The Slow is Fast Tour

A very Malloy bike trip along the California coast

Men. Doing manly man stuff. Guys with beards driving tractors, harvesting crops, riding horses, driving pickup trucks. This is the Malloy way.

You know those slow moments during a contest webcast when your mind begins to wander and you start to imagine what it would be like if yesteryear's pros surfed against today's ASP darlings?

How the best freesurfers on the planet would fare when thrown into the bloodthirsty world of competitive surfing? We composed a fantasy slate of two-man heats to find out.

From the Projects to Marin

A San Francisco surf camp brings the Sunnydale kids to the beach

Sunnydale, known as “The Dale” or “The Swamp,” is San Francisco’s largest housing project, and statistically speaking, the most dangerous neighborhood in town. Glover has partnered with local shaper Tim Gras and filmmaker Adam Warmington in an effort to bring kids from the Sunnydale projects to the Big Dog camp in Marin, teaching them how to surf, and showing them a world outside of their violent urban homes.

Ando’s Slow Dance Interview

Craig Anderson on starring in his own surf movie, rolling with Occy, and getting punched in the face by a Frenchman

Slow Dance, the Craig Anderson-starring, Dane Reynolds-edited, Occy and Rob Machado and Matt Hoy-cameoed summer surf blockbuster opens on Saturday, July 20 at Quiksilver's Huntington Beach headquarters. Ando and crew then trundle off through Australia, Japan, and Europe on a Slow Dance mini tour. Last week I chatted with Craig over e-mail about the making of Slow Dance, but more importantly about things like the weirdness of seeing yourself on the big screen, and taking off on waves when Dane Reynolds and Occy are watching. It was easily one of the politest e-mail exchanges I've ever had.

“Drift” Hits The Mainstream

Australian film is ostensibly about surf history; totally disregards surf history; is still really fun

First, let’s get this bit right out of the way: there is never going to be a mainstream film about surfers that will “get surfing right.” Hell, there are plenty of surf industry-produced videos that don’t get surfing right. So, dispense with that notion before you see Drift, and you should have no trouble enjoying yourself. This is, above all else, a pretty fun film that you’d have to go out of your way to dislike.

Greatest Rides of Tom Servais

The soft-spoken photographer opens up about three of his most celebrated images

For decades Servais has quietly built a legendary portfolio of some of surfing’s most treasured photos. I recently spoke with Servais about his contributions to the “Greatest Rides” list. Servais, easily one of the most published photographers in the 1990s and 2000s, was quick to humbly deflect praise, chalking up his success to luck and lots of hard work.

Uncharted Waters

Master stylist and recluse extraordinaire Wayne Lynch gets the biopic treatment

Griffin traces Lynch’s surfing life from annointed teenaged surf messiah, to reluctant, world-beating competitor, to wizened, hermetic sage. And the journey, I’m pleased to report, is an absolute joy.
