90 Minutes: The World Cup of NYC

For those who won’t be able to make it to Brazil for the World Cup 2014, it looks like NYC is by far the second best place to be. I’m loving the vibe of this documentary.

Grain Surfboards

What would be cooler than having your own wooden surfboard? Getting to build your own wooden surfboard of course. I’ve been a sucker for hand crafted wooden surfboards ever since I saw one for the first time. So I was really stoked to find out about Grain, a surfboard manufacturer that allows anyone willing to learn, the opportunity to build their own wooden board.

Grain offers a variety of shapes as kits. Each kit includes all the parts, materials, and instructions you will need for the project. So if you have a little room available, are able to follow instructions, and have a little patience, you will end up with your own wooden surfboard, and an awesome learning experience.

Check out this two part short by High Seas Films for a visit to Grain, and a closer look at the building process.

Do want one so bad!

Revisiting the Work of Hans Van Dermeer

When I blogged about photographer Hans Van Dermeer for the first time my focus was mostly his book European Fields. At the time I was not aware of Van DermeerĀ“s other soccer projects such as Dutch Fields, Keepers and the one I found most interesting, Bhutan-Monserrat The Other Final, a match between the two worst ranked countries in the world. So stop by his homepage and take a closer look at this amazing body of work.
