 SWELL TEAM MIKE MORRISSEY

Surfing’s definitely got its host of characters. Some funny, some lame, but mostly they’re just guys who are good at using their persona to hide their lack of true talent–or commitment. Mike Morrissey however is one of the exceptions. As the first professional athlete in all three board sports, he can legitimately claim the FTW attitude. Not that he’s an a-hole about it or anything; it’s just that he so effing good at whatever he tries he knows life is always going to pull through. Read more about Mike and the rest of our pro riders at our new TEAM section.

Glamour. Fame. Fashion. It’s all in a day’s work for a professional stylist. But to make a name—and a living—in this game takes way more than a love of playing dress-up. Stylists must have expert knowledge in a wide range of fields: Fashion, hair, makeup, design, photography, artistry, architecture, lighting—you get the idea. But it’s the stylists at the top of their game who know how to mix the angles and emotions of each to sell a story the masses want to copy. As part of Swell’s new STYLE section we’ll take you deep inside the crazy beautiful lives of the industry’s hottest young stylists, as well as give you the once-in-a-lifetime chance to launch your own career. For our debut we profiled team KDZB, two amazing talents who have electrified fashion editorials on both coasts and who are igniting an inferno of new trends in beach couture.
