Good cat, Frank Cubillos, design this logo for me sometime ago. My life was crazy at the time, and become even more upside down later. But now, the things are getting on the track, in some way, and I was thinking about this logo... surprisingly, I check Frank's blog....
Thanks Mr. Cubillos. I love it again.

Tmoe, me and Micah Mattson. photo by Herbert Passos Neto Packing at my living room to go back to California.
Well, Jared Mattson (The Mattson 2) told me two weeks ago that his brother Micah and Thomas Campbell were coming to Brasil to set a installation at an art show in Sao Paulo called Transfer. So I email Thomas and invite to before or after the show, he could come to the beach and surf. He like the idea, and last saturday I went to Sao Paulo to see little from his work, and to drive them to the coast. It was awesome to see him working, and he was super nice with me and Ciro Bicudo. Sunday afternoon he rent it a car and I drove straight to my tinny apartment in Sao Vicente. We order pizza, and they said they never eat that many pizza in their whole lifes. At the show the people there order pizza every single night... so to celebrate, we order the last time at my place, and he saw on my tv deck my surf movies and ask to watch one in special called "Little Black Wheels" from my great friend Michael Waters, and he love it. Monday morning we went to the Quebra-mar (Emissario Submarino park) and he freak out about the skatepark. He said it's perfect! Him and Micah skate for some time, and they just love it. After that they went to surf, and a good friend of mine Herbert let Thomas use his longboard and Micah surfed with my single fin. The waves wasn't that good, but they had fun. After that we went to this Indian/vegetarian restaurant, and the food was great, and the talk too. Thomas was telling stories about the waves around his house in California and love the guarana juice that they serve at the place. Later we went to a supermarket to buy Havaianas sandals for them to bring back, and after back to apartment to pack and they left to the airport around four o'clock afternoon.
Well, it was nice and weird at the same time. Having such a legend around you and sleeping on the floor of your apartment, it's weird... but he was super cool, and treat everyone with kind and love. He loved the stories about Santos first surfer controversy, and about the surf break in front of my window, Garganta do Diabo. This year have been really hard for me, but some little things happen and give you a little inspiration. This weekend was inspiring. Thanks Tmoe and Micah for the nice time.

Yassine Ouhilal Thawscapes: visions of global warming

Art opening Friday March 12th 7:00-9:00pm at Argyle Fine Art

Thawscapes will show some of Ouhilal's most personal work. These images from the arctic regions of the world are an honest portrayal of the impacts of global warming on the far north. While some glaciers Ouhilal photographed are receding at alarming rates-many of which will be entirely gone in our lifetime, the thawed spaces left in these glaciers wake are revealed for the first time in recent geologic times.

A series of limited edition pure pigment on watercolour prints will be on display along with select, unique edition pieces.

Eu Mesmo Faria

"Eu Mesmo Faria" its the new movie from Brazilian surfer Junior Faria.
Junior is one of the best brazilian surfer, and a very aesthetic fellow.
Below, Junior words about the film,
"It´s a small project, mainly focused on my last two years as a freesurfer (since I quit the World Tour two years ago because of my convictions) and I managed to work with five of the best brazilian surf movie producers: Rafael Mellin, Henrique Daniel, Gustavo Camarão, Marcelo Dada and Pablo Aguiar. Each of this guys edited on part showing their style and translating their point of view about the trips we made together. I traveled with each producer separately in different periods of time to different places. "
The name in english it´s something like "That´s me".
You can check the trailer here http://vimeo.com/9327444
Junior also is a very talented photographer and you can check his work here http://www.jrfaria.com/
If not the only, one of the only brazilian pro surfer that really knows and do art in the best essence.
The premier will be here in Santos, on march 11th, 9PM at the Cine Roxy.
And you can get the movie purchasing the next Hardcore Magazine here in Brazil. www.hardcore.com.br

This is a beauty.... for real... the number 1 board of 20 is right on top of my sofa, and every time I walk by, I kind of stop and look at this graceful board.

First thanks is to Felipe Siebert. Such a young man with so much talent and skills... he's a young master of building this hollow wood surfboards.... they are so complex and so simple at the same time...
Second thanks... Jesse Ledoux... one of the nicest logos I ever saw, and it's for this board... tells everything... it's such an honor to have this made from him that it's kind of hard to believe...
Third thanks.... Dustin Ortiz... like Felipe's board.... so simple and so complex at the same time... thank you my brother...
It will be only 20 boards made from this design, all signed and numbered... Unique pieces...
Felipe is trying to arrange a way to export his boards, but until then, you can only purchase locally....
Love to all...
