Steven Steezy Sawyer is an incredibly talented young guy. Whether strumming the strings with making soulful tunes, winning national longboard titles or coming up against the best in the world at the Jbay Open, he always impresses. He is one of my favorite guys to watch on the longboard and now he is learning the craft of making surfboards from his legend, old man, Des Sawyer. Have a watch, get to know Steezy better and help a young gun out by sharing this post!
This is a short clip of Steezy, jamming music, shaping boards, surfing and talking about 2016’s festivities.

Don’t we all wish we could earn a living travelling the globe doing what we love? Cape Town surfer, Brendon Gibbens, is living the dream as he gets paid to free surf and film surf movies. The Cape native finds himself based out of California these days and spends a lot of time on the road shooting for big wigs like, Kai Neville, but he still comes home for a visit now and then. This video was shot while home recently and the photo by Alan van Gysen at a Cape, big tube, beachy!
Ok, so the video is actually an Ian Walsh project, but to be fair, Grant Twig Baker and Frank Solomon, the South African chargers, are rather prominent. The video was shot by surf cinematographer, star, Taylor Steele, and funded by Hullet Packard, hence the Hollywood feel. The boys charge some rather perfect looking, but extremely heavy waves up the West Coast.
