The Bodysurfer’s Toolkit

- Shares



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.
