Jake Pollgreen has been perfecting his perspective in the Newport lineups for nearly a decade, so we demanded he immortalize his work on the best party favor of 2014… the Beeracuda. Here he enlightens us about surfing, shooting and life on the peninsula.
Meet Your Maker | SWELL x Burton Beeracuda Newport Lensman Jake Pollgreen Shoots the Coolest New Liquid Lunchbox
The smoke finally settled from the ourCaste 4th of July bender at their HQ in Newport, and its a wonder we didn’t end up in the clink. Kegs were cashed, Tacos taken down, fuses were lit, faces were licked and these babes wondered down wearing new Wonderland Sun Shades.
Thanks for the American memories (albeit fuzzy) fellas, and keep cranking out those signature styles sold at SWELL. Enjoy the evidence…

Ask any surfer what the name ‘Katin’ means to them and they’ll claim the K-man invented boardshorts in the 1950′s and started the renowned surf competition, the Katin Classic Pro/Am. These pioneers were born in Surfside, CA and in an era of out-sourcing, still keep their production at home in SoCal. Given their commitment to quality, American-made goods, we’re stoked to feature Katin in SWELL’s Locals Only collection.
