    this was a solid block of surfing footage!

    So, I’m very far from knowledgeable when it comes to this sport. I don’t know what tricks are more challenging, or what is technically good. I always figured “hey, a 360 on a surf board? very very hard.” I don’t really know much more than that!

    Input anyone? Also, anyone have favorite surf video, hopefully available online? I want to be a more informed fan of this beautiful sport.

The arm was designed in collaboration with developer Yotam Mann.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.
