“Do these things work?”

I looked around, surprised. I hadn’t realized that he was talking to me. I looked some more: Tall, teal eyes, nice kicks. He glanced at my phone.

“Oh,” I said. Mobile boarding pass. Right. “Yeah, it should.”

“Okay,” he said, adding, “I don’t fly very much.”

I asked him where he was from, where he was headed.

Seattle (it’s not always rainy), Seattle (he was just visiting his brother)

“Are you flying directly?” I asked.

“I wish. Through San Francisco.”   Continue reading

Super 8 D.R. from Marine Layer

Pretty soon, Dane is probably going to cut out those pesky middlemen (directors, editors) and just make killer surf movies all by his lonesome:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Social Surfers

A tsunami advisory goes out for the entire Pacific Ocean.  On the East Coast of the United States, Facebook explodes with status updates.  At 9:56 a.m. Hawaii time, a surfer writes, “Sitting in Hawaii waiting for the END OF THE WORLD!”  At 2:57 p.m. Eastern time, a surfer in New York City reads it.  Twenty-one minutes later, this pattern repeats.  Multiply this activity by x: Twitter is veritably vibrating.

Dane’s Van

I think Marine Layer hit a new level of awesomeness yesterday when Dane Reynolds posted the following:

3 Easy Steps for Obtaining Charlie Brown’s Time Machine (My Van)

1. Be the FIRST one to SNAPPER HILL PARKING LOT

2. KEYS ARE INSIDE.  HOP IN.  Turn the key.  Figure out the column shift.

3. Drive off like a BANDIT.

NO STRINGS ATTACHED

DRIVE SAFE

This was followed (20 minutes later) by a post stating that the van was taken, “Thanks for lookin.”  An hour or so after that, an absurd video appeared of some guy scoping out the van and then, amazingly, driving it away!  (albeit not like a bandit)

Check it out.

Quiksilver’s Cypher Vision

I picked this up from Morning in The Moonlight and, I have to say, I agree with Willy’s assessment that it’s pretty “UH-mazing.”  Definitely watch through the credits for Dane playing shark guitar…

Dane Reynolds’ Trashed Quiver on Marine Layer

This is simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking… all of those beautiful boards rendered- well, let’s face it- repugnant.  Dane Reynolds must be the most forgiving guy in the world.
