Fresh Brand You Should Know: SLVDR



Born in California, influenced by the world, SLVDR represents a global community with its threads that are, ironically, far from common. SLVDR is firmly rooted in the Common Thread Project (CTP), a program that helps to donate action sports gear to deserving youth around the world and in their local community. The SLVDR “modern luxury” aesthetic is pure class; the mission pure stoke. SLVDR.

San Clemente Surf Team Update…SCHS vs. Laguna Beach Contest


Swell’s local San Clemente Surf Team is back in action; once again laying down mad style points. Below is a quick update from Coach:

Tuesday morning saw the SCHS surf team waking up to rainy dreary conditions.   As soon as the call was made to run the event the rain disappeared and 2-3 foot peaky T-street appeared before the competitors.  Everyone bundled up on the beach watching the action saw San Clemente claim its first win of the season over Laguna Beach High School 102-66.  It was a great bounce back victory for the Tritons.  Stellar performances were turned in by Jonah Carter, Levi Gregory, Josh Mostow, and Eli Gillis who all placed first in there heats.  Up next for the Tritons will be Newport Harbor next Tuesday morning at 56th Street.
