Tales from the Cobblestones is a podcast about San Onofre State Beach, a 3,000 acre state park located in Southern California. This unique area is home to some of the most famous waves in the country. This area is rich with interesting stories and conflicting issues. In this podcast I attempt to dig deep in some fun story telling, with a surfer's perspective.
"Live from the Cobblestones" is a show within the show. In this series we interview interesting individuals in the surf world: Artists, Surfers, Shapers, etc. With a focus on the lifestyle in Southern California and its influence on surf culture.
We hear from the great artist himself!

Cosmic Creek Surf Fest
Cosmic Creek is a Surf Festival at Salt Creek, that honors surfboards from the psychedelic age. Specifically 70's to 80's Surfboards. The era from the single fin into the twin fin era. A celebration of the creative ingenuity that was going on at the time. A collection of 60 different surfboards at the beach. A chance for compedetors to feel the thrills and sensations of these artistic Surf crafts. A chance to unlock the secrets from the past. A chance to shine in front of peers, family and friends. It's simply the best day at the beach. A Cosmic Surf Festival presented by Vissla, with live music, art, live shaping, bodysurf devision where the whole beach participates..(brought to you by DA FIN). They had a floating solar system out in the water, A pumping south swell...more music that went on through he night. It was a great day. Lots going down at Salt Creek. I got in early on the sign ups, so I had a blast and got a free shirt. I was curious about the history of the event so I reached out to Donald Brink and event organizer, Eric Diamond. Overall, the event was next level. Everyone had such a great day at the beach. Here is my conversation with Mr. Donald Brink and Eric Diamond. Enjoy! :-)
Todays guest is Mr. Ryan Hitzel. Ryan is a Laguna born creative that has had the pleasure of traveling the world and bringing back stories and ideas to his village by the sea. Ryan is from Laguna Beach, home to some of the biggest surf brands in the world. After traveling to Europe after high school he ended up working at Volcom which gave him an inside prospective of the Industry. After working in all types of creative fields, he found himself back in Laguna to start his own company, ROARK REVIVAL. With a roots approach and and understanding of who their core is...they have found themselves thriving in this post apocalypse (so called) Surf Industry. As brands move into a more lifestyle/outerwear approach, ROARK was already on their own path. Trailblazing, as a leader in the Outdoor/adventure/storytelling space. Ryan tells his story, plus how ROARK got started. Plus what adventures are to come! Please enjoy my conversation with the very talented... Mr. Ryan Hitzel :-)
