Firmly opposed to simply walking, this Kauai native brings in the new day with a well-practiced strut. The effortless style and flow causes everyone around to stop what they’re doing and just watch. This is a gait that says “you’re welcome.”
Kauai Chicken Shows Us How It’s Done
Three—Board Quiver Contains Foamy
If ever faced with the “pick three boards forever” edict, these would probably make the cut. The 9’4″ pintail log for when it’s small, the 5’4″ mini-Simmons for when it’s firing, and the previously-undervalued 7′ foamy for everything in between.
iPhone Water Housing Changes The Game
The ability to take photos and video from the lineup is here. Follow @studio_sloan on Instagram for the most recent aquatic adventures. This shot is from our spectacular winter, which shows no sign of slowing.
Constant Travel Leaves Little Time For Craft
While arguably cute in a self-referential way, this type experiment serves as a reminder that in order to do things well, they can’t be done in a hurry. And they definitely can’t be done on a plane as it accelerates down the runway.
Corner Office Prints Inspire And Bemuse
Available now at Electricity Showroom, this series of screenprinted posters is a collaboration with Chad Rea. Perfect for one’s bedroom, workshop, or meeting room.
Afternoon Light Does Sweet Thing On Wall
Between appointments, the sun is found dancing with puddles, plants, and half-drawn blinds, eventually making its way to our ever-appreciative wall.
Allure Of Pacific Proves Too, Well, Alluring
It’s official: Family Sloan has made it from Amsterdam to Los Angeles. While the quality levels of both cheese and public typography have taken a startling dive, constant sun and really good surf are making up for it. Most days will be spent at Media Arts Lab for the foreseeable future, so apologies if email responses are mad late.
Skeleton Gets Ride Of His Or Her Life
In a front-yard Halloween setup masterminded by Taj, one unidentified skeleton can be seen here pulling in backside on an incomplete alaia blank. Neighbors? Impressed.
Chair Makes Break For Pavement, Fails
In what can only be described as an “optimistic” move, this Vlieland-based chair attempted to “see what it was like” on the bike path, and didn’t quite make it.
Summer Loses Epic Battle With Autumn
After several months of valiant beaming and joy-making, summer has finally fallen to the dark forces of Fall. Those thrilled about the loss include rain pants and Mr. Burns.
Daughter Under Impression That She Is Controlling Bike
Despite her inability to walk or form complete sentences, our daughter is convinced that she is in control of the bike, as evidenced by repeated bell ringing, yelling at pedestrians, and attempts to remove our hands from the handlebars.

Sail 2010 Arrives, Brings Impressiveness Along
Every five years for the past forty, some of the tallest (and oldest) sailing ships in the world occupy Amsterdam’s waters for the Sail festival. Needless to say, we’ve been looking forward to this. Beautiful, functional design everywhere.
Still No Surf Quite This Good In The Netherlands
I’ve heard that “top men” are working on it, but to date the North Sea has failed to produce surf quite like this. Plans to remove the United Kingdom –which would give us exposure to Atlantic swell– are being discussed. Watch this space for updates.
