tragedy on one of the planet's best beach breaks - probably one of the world's top five, is unfolding on King Island, Bass Strait, Tasmania. The licence for a huge fish farm set in the waters just metres from the bend that begins the beach called Martha Lavinia is close to being granted. Whether by physical pollution, overbearing smell, disturbance to the prevailing current and sand flow that sweeps into Martha's or far worse, the attraction of Great Whites, the situation is totally unacceptable. Already rejected in other areas do to such controversial practice, this scenario cannot be allowed to unfold. Please voice your opinion be it to friends or to protest organiser Sean Davey or up the chain to the Member for Braddon, Justine Keay, in the Australian Parliament. Tough pill to dish out but for those unaware of its LONG LIVE MARTHA and the man who put it on the map, Jeremy 'Wire' Curtain R.I.P."

There is only one true source of asym, and Ryan Burch is his prophet. ⠀
Shaper/designer/futurist Carl Ekstrom has devoted his life to the articulation of these counterintuitive vessels. Contemporary interest in his designs was sparked by regular TSJ contributor Richard Kenvin, who rode the hell out of them. RK quickly tapped Burch as a willing test rider and foam-mowing stablemate for Ekstrom. ⠀
Since that introduction nearly a decade ago, Burch has worked closely with both Kenvin and Ekstrom, logging breakthrough lines in the process. ⠀
In the link in our bio, filmmaker Ryan Thomas (fresh off the trail of Psychic Migrations, and headed toward his upcoming Temporal Collections) delivers the motion goods—along with some longer-form evolutionary connections. Shot at Grajagan in 2011, it features previously unseen footage of Burch’s first asym experimentations outside of California, resulting in an interlude that’s a suitable pairing for the asym feature in the latest Journal.

Traffic there, and back. Tough looks from the crew on the wall. Heavy emphasis on ride sharing. But, the pocket on a First Point runner still makes Malibu worth it. Unknown, summer 2016. Photo: @derekdunfee

California based, but globally relatable. Literary, but not academic. Timely, but not trendy. Authoritative, but not dry. Deluxe, but not fancy. Give the surfer in your life a gift that unwraps itself in their mailbox six times a year.
