Feeling antsy? There’s nothing quite like hitting the road with an uncharted destination. Knowing that there will be waves along the way and adventures to be had, but not knowing the precise destinations is all part of the fun on a road trip. I recommend having a general idea of where to go based on swells. Map out a flexible route that allows time for exploring and kicking back at camp- whether that’s at a campground of a lodge of some sort. Wherever you go, remember: “There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.” – J. Kerouac

RVCA surf advocate, board shaper and Tomorrow’s Tulips band front-man Alex Knost has conceptualized and designed the second season of his signature apparel collection. He freesurfs around the world all year in search of inspiration for these custom tailored styles.
Enjoy as he expresses his style on a RVCA surf trip in Costa Rica
Alex Knost’s Spring 13 Line joins the elements of classic, vintage-inspired workwear, retro color combos and paisley prints for a feel that reflects his own wardrobe to a T. Alex has an affinity for secondhand charm, relaxed fit knits and muted color palettes that pop with brightness. Shop his RVCA looks here.
Keep an eye out for this coastal vagabond, as he can usually be seen in a very creepy taupe van, searching for a wedge on the outskirts of Newport Beach with his buddy Ford Archbold.
Beached Days -Volume 2 Release Party Hang with Surfing's Anti-Heros in Laguna Beach, Celebrating a Legit New Mag
It’s not your average surf mag. Beached Days is the backwards brain child of Mitch Abshere, founder of Captain Fin Co, and a brand ambassador for Electric, Stance, and Hurley. This second release looks at surfing’s anti-heroes like the Fletchers, Jay Adams, T.Sherms, Alex Knost and some crazy indie dudes you may have never heard of.
The FRUS TNOD (DONT SURF) edition was edited by SWELL’s own Nate Zoller, and the launch party is going down on his home turf in Laguna Beach on Friday 6-9pm. Our friends at Thalia Surf are hosting the mixer with free beer and local grinds. The mag is only published a couple times a year, so don’t miss out. 915 S Coast Hwy Laguna Beach, CA 92651 6-9pm, YEW!
Here’s a preview of the newest name in surf media: BEACHED DAYS
