Clean Action

Tim Elder of "Eldos Audio: Fuck Sound" fame has been blogging his darkroomed and scanned fotos of NYC on Clean Action. It's only a matter of time until a foto of Bill Cunningham 'peepin Bergdorf game' shows up.  Homeboy spent his teen years in Midtown, has been accused of 'growing beards in Harlem' and seen more 'Salt and Peppers Shakedowns' than he'd like to admit. GRUFF RESPECT!

When It's In Your Heart

The Professor is back on 'the Coast' as they say on Madison Ave, fighting the evil forces of Gloomland with realness in his heart! The new HYDRODYNAMICA site is live for those wishing to brush up on whats-up. The Warren Bolster foto below is in the 'Lis Fish' section and is one of my all-time favorites, truly capturing the joy and excitement of catching a wave. Recognize that smile?

Inna pre-vegan era or did he just come from an ill steak and ice cream lunch!?!? Serious speed in the last frame, there was a guy on the shoulder who pulled back because Simmons was deeper.

"Side-Busting Your Future Self"

Professor Earl Oldstyle heading downtown to sidebust his future self and disclose Hydrodynamica test-pilot research on 'planing totems' to an inspired audience. Although RK was caught claming/sharing his fondness for NYC in a recent Surfers Journal piece, he keeps it real on the subway in closed-toe attire and reminds us of getting into supermodels on Park Ave, certain situations on St. Marks Place and DJ Premier's apartment.Tuff Respect to the Teachers of Gruff Respect!

Professor R. E. Oldstyle chuning the audience on paipo/planing legend Val Ching. (Look for an upcoming article in the Surfers Journal by Cher Pendo on the aforementioned ohana-man VC!)
