This video is from a couple months back but nice to watch after a hectic Monday. Earlier this year Koa Smith submitted this footage from an epic wave he caught in Skeleton Bay, Namibia. The clip landed him the $20,000 top prize in Surfline’s GoPro of the World contest. When I watch it I can’t help but think about the amazing planet we live on. Watch the video below (slow-mo first and then the original clip).
We’re teaming up with Stickerobot Custom Stickers to run a fun little project. They’ve been a supporter of Booooooom for a long time and have made us a ton of custom printed stickers over the years. We’ve made clear stickers and die cut ones but I’ve kept the actual designs really plain. This is where you guys come in.
This is a call to all you artists and illustrators out there to design us a 3″ x 3″ sticker. It can be whatever you want it just needs to have the word “Booooooom” somewhere in it. This doesn’t necessarily mean we just want you to draw a bunch of cool looking letters, you could though. But you could also draw a dinosaur playing a saxophone at sunset and then in really small letters at the bottom write the word Booooooom. Make whatever you want, in your own style.
You can submit your design by leaving a comment on this post and attaching a small JPG (less than 1 mb) image of your design. Keep a high resolution or vector version of your work handy in case yours is chosen.
We will pick 3 winners and each of you will get 500 stickers of your own design sent to you! We will also get these stickers made for us and the back print on the stickers will have information about you (your name, website, etc) so when we give them to people we will essentially be handing someone your business card! We will not be selling the stickers that you create, this is stuff that we want to be able to give away to people.
I’m excited to see what you guys come up with. Feel free to submit as many designs as you want. The submission period ends November 14th.
Holden and Impossible have joined forces with Vice to create a photo project called “Timeless in an Instant”. Photographers are invited to submit analog instant images for a chance to win the opportunity to be included in four worldwide Holden x Impossible exhibitions. The shows will feature ten renown analog photographers and the grand prize winner will be announced June 1.

Here are the finalists in our “Shoot The Show” contest with Nikon! It was really tough but I have narrowed it down to 20 submissions. Your voting will decide who wins the camera from Nikon, and anyone who casts a vote will be eligible for a Booooooom prize pack as well!
So take a look and cast your vote!

Ok, I can’t believe I’m about to do what I’m about to do.
As you are all aware, the 2010 Olympics begin here in Vancouver this week, and if you live here, you know how difficult it has been to get tickets. Well my friends, I have tickets. And not just any tickets. I have a pair of tickets to the 2010 Olympics Men’s Hockey Semi-Finals courtesy of BC Hydro’s Power Smart Village (opens February 10th).
Hockey is the only event I really care about and I would gladly do some very bad things to go to any of the Olympic hockey games, but I’ve decided to give these tickets to you instead.
Want to win them?
