I’m still in the process of adjusting back to reality after 18 days and nights on the Colorado River through all 280 miles of the Grand Canyon. An opportunity of a lifetime thanks to my sweetheart @srirachna ‘s bad ass family and grandma (“Gramsdolf the Great”) who had the foresight to apply for this permit a decade ago. As much an adventure as it was family reunion, it felt like we just scratched the surface of all the magic the canyon has to offer: slot canyons, waterfalls, massive caves, a new mind-bendingly beautiful camp every night. Despite the beauty it exhausted us all. We piled together like sunburnt seals and after the last rapid we tied our boats together and floated silently through the final night to lake Mead where we crawled out of the river and promptly drove to the Ace Hotel Palm Springs to recover with cocktails and aloe vera 💁‍♀️

When the surf blows out its time to bust out this little beast - a 16’ Prindle beach catamaran. I’m pretty sure it’s older than I am. Best craigslist score to date. Thanks for the pictures Dad! @arthouse41

In 1932, waterman badass pioneer Tom Blake patented the first hollow surfboard construction, a radical design departure from the heavy solid plank wood design that was used since the beginning of time in Hawaii. The hollow boards were relatively lightweight (50lbs!?) and perfect for the soft summer surf in Waikiki and Southern California. It had no fin, which Tom would invent a few years later, along with the first camera water housing so he could document his ocean radness. ... I’ve recently been obsessed with these Tom Blake inspired kookboxes. It’s a fun challenge to build one, the design is not overly complicated, and the way it glides on the water is perfect for California summer ankle slappers. ... @prana asked me a few questions about the process, which you can find over on their Instagram stories today 👉 Photo: @jeffjohnson_beyondandback #lifeispractice

When @benweiland invited me on a Baja road trip, the first thing I realized was that since we were driving I’d be able to take my favorite board, this 10’ Kookbox. I was psyched! It and turned out to be the perfect craft for little Baja peelers.

I used to think New Years resolutions were a silly tradition, but this year I’m giving it a shot: 1. Deodorant. 2. New day means new socks. 3. Only spend time on really important stuff. What are your New Years resolutions?

About 10 yrs ago i borrowed a kookbox from @thetorpedopeople and caught a few small waves before it was too waterlogged to surf. I’ve been curious about it ever since. Inspired by the tiny surf this summer, I finally found the time to build one myself. I was not disappointed. #kookbox photo by: @morganmaassen

@chris_sharma spent about 15min upside down on the roof of this cave before this moment. His level of skill and ease is so mesmerizing, you begin to think the laws of physics have made an exception for him.
