#Whale be #spouting out about it - if we see more of these sea critters cruising around the beach this weekend. 🐳🐳🐳 Seen quite a few #ceatations recently, and we sure don't want them sucking in plastic trash while they play in the waves either, so let's all take a page from Joel Harper's @allthewaytotheocean book and keep our coastlines clean ! @seachangestory 💙💙💙 And if you want to take a #deeper dive into how surfers can help support all of our whale, dolphin and other finned friends - check out the @s4cglobal crew , which was started by fish/man @daverastovich after he was protected from a shark attack by his own guardian #dolphin. 🐬🐬🐬 #deepbluelife

Honored to be chatting today about the future of surfboard #innovations on a panel talk with master #shapers @mcsurfboards @marcandreini and #JeffClark at the @boardroomshow ! 🗣🗣🗣 In a nod to pioneering design maverick George #Greenough - @surfer_magazine 's panel was called the "Grass is always Greenough" , and it was inspiring exploring the new ways surfboards are moving towards higher #technical and #environmental performance. ♻️🌱♻️ And one of the most exciting innovations in materials on display at this year's show was the "recyclable" ReRez bio-epoxy resin from @connoratech -- which can be collected from the surfboard production process (and even broken boards...) and turned into new products like fins and lots more. SSurf's own Michael Stewart had fun showing off some R&D fin samples from @futuresfins made from ReRez resin waste ~~ which just shows that the #Future is already here ! #deepbluelife

#MondayDeficiency edition: Never seems like ever we get quite enough Vitamin #Sea... but recent medical studies show that most surfers should probably be pumping up their daily dose of #VitaminC - if they want to make the most out of their time in the #DeepBlue ocean 🏄🏽 Experts over at @webmd say that vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients, and benefits may include: stress reduction, protection against immune system deficiencies & cancer, cardiovascular disease, #eye disease, and even #skin wrinkling. ☀️👁 And best of all, high amounts of the magic "C" weed are present in all kinds great tasting greens like #Kale, Broccoli and #BrusselsSprouts - as well as all those #Fruits we all love like Oranges, Mangoes #Pineapple and #Papayas 🍊🍓🍍🍋 #DeepBlueLife

#Sunday Sessions - Rollin to the surf #OleSkool style in a fully restored VW 1965 single cab type 1 Van (flat bed), with a couple logs and few fishes ! 🚎🚎🚎 50 years on the road and counting - this rare surf wagon has no need for racks as your entire quiver (and then some) can just fit in the back, and the sides even fold down to make a stage for your favorite #band to #jam out on while you're camping out for the weekend. Why can't all surf gear be as durable and useful as this?? 🎸🎺⛰⛺️ Too bad we had to give this #BabyBlue back to our buddy Peter afterwards, but he's thinking about selling it...so maybe SSurf needs a #Company car for doing all those #WasteToWaves styrofoam collection drives?! ♻️♻️♻️ Should we do a @Kickstarter ?

Big Wave specialist and #Mavericks Champ @chrisbertish ~ dropped all of us into the pit of the #BlueMind6 conference as MC this morning, just steps from the sand, salt and surf of #Asilomar Beach. 🌊🌊🌊 The first set of speakers have all focused on the importance of #PLAY in the structural cognitive development in our brains (from early childhood, all the way through late childhood, aka.whatever age you are now...). Turns out that "play" is some of the most important "work" everybody needs to do make the world a better place ~ so we can't wait to do our homework with a sunset session right out front! 📝🏄🏽🌊 #deepbluelife @wallacejnichols @slowcoast.official

Not sure why...but our @boardroomshow booth always seems to get really #crowded when ambassador #TomCurren @curfuffle stops by to check out what we are up to next 👨‍👨‍👦‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👩‍👩‍👦. And among our latest & greatest is the #Collab with pals @ReCork - to produce the #27 traction pad made from 100% recycled wine corks (looking at you fans of @headhighwines 🍷🍷🍷. Turns out that it takes more time than anybody ever expected to invent an entirely new way to make surf traction technically better (and more sustainable) ~ but the R&D process is in full effect, and pads should be hitting retail shops in late Summer or early Fall. Which still gives #TestPilot Tom a chance to try out the latest samples (on a new ECOBOARD from @cisurfboards @mcsurfboards ?? ) to give us his 2 cents before the final molds are produced. Pretty sure his feedback will be worth it's weight in 💰💰💰! #deepbluelife #MakingWaffles
