The Bodysurfer’s Toolkit



Woodshed Films premiered Come Hell or High Water, Keith Malloy’s new bodysurf film, when we were in New York this month. Rad.

Bodysurfing is something we wholeheartedly endorse — keeps you fit, keeps you wet, keeps you from getting one-dimensional, Saran-wrapped to your standard thruster.

Our friends at Nixon and Patagonia share the vision, which is why they’re big backers of Keith and his film — and they want to get you out into the shorebreak, no boards attached.


YOUR PROJECT: Dig up or go shoot your best shorebreak photo — of you or by you, in the tube, whatever, just no surfboards — and email it to stuart (at) by Friday, October 7.


YOUR COMPENSATION: Our favorite shorepound photo gets the complete bodysurfer’s toolkit:

    1 Nixon Housing Watch, a digital tide watch pre-programmed with 200 beach locations worldwide
    1 Come Hell or Highwater movie poster, signed by both Keith Malloy and Mark Cunningham
    1 Pair Da Fin Fins, signed and customized by Mark Cunningham
    1 Enjoy Handplane, customized and refurbished completely from recycled materials
    1 Seapod Handplane Bag made with vintage and repurposed fabric


The film is now making its way up the West Coast on a screening tour (next one this Thursday, September 29 at the Lido Theatre in Newport Beach, CA — doors at 7:15, film rolls at 7:45). It’s recommended viewing for all cinephiles and those with salt in the veins. And for everyone else, ditch the board, grab a camera, and go surf the natural way. CLICK.


The Nixon Housing Watch — don’t put on fins without one.
