This winter, three of the Ezekiel Surf Club members - Nick Maimone, Travis Harder, and Kyle Kennelly - took a break from the rapid velocity of life in the city and took to the countryside in search of serenity, surf, and speculation. Sometimes it can be difficult to hear yourself think in a metropolis, these gentlemen broke away from the grind in search of some headspace. This short by Michael Cukr documents their vacation. An inward self-discovery through the medium of wave riding, time spent trotting along rolling hills in search of silence and the organic sounds of the earth washing over.
"An intrinsic desire for disembarkation from the routine peaks the desire for change. A change of scenery, a change of perspective, a pause of responsibility, it seems imperative for psychological longevity. The gratitude felt for the proverbial new is a function of personal stagnation. Inspiration manifests itself over there; now, we just needed to hop in the car and go. The three of us gathered our quiver of surf crafts, our vessels for cognitive therapy, and hit the road. The urban life as a waterman gets to you after awhile, you need to be on the ocean, after all, it's where everything started yet it is still a place that seems as mysterious as the cosmos even after living lifetimes in and around it. The crisp salty air washes over the hillsides differently out there than it does in the city, unaltered by inorganic obstructions, where the physical waves hit the shoreline the metaphysical tide rushes onward and carries a frequency of tranquility. We need it."

EZSC's newest member, Nick Maimone is a young shaper, but after only a few years Nick's been carving out a name of his own under the wing of some of the best shapers in the world, such as Marc Andreini.
This new short by Paul Ferraris is a testimony to Nick's talents as a shaper. Surf Club member, Kyle Kennelly, collaborates with Nick on this project taking Nick's contemporary spin on the classic 1967 panel vee-bottom of surfing's Hot Generation. His New Moon longboard is an all around log shape influenced by mid to late sixties Australian designs similar to Nat Young's Magic Sam from 1966. Rolled bottom and pinched rails, this particular board has more of a pivot/noseride fin on it. The Sam is the board ridden by Schuyler Beecroft and is more similar to Young's '66 version, it has a rolled bottom with thin foil and a very forward placed Greenough flex style fin glassed on. Very turn and trim savvy log. The Hull ridden by Oakland based photographer and artist, Sean Howe, is your archetypical with its widepoint forward accompanied by a big flex fin. Rolled bottom thin foil and down rail/hard edge in the tail and a forward fin placement.

For our Holiday lookbook we decided to travel across the sea to a little rock in the middle of the ocean called Iceland. Iceland is a reminder of the massive, formative powers of nature with its volcanic black sand beaches and colossal glaciers, slowly cleaving deep valleys across the island.

This year's Life Rolls On "They Will Skate Again" at the Venice Skatepark was as inspirational as it gets. With over 100 adaptive wheelchair and amputee skaters making an appearance, this event keeps raising the bar on the Life Rolls On Mission Statement “To inspire infinite possibilities despite paralysis." The year over year growth in participation of both adaptive skaters and volunteers has been incredible to watch. With participants flying in from all around the globe, the sport is growing rapidly and we feel honored to be involved. Thank you to LRO’s founder and our friend Jesse Billauer for his continued inspiration and support of the paralysis & physically challenged community along with his amazing LRO staff and everyone who came out to make this day happen! We’d also like to thank our amazing and supportive sponsors Active Ride Shop, Society6, and the truly amazing and inspirational Box Wheelchair team.
