SWELL’s best surf brands convened on another party wave bender at our local neck-breaking shorey in honor of the new American themed beach gear cranking on SWELL. Special thanks to Kalani Robb and the Catchsurf crew, Globe, Roark, O’neill and Volcom. Film: Lugo

MILE 43: Gorda Fuel Station

MILE 49: Sand Dollar Beach
The most consistent sandbar set-up in Big Sur, Sand Dollar offers up tons of rippable empty peaks just below Plasket Creek Campground. A day pass runs ya $15 these days, but it grants you access to every Ca park for 24 hrs. The Campsite is an epic place to pitch a tent among the redwoods,backpackers, Cal Poly students, and all kinds of road trippers. (more…)
Itching for a road trip, the boys loaded the sketchy old SWELL van with the newest summer gear to crash test the goods and go absolutely ham ion the 90 mi coastline called Big Sur, Ca. Enjoy the edit, get the gear and stay tuned for 6 more stories this week about the dude cruise going down in the books!
