The 6th instalment of The San Diego Studies (a series of shorts that collapse time to highlight the unobservable aspects of the city filmmaker Cy Kuckenbaker lives and works – previously featured here and here), is beautifully simple. After suffering a shoulder injuriy, Kuckenbaker started flying kites at the beach in lieu of surfing or swimming. Unlike the other shorts in the series, this video is just Kuckenbaker, his kites, and a glimpse of Tijuana in the background. Check out “20 Minutes of Kite Flying Time Collapsed” below!
File this under W-T-F. Flip in, flip out on a Penny board? This part is actually kinda mind blowing, and Manolo Robles makes it all look so easy.

While working on her Master’s Degree at the School of Visual Arts, New York-based art director Michelle Poler was broadly instructed to do one thing every day for 100 days. Taking her assignment to the next level, Poler created the 100 Days Without Fear project.
Poler is now 84 Days in, has since graduated, and is documenting herself facing all kinds of fears from quitting her job and posing nude for a life drawing class, to walking around New York blindfolded. See more images and some video clips from Poler’s inspiring project below!
This is not CGI, DC Shoes just released a ridiculous video of Robbie “Maddo” Maddison riding a modified motorbike into a wave at Teahupo’o. Not sure how the surf community will feel about Tahiti’s iconic waves being charged by a guy in motocross gear, the part where he rips past some people paddling just makes it all seem so obnoxious. While it’s hard to deny its brilliance from a design standpoint, this video will surely be divisive.
