Bodysurfing is something we wholeheartedly endorse -- keeps you fit, keeps you wet, keeps you from getting one-dimensional, Saran-wrapped to your standard thruster.
Our friends at Nixon and Patagonia share the vision, which is why they’re big backers of Keith and his film -- and they want to get you out into the shorebreak, no boards attached.
YOUR PROJECT: Dig up or go shoot your best shorebreak photo -- of you or by you, in the tube, whatever, just no surfboards -- and email it to stuart (at) surfingmagazine.com by Friday, October 7.YOUR COMPENSATION: Our favorite shorepound photo gets the complete bodysurfer’s toolkit:
1 Nixon Housing Watch, a digital tide watch pre-programmed with 200 beach locations worldwide
1 Come Hell or Highwater movie poster, signed by both Keith Malloy and Mark Cunningham
1 Pair Da Fin Fins, signed and customized by Mark Cunningham
1 Enjoy Handplane, customized and refurbished completely from recycled materials
1 Seapod Handplane Bag made with vintage and repurposed fabric
The film is now making its way up the West Coast on a screening tour (next one this Thursday, September 29 at the Lido Theatre in Newport Beach, CA -- doors at 7:15, film rolls at 7:45). It’s recommended viewing for all cinephiles and those with salt in the veins. And for everyone else, ditch the board, grab a camera, and go surf the natural way. CLICK.
