AUDITORIUM WITH JEFF LEVINGSTON

For this edition of Auditorium, photographer Jeff Levingston sent us some photos that depict surfing in a raw and unrefined state, and capture the beauty of the ocean. And he had this to say for his music choice, “I guess I really like English rock, and The Yardbirds are pretty cruisy, almost surf rock, if you will. Rock bands always seem a bit more legitimate and personal than electronic/dj music.  So it always seems fitting for surf photography.” Jeff Levingston x The Yardbirds. Enjoy!

TINY HOMES – BOOK REVIEW

Skye Nacel does review of the book Tiny Homes by Lloyd Kahn and shows us how it reminds him of “a life closer to the water.”

“Cutting down our footprint and getting back to the simple life can get all of us more water time and more flexibility which, here in fickle New England, can mean the difference of surfing a swell or hearing about it after it’s gone.”
