While both the boys and the girls on the team are totally rad, we couldn’t convince the dudes to pose in little bikinis… so today, I wanted to introduce you to some of my best friends: the sunkissed ladies of the UCSB Surf Team.

Healthy Date Shake Recipe
Our favorite Palm Spring attraction? Nope, not music festivals. Date shakes. Then music festivals. In that order preferably. Followed by another late night date shake fix. But it has come to our attention that music festivals are half a year away and dates shakes aren’t #1 on the doctor recommended list. So in the meantime, we’re getting a healthy fix of faux, but equally indulgent tasting, date shakes. Read on for the recipe… (more…)

In this week’s North Shore spotlight SWELL photographer Dane Grady gets a tour of a house as hard-core as the wave it overlooks. The Volcom compound is the premier for the who’s-who of the North Shore surf scene. Posting up in front of Pipeline is not all fun and games however.

The scene is an intense atmosphere filled with battle hardened pipe warriors. Legends of past and present of the place are engraved into the books of the surf world.  Pics and Words by Dane Grady  (more…)
