    ep. #46 - Rob Machado - New Board, New Film, New Festival.

    ‘My quiver is a 5’2 and a 7’0, and there’s nothing in-between…’
    Rob watches himself surfing the Seaside and Beyond, his new LFT shape (on video in the show notes for this episode), and recognizes he occupies a strange space on the surfboard design spectrum.
    Around 5’6 and shorter, and 7’0 and longer… nothing inbeetween. And barely anything between 5’2 and 5’6. Mostly just a 5’2 (Helium Seaside and a 7’0 (LFT Seaside and Beyond).
    He pontificates further in this new episode of The Wire Podcast, discussing his new board and his new film and his new music festival.

    ep. #44 - From Kelp Forest to Coastal Rain Forest – Kevin Whilden has Solutions to Climate Change.

    ep. #44 - From Kelp Forest to Coastal Rain Forest – Kevin Whilden has Solutions to Climate Change.

    Kevin Whilden is a permafrost geologist who as a child collected rocks everywhere he went whether playground or Yellowstone Hot Springs or Catalina Island and even Antarctica in 1995 when he was a Graduate Student student studying Periglacial Geomophology (WTF?).
    “Look, I like rocks” he says “because they tell a story that’s interesting. Geologists are essentially crime scene investigators.. rocks and fossils tell a story of the past in a way that helps us envision the future.”
    His curious obsession with rocks is something he suspects his son might be inheriting, saying “Today my son steals rocks from the neighbors yard here in South Bay.“
    It’s here in South Bay just up the road from El Porto and Manhattan Beach, the Southern Californian Beach Breaks where he surfs daily, that he helms Sustainable Surf with his partner Michael Stewart.

    ep. # 43 - Firewire History + Scoring Barra w / Chuy Reyna

    Chuy Reyna is the Man in the Demo Van - he runs the demo program in California but also does much more, often pushing 'the button'; Firewire speak that translates to: 'Chuy says the board is perfect and we need to release it to surf shops everywhere.'

    ep. #42 - Ben Skinner is a Purveyor of Fine Vibes and Exceptional Surfboards

    ep. #42 - Ben Skinner is a Purveyor of Fine Vibes and Exceptional Surfboards

    Ben Skinner grew up with Jeremy Flores under the tutleage of Tom Carrol and Gary Elkerton.
    He was first sponsored by Quiksilver at eleven years old and was immediately put in to a grind by the “Sandhill Warrior” Rob Roland Smith, the legendary personal trainer employed by Quiksilver to train the brand’s most promising young athletes in the 90’s and early 00’s, nicknamed for his interest in making groms run up and down sand dunes until until they fell over.
    Ben at the time was surfing shortboards and he was ripping.
    He was traveling to Morocco and winning contests.
    And then he switched.
    “I just got so frustrated on small days in England in weak waves, I wanted to surf every single day, and longboards let me do that.“
    Born in England and raised inside pubs and breweries by parents in the hospitality industry, Ben is a 11X European Longboard Champion who, as a child, seems to have downplayed the wave quality in England.
    Today he rides incredible waves, some off them with barrels big enough to stand in, and all on surfboards 9 foot plus. You'll see video footage of these waves in the show notes of this episode.

    ep. #41 - Bleeding Ears and Three Wave Hold Downs. Timmy Reyes Presents 'Love Letter'.

    ep. #41 - Bleeding Ears and Three Wave Hold Downs. Timmy Reyes Presents 'Love Letter'.

    Timmy Reyes took a well deserved break this summer, staying away from his usual fare of thirty, forty, even fifty foot waves or bigger.
    On this episode of The Wire Podcast Timmy talks about the injuries he needed to rehab, and the sessions that make up Love Letter - Timmy's new feature film chronicling his sessions on the Hydroshort 'somewhere down south'.
    Always coy about the locations he scores, Timmy shares stories in this episode that will make you want to surf somewhere isolated. And cold.
