Weekend happenings//

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset+ Summer is officially in swing, and I decided to kick it off with a little bit of paddleboarding in the marina and a pitstop for Thrifty’s ice cream. I also proudly paraded my newly purchased vintage California flag, which I had been scouring sites and markets for for some time.

Other notes//

+ Anyone participate in International Surfing Day and Go Skateboarding Day on 6/20 & 6/21, respectively?

+ Happenings: The World Cup is still in full force, and Wimbledon is here.

+ If you’re interested: FIFA requirements for uniforms.

Have a good week!

FP_Pistache boards

Sometimes I feel that I am thisclose to converting this into a board blog, but I can’t help what I like. As long as there are beautiful boards being made, I shall keep swooning and showing them.

This latest quartet is part of Free People‘s FP Movement collaboration with Quiksilver, world class shapers, and Pistache. They cost a pretty penny (like a few months rent), but are undeniably striking. The first one is my favorite since it has an 80s surf vibe.

NTM_x_WC

 

It’s been a minute since Nike’s released a new NTM, but, appropriately so, the next series up for grabs is in the World Cup spirit. If you’re rooting for anyone outside of the USA, Brazil, France, or England, you’re kind of out of luck, but they’re nice to admire either way. Those red England tights would make nice yoga leggings any day, I think.

This is a PSA for Father’s Day, which is this upcoming Sunday should you be behind. If your dad is like mine, then the official World Cup match ball is the perfect gift. Easy. Done. This year’s model, the Brazuca, is super nice and has a unique texture unlike previous WC balls. It also feels considerably more solid than say the 2006 +Teamgeist. Get it here!

Also, here’s a bonus video from Paul Smith, who created his own limited edition World Cup ball. Sold out, unfortunately.
