This is the 11th year that the Bro Am has been running. Switchfoot knows how to throw an event. By far the biggest surf event, might be the biggest event ever to go down in Encinitas history.

LAVI Sunglasses Review

Prepare to be noticed if you wear these out and about. I went to go pick up a salad at Trader Joes and had a few people tell me they liked them a lot. They asked, “is that real wood”. I said “yup” and they were impressed. I don’t ever recall strangers telling me they like my sunglasses so I was feeling pretty cool after that.



The first stop of the 2015 AM SLAM brought to you by Sun Diego Board Shops was held at Tamarack. The day was solid with sun, waves a packed beach and stacked heats. What more could you ask for at a surf event. Check out all the photos shot by Toby Ogden Photography.

On Saturday, May 9, 2015, GROM clothing company held a free GROM PRIX surf series event for GROMS ages 16 and under at Trail Six, San Onofre State Beach. Over a hundred “Grompetitors” vied for top honors, tons of prizes, killer trophies, and bragging rights.

The waves were 2-4 feet and super fun, with sunshine, and good conditions all day. With the GROM VAN in full effect, the beach was buzzing with food, fun, family, and friends.

Bamboo the skateboarding dog was cruising around the Seaside beach parking lot today with his human friend. Bamboo has such a graceful style. He’s so calm and cool and collective. Where most dogs are spazzing out, Bamboo the dog has that more laid back approach and it makes for a super cool viewing experience.
