Ezekiel Surf Club members Harrison Hewitt, Michael Cukr, and Kyle Kennelly spotted indications of some playful swell headed towards Hawaii and hopped over to the beautiful islands to catch some lovely late season surf. There was no shortage of good times, from shore to shore these gentlemen caravanned around in a VW campervan pulling off the side of the road at the sight of enticing looking waves. They were often greeted with near empty line ups. Although they had a general sense of where they were surfing, due to their chance based spot selection, they often were not sure of the names of the waves they were surfing. This blissful obliviousness added a layer of adventure to a stretch of coastline that is usually known for being rather revealed. Endowed with seemingly endless oceanic resources, there were plenty of waves to go around making it easy to share slides with a smile. Needless to say, the aloha spirit was at an all time high. Harrison wielded his 7’0” single fin blade shaped by Tanner Barrett while Kyle took to his trusty 7’0” Fineline MP displacement hull shaped by Brian Hilbers often opting out of the use of his center fin.

Spring time in sunny Southern California where the water's warm and the waves are pleasant. There's nothing quite like taking a couple of days off from the hustle and bustle of life to relax on the beachside and share some waves with your friends. Ezekiel Surf Club members Michael Cukr, Kip Armstrong, and Kyle Kennelly cruised around in search of some swell and found some nice little waves lurking along the coastline of San Diego and Orange County. Here Kip and Kyle traded off between a few boards: 6'4" BMT Displacement Hull, 7' Liddle Death Model, and a 9'5" Dano Nose Glider.

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."
We just released the feature video for the trip. Follow Callum and Ellie as they wander martian landscapes and black sand beaches across the rugged island country known as Iceland.

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.
