Cold but empty- looks amazing. Photos are by Fujio and the lucky gent in them is Kenichi Miyashita, all via Mackie. In case you didn't see the previous post's comments, this may be worth a look:
A number of organizations (Rockstar, Global Fund for Women, Sheshday, Real Surf Trips, Win4Causes) are working together to support a new surfing movie being filmed starring world class surfers Sofia Mulanovich, Ornella Pellizzari, Simone Zea, and Paige Hareb. We are doing a charity auction ending this Sunday your blog readers may be interested in. It's an all expense paid trip to Playa Negra, Costa Rica for a week of the best surfing and involvement in the movie and meet the women.
Do let me know if you would be able to help spread the word for this on your blog and if you need any more information.
The auction is here: http://lastclck.com/surf1
It's a sweet deal and currently less than 50 cents.

This is currently sitting in my front room, en route to Hawaii. It's a truly amazing piece of work, total surfboard design madness. About 6'3", stringerless EPS and carbon fibre flextail. Huge thanks to Chris for being stoked enough to order one and to Mick for making it. I'm thoroughly happy to be able to sit and stare at it for another week or so, but I want one already- maybe it's time to sort out some overtime?

"The more I thought about it and talked to Alby, the more I realised that the spirit of Morning of the Earth hasn’t really changed — it was about people enjoying an activity that interacts with nature, which as surfers, we still do today. One could look at all the negatives associated with the modern activity, or we go about trying to make something that reflects the positives. I still find myself kicking out of waves stoked — clear of thought, pondering the beauty and freedom our pursuit affords us."
Spirit Of Akasha is the new film project from Albie Falzon and Andrew Kidman, and looks quite spectacular, a deserving descendant of 'Morning Of The Earth'. Check the site, and we'll definitely let you know things like release dates when they are announced. It's a sad bit of synchronicity that MP should pass away while this was being finished, but it can only add to the mans amazing legacy.
