Get a good look. Stab Mag recently presented their top sunglass pics for spring, and one just so happens to be a favorite of ours as well. Dragon’s retro Wormser (seen here in red) had been a major contender since we brought it in 5 MONTHS AGO! Don’t even try to fade us. Our trend-spotting talent is the stuff of legends.

Huge, huge congratulations are in order for our contest winner Margo D. of Ada, Michigan. The sun and good fortune was shining on her the day we randomly selected her name from hundreds of thousands of entires. A $500 Swell gift certificate and immense bragging rights are now all hers. Seen here this past summer with her dog Harley, Margo shows that real water girls don’t necessarily have to live close to the ocean. Way to go M.D., we salute you.

You can forget about killer robots taking over the world. Pretty soon we’ll all be at the mercy of nerds. (But then again, they might figure out how to make killer robots, so…) Mike Sheldrake is a prime example of a geek gone wild. By utilizing an advanced form of math in conjunction with aerospace design and a specialized programming language, Mike has developed several prototypes of cardboard core surfboards. We’d like to say more, but trying to explain it gave us a headache. Surfer Mag has full details.
