A few SWELL savages “followed the Fish” to LA Hard Summer Festival and Cut Snake basically blew out our eardrums and our minds. The DJ duo has been getting after it for over 10 years, since Paul & Leigh bought a mixer to pass the times during down days on the professional surf tour.

Since hooking up with Destructo, the Cut Snake boys are on a tear through the EDM tour,  rocking out in these SWELL summer styles.

Happy Days lie ahead for Ryan “Chachi” Craig, winner of the 9th annual Follow the Light Foundation Awards in memory of Larry “Flame” Moore. The 32 yr old Santa Cruz photog cracked the final 5 a few times since 2008 and now joins past winners club of legendary lensmen like Burkard, Glaser, Maasen and more.

The epic event was followed by a typical US Open Afterparty at the pope’s living room, the Surfing Magazine Oasis of insanity. Shots, see-throughs, cervezas and the eventual late night eats… Chachi killed it! (more…)
