This summer, Dade Shields set out to capture Blair Conklin in this mini documentary called Unknown Future. It's obvious at about 10 seconds in that Dade is an incredibly talented filmmaker, and Blair an equally talented skimboarder. From his backyard at Tortuava to the sider down at Tenth Street to every other beach in south Laguna, Blair has a better understanding of Laguna's coves, cliffs, and beaches than just about anybody. And that's pretty darn evident throughout this clip. We can't wait to see what's next from either of these guys.
In our Summer 2014 Issue, we interviewed and reported on Tony Liuzzi's upcoming film entitled Shorebreak. It's a full-length documentary style film set to drop in the early months of 2015. With the support of nearly every major name in the industry, it's definitely got some notable interviews and the trailer has some sleek flow to get you amped.
Check out the trailer below to get hyped on the upcoming film. Also check out Tony on Instagram to stay up to date on the most recent news from Shorebreak.
Lucas Gomes was a huge help in making our most recent issue, Summer 2014, a huge success. He hooked us up with an interview with Leandro Azevedo, one of skimboarding's biggest Brazilian pros, and he wrote an awesome story about his recent trips to Chile, Mexico, and California. To add a bit more context and allure to his travels, we want to share with you this video he just dropped with the help of Skylar Wilson. The footage includes rides from both Wedge and Aliso, both of which are mentioned in his article about the trip. Pay special attention to the frontside wrap at 1:35. Moves like those are done after hours of practice and countless falls. It's definitely one to be appreciated.
