Hey boys and girls, here’s yer surf report for Tuesday, February 3rd. Well today was an absolute gorgeous beach day! Around 80 degrees without a breath of onshore wind. Sheets. Although the weather and wind were perfectly ideal for surfing, there was unfortunately very little surf. With the tide bottoming out midday the ocean resembled Lake Titicaca in the Orange County area. Complete doo-doo. You would’ve had to have been the size of a gecko to have any fun. The good news is it looks like we have some Kamchatka/Aleutian activity headed our way for the latter part of the week. Stay tuned.
Until next time- Shoots.

NIXON HAS STEPPED INTO THE AUDIO GAME, ENTER HEADPHONES!
Nixon offers three models, the above pictured studio-type “Master Blaster“, the “Nomadic” and of course ear buds called “Wire“. Notable features of Nixon headphones include stylee faux aluminum and leather construction (the leather is real on the “Master Blasters“), stealth volume pot and detachable cord, (good if you break it as it can be replaced). The “Nomadic” and “Wire” models feature an optional mic.
I tried the Master Blasters which retail at around 200 bucks. These Headphones are substantial and comfy. The thin inconspicuous wire, unlike some stayed nicely out of my way! The firm ear surrounding leather cans did a nice job keeping out unwanted ambient noise, allowing an environment in which great sound (with a little e.q. tweaking) was easily attained. For my taste, midrange boost was required to get to get things sounding nice and warm. Lastly, I was impressed with the volume control on the right can, this proved very convenient for quick volume tweaks.
Throw on a pair of Nixon Cans, and you’ll be rocking inside and out!
You know guys, Nair isn’t just for the ladies anymore. They make a great man-scaping product for the shoulders and back that will give you the confidence to pull off the big tank trend headed for spring/summer ’09. If you hadn’t heard, wifebeaters have taken a back seat to the retro stylings of the Beach Boys tank. Made to be worn loose and easy, you’ll soon know why it’s a fav of your dad, Magnum and Dog The Bounty Hunter. Featured above is the Troy tank from The Ryde, who is slated to be the supreme leader in the sleeveless look. We suggest pairing it with Quik’s 18.5″ Zephyr cord walkshorts for a leathal early ’80s vibe that gives your fans front row tickets to the gun show.
We should start with a word of warning: Before launching this video you should be sitting down and not planning to operate any heavy equipment for a while. What you’re about to view is a behind-the-scenes look at Hurley’s Fall 2009 photo shoot with Bar Rafaeli. As the number one downloaded video on MySpace last week, the clip went viral with 84,000 views in its first day. I’m pretty sure Bar gives a brief interview or says something, but I can’t recall because each time I’ve watched it I’ve been struck stupid with her wanton ways. Is it weird for a straight girl to call another girl a sex kitten? It probably is, but that’s the best definition I have for her. Hands down the hottest model-muse ever featured by a core surf brand, Bar’s campaign is sure to go down as the most successful in action sports’ history. We just hope the competition gets going with some fierce copy-cat action. (Check out Bar’s Windchester Coat and Low Rider jeans.)
