Hidden Summer Side



After a long walk in the forest, we finally find some empty waves.
Just between us, we had the luck to split a classic beach break.
This is what we love in surfing,
Just sharing a pristine moment
And having fun whatever the conditions.
Priceless.

Tomorrows Tulips Make Noise

We saw Tomorrows Tulips, Alex Knost and Ford Archbold band, last night in Paris. They played their hits and a few new songs and it was great. It sounds more noisey, more Lo-Fi, it sounds a bit like Sonic Youth when Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo makes their crazy shit, but it doesn't look like a pale copy of it, it's just good music !

They're still touring all over Europe, so if you can catch them on the road, you'd better do it.
More about it on their website :  experimentaljelly.com

King Khan & The Shrines - Bite my tongue

Yesterday we saw King Khan and the Shrines at Villette Sonique and it was great. The man is really inspired and inspiring. The gig began with a "la jeunesse emmerde le Front National", (the "Front National" is a french political group with bad tastes !), the tone was set. After that he talked about respect, respect the gays, respect the trans, the freaks, respect every differences with his famous sense of humor. It reminds us that respect is one of the most important thing. And in the water, we should think more about respect and open-mindedness on the beautiful moment we're having, sharing waves with people even with people we don't know.

Here's a few shots from yesterday and a clip of one of his track called "Bite my Tongue"

Richard Serra - The Matter of Time


Again, we went over Bilbao and visite the Guggenheim museum. And again, we had a look at Serra's work.
Richard Serra is an American artist and we do not know if he surfs or does skateboard. He is known for working with large-scale assemblies of sheet metalHis site-specific works challenge viewers perception of their bodies in relation to interior spaces and landscapes, and his work often encourages movement in and around his sculptures.

As you may know, Bilbao is one of the best town in Europe for skateboarding and surfing, and Serra's work is kind of a resonance of that, completely independent, but much more relevant than we have ever thought. Curves, structures, matter are just a call of playing with it. As surfers, we know how waves are transient, how nature is sensitive. 
It is more than ever true that it is a matter of time.
Skateboarding concrete is more binary : it's raining or it is not. But we note that skateboarders have the obstinacy of going for what they really want, and go for action at the right time. We remember about this pool, closed to Barcelona, partially torn down and buried under tons of rocks and sand. After more than twenty years, a small group of skaters digg it the place to skate again.

Dear Richard, we would love to skate your work and I guess that it is a matter of time.

Sons of Matoucat

surfin estate blog surf culutre skate skateboard matoucat jim vincent lemanceau arthur nelli music trend hossegor shop surfshop skateshop

Matoucat was one of the first skatepark in France and we were really lucky to grew up close to this incredible place. Imagine a large concrete snake with wood extensions and mini-ramps, (click here for an overview) driven by three passionates skaters / surfers which were really enthusiasts about sharing skateboarding.

When the Bones Brigade (Tony Hawk, Frankie Hill, Lance Mountain, Nicky Guerrero Stephane Larance, Seb Daurel...) and the  team Death Box (Peter Hewitt, Natas Kaupas...) passed by Matoucat in summer 1991, we were almost 12. It was major for us because we understood about the weightiness of US skateboarders, gave us lots of lines and tricks to do and confirm that Matoucat runners were soo right about this place.

These pictures are from spring 2001 when no one was managing the place, excepting us, trying to keep it clean and always negotiating with the proprietary and cops when it was too crowded. In order of appearance, Vincent, Fabien and Nadège tried to keep it alive as long as they can...

If you really want to know more about the place, you have 10 days yet to go to the Médiathèque of Cap-Ferret to discover the complete story of "la légende du Matoucat".

We would like to thanks Matoucat creators : Jim Lalondrelle, Jil Le Bon de la Pointe and Dom Coulon to share with us there skateboarding skill. So inspiring ... that we have never stop.

Fiona Walden - Cold Heart

Fiona Walden is French, super cool, singing like a proper english native. Sometimes, if you close your eyes, you might think that a men is singing, but it is not. In between Patti Smith, PJ Harvey or Janis Joplin she's surfing between electro, western and folk music. She's influenced by all that surrounds her, from countryside, to the ocean, from surfing to falling in love.  Here is her first official video clip but you could hear more from her if you have a look on her youtube. Her EP, Wanted, will be out on the 16th of March and you should get it !

Sandro - Paris // FW 15-16

                             Mathilde & Fiona waiting for the show

For the first time in brand history, Sandro Homme presented the Fall-Winter 2015-2016 collection during the Paris Fashion Week at le Palais de Tokyo. Ilan Chetrite, Creative Director of Sandro Homme, sets the scene for the new collection against a fragment of wall which could have been lifted straight from a Parisian street.
Flyers of punk groups introduce a strong visual element to this collection. The iconographic images, stitched with white thread, are positioned on both sides of the pieces. Kaki, military-inspired parkas over fitted black suits, carcoats and leathers comprise the first part of the collection, while high-waisted straight leg trousers are cut short at the ankle. White socks and oversize shoes complete the concrete jungle-ready look, a tribute to the Post - Punk / New Wave transitional period.

Daniel Johnston - Life In Vain

Daniel Johnston is a musician, singer, songwriter and a great artist. He is recognized as the "inventor" of the Lo-Fi music wich will influence Nirvana, Sonic Youth and many other great bands. He has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder but it is so moving to see him sing his songs. His lyrics are naives but so deep and true, that makes him one of the most important songwriter in the underground scene. Here is a live of "Life in Vain" first published on his record "FUN" in 1994.
