From the inbox,
Here’s a pic of me engaging in obscene blissitudes, immersed within the pragmatic psychedelia of a fun and expansive Northern California wall, carving with my 5’7″ Hanel Quad fueled with the hand made owl wings of Marlin Bacon’s bamboo fins. I love surfing my Hanel quad and twinny in ways which transcend language, just as the experience of surfing – the art of surfing as opposed to the competitive idea of the
sport of surfing – is situated in the experiential world of blissitudes, art/aesthetics: a dimension far beyond words. Hanel’s boards combine his love of mathematics with the calculus of pure stoke. Each Hanel board I’ve ridden is a living work of high velocity intelligence meets the surreal functionality of art – a nexus made in interstellar awesomeness to say the least. I thank all of you – Hanel, Moonlight, and Marlin Bacon – for all your timeless brilliance and creativity put into generating these wave-gliding sculptures.
