Begin Again. Short Film By John John Florence

Mom John must be proud. Her prodigal sons have added film making to their bag of tricks that range from Triple Crown title, to big wave chargers, WCT rookie of the year, and even pro skaters.

This film is bittersweet for John John fans after he withdrew from the Billabong Rio Pro to nurse his nagging ankle injury. Thank you Florence bros, for giving us our fix of this next level S#IT!

As Seen On: Hawaii 5-0

hawaii

In last nights episode of Hawaii 5-0, the aloha loving Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly rocked the RVCA Fern & Burn Shirt in every scene. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, “Chin” is a local-boy cop with a shoot first mentality and an appetite for Kamekona’s shrimp truck.

Watch Hawaii 5-0 Mondays at 10 pm on CBS to see Chin’s weekly aloha shirt styles. Check out SWELL’s Aloha Friday Pinterest Board for dozens of fresh floral shirts, shorts, shoes and more.

Photo Tip Of The Week: Jason Naudé Billabong Lensman Explains How To Shoot Surf In Speed Blur

Jason naude

“When shooting surfing, try not to get stuck in one style like only trying to get crisp clean shots. Sometimes blurry shots can look way more interesting if done correctly. For the shot of Nate Zoller I closed my aperture down to I think like F. 18 and slowed my shutter speed down to something like a tenth of a second and then followed Nate as he rode the wave to keep him in focus but to allow the wave to appear like it was moving.” -Jason Naudé
