All good ideas start with Cappuccino!

Had a great couple of days brand building with Ali. Sometimes getting away from your desk
and a change of scene can do wonders. We found the local organic granny cafe a perfect place
to plot global domination. Here's to dreams ..

A take on a classic

With a take on Classic Californian Surf Style, this shoot in Men's File Issue 3 seems to
hit the modern nail on the head. I'm Inspired by the elegance and simplicity, even the subtle
sexiness of near innocence. The mid length shorts look modern too.

Loving the hand drawn fantastical works of Khanage. I met Kristine recently and was immediately wisked off into a world of folk legend and inspiration.

This year Khanage will be involved in a big recycling project to collect old/broken surfboards, keep them off the dumps and give them a new lease of life by turning them into pieces of art.

Illustrating them with collected tales of the sea and the coastline. Highlighting places of interest, lost history and generally encouraging people to stop watching TV and keep talking/reading/telling tales!

Refined to the Tip

What better way to tie up your Riz Boardshorts than
with a classic Polka Dot cord.

(Flat, light weight, quick drying polyester cord with metal tips.)

We dream of being together, we dream of being alone. We want what we don't have and we want more than we need.

We dream of looking perfect, yet like
imperfections. We seek and we return, our comfort zones confirmed.

We dream of beaches though live in cities. We want everything but secretly nothing.

We push for big ideas yet remember the little things. We dream..

Surf-Show 2010

We hit the road and attended our first surf-show down in Bristol the other week.
We knocked up a little shack and hung our shorts out to swing in delight at
their first proper outing.
Thanks to everyone who popped by and to the new peeps we met along the way.
