The Ezekiel Surf Club paid SWELL a visit after filming their Summer 2013 lookbook down at the harbor. The boys were dripping wet from testing new trunks styles on their hand-shaped single fins. To celebrate the launch, they’re hooking up one lucky fan with a $200 shopping spree. Enter Win here today only for Win It Wednesday.
We asked Surf Captain Kyle Kennelly to sum up the inspo behind the reinvented Ezekiel Summer Line, “[It’s based on] a time when surfing was considered a passion, an escape for a select subculture of society to get away from their humanly struggles and envelope themselves blissfully within nature, to harness the kinetic energy of gently rolling swells as they approach a distinctly and organically created shoreline and elegantly dance upon the oceans surface with their friends.”
Get behind the scenes and shop the summer steeze here.
The ceremonial cava has been drank, Chief Druku has given his blessings, and the reef has claimed its first bit of flesh at the 2013 Volcom Fiji Pro.
At the opening ceremonies all the boys sported the Volcom Stonepede button up shirt, while paying respect to the heart shaped island they call home during the 11 day dream contest.
With south swells marching up the coast, the warm waters of summer brings endless surf days to show off your favorite new SWELL beach clothes.
Here’s 5 fail-free tips to keep in mind when hitting the hot sand this summer.
1. SUNGLASSES STYLE
The Good: Contemporary frame designs like cat-eye, and acetate wayfarers are trending from Epokhe and RAEN
The Bad: Plastic poser brands stand out like a sore on your lip
The Ugly: Resting sunnies on your neck screams “i’m a jock!” and leaves goofy redneck stripe tan
2. SURF STYLE
The Good: New-school guys like Craike and Dion add flare with a surf tee or even a hula shirt
The Bad: Keep your style simple, matching is tolerable, but easy on the accessories
The Ugly: In case of farmer tan, apply sunscreen to burn areas and leave pale spots exposed to catch up (sorry moms)
3. WETSUIT STYLE
The Good: Peddling in a wetsuit is ok, but NEVER wear with shoes, sunglasses, etc. Shop Racks
The Bad: Never jump the pier with your leash attached, especially longboarders
The Ugly: Publicly “credit-carding” aka board-to-groin, especially while wearing gloves, booties, shirt & wetty.
4. SANDAL STYLE
The Good: The Fanning Reef Sandals emergency bottle opener makes you the life of the beach party
The Bad: Give the bottle a coutesy wipe in case you stepped in some tar…or worse
The Ugly: Chicks aren’t impressed toothless beer drinkers
5. GOPRO STYLE
The Good: Taking “selfies” is not a crime while shredding with a GoPro
The Bad: Taking “selfies” anywhere else
The Ugly: Mounting GoPro’s on every possible surface, and fruit booting the boardwalk
