Matthew and Roxanne Ortiz (Vers Hawaii)

vers-hawaii-mural-01

Matt and Roxy Ortiz are a husband and wife artist duo, based in Honolulu, making work under the name Vers Hawaii. The couple are becoming known for their paintings of fantastical tree top villages that feature half-pipes and bowls.

I’m sure their work will remind most people of the Lost Boys hideout in Peter Pan but it actually reminds me of something a lot more obscure. Has anyone read Babar Visits Another Planet? I’m probably alone on this one but the floating houses on different levels, and the slides, totally make me think of it.

Take a look at more of their work below!

Gou Miyagi’s Video Part in Heroin Skateboards “Video Nasty” Has No Ollies In It.

Gou Miyagi’s part in Heroin’s “Video Nasty” is the best video part I’ve seen in years. Gou (pronounced “Go”) wanted to shoot it all in his hometown, Okinawa, Japan, and do his entire part without any ollies. There were parts of this where I actually laughed out loud, it’s so creative.

I posted Gou Miyagi’s part in “Overground Broadcasting” back in 2008, so you can see he’s been on a different wavelength for years.

Watch his fantastic video part below!

“Gone Tomorrow” by Ian Durkin

gonetomorrow-iandurkin

I should have never watched this, now I won’t be able to work for the rest of the day. Ian Durkin met up with Mr. Van Life Foster Huntington and, well, if you know who either of them are you, know what they did for the next ten days.

If anyone needs me I’ll be on Craigslist looking for camper vans. Watch the video below!

NikeSB x Poler: New York to Iceland w/ Alex Olson

NikeSB x Poler: NYC to Iceland w/ Alex Olson

It’s been incredible to see my friend Benji’s little brand Poler grow into a giant over the last few years. I get so many ideas for things I wanna do with Booooooom just from watching what he’s doing.

Benji and company have just announced a capsule collection with NikeSB (you can see here) and made a fun video featuring Alex Olson adventuring his way from New York City to Iceland’s backcountry.

Watch the video below (love the ending).
