Jason and Goliath

Do yourself a favor and save the date for Jason Murray’s Big Wave, Goliaths of the Pacific, show opening on Friday September 16, 2011 @ the KONA Gallery in San Clemente. Jason has circled the globe with the best big wave riders on the planet and has captured some of the heaviest moments you’ve likely ever seen. Just a heads up...Murray doesn’t do small so expect big things. Everything from the catering to the prints to the bar will be larger than life. And with the WCT in town you are sure to see some of the best surfers in the world in attendance. Special thanks to: Daphne’s, Peligroso, Quiksilver and the Vine for their support.

New York State of Mind

The Quiksilver Pro New York is in full swing and, believe it or not, it’s actually living up to all the hype. Photographer to the stars and A-Frame contributor Justin Jay put it best “We’re thrilled to have the entire circus here. Nobody is more jaded than New Yorkers, but we just can’t hide our giddiness to see some world class surfing right here in our backyard.” Game on Justin. Enjoy.

To learn more about Justin Jay and his uncanny ability to mix it up with the worlds best surfers as well as the biggest names in the music industry we urge you to give this great piece done by Quiksilver a watch.

Pat Stacy scores consecutive SURFER covers
The highly anticipated SURFER Big Issue is out and boy is it a whopper. Weighing in at a hefty 5 lbs with over 265 pages the annual behemoth is chock full of incredible imagery. A-Framer's Zak Noyle, Todd Glaser, Jason Childs, Chris Burkard and Morgan Maassen scored the lion's share of the "100 Best Waves" feature and Pat Stacy locked down his second cover in a row. Job well done boys.

Don’t You Wanna?

Being a surf photographer isn’t all sand between the toes and hanging with the bros. Our boy Chris Straley can tell you firsthand that it’s grueling work. Check this little clip of his recent SPY® shoot with Kauai girl and surf industry bombshell Alana Blanchard.

The Red Bulletin has made its decent on America and they want you to know about it. Since 2007 the magazine has grown from a Formula One centered daily to an incredible piece of branded content that distributes over 3 million copies each month between Austria, United Kingdom, South Africa, Germany, Ireland, Kuwait, Poland, New Zealand and now the good 'ol USofA.

Keep your eyes out for the Jamie O'Brien truck wraps carrying, A-Frame Ace, Zak Noyle's amazing water photography. They'll be rolling through most major cities over the next six months so watch your back.

We love the current state of women's surfing. In and out of the water the gals are reaching new heights of professionalism. They're fun, athletic and magnetic. We simply can't get enough of them. Recently A-Frame had the pleasure of working with APPLE on their new iMac campaign and we couldn't be more proud of the result. In a space previously reserved for giant Teahupoo barrels, little Coco has taken center stage by storm. On the eve of the much anticipated Nike Women's film Leave a Message, a high-end Gatorade campaign and a Swatch event in her name, we think you'll fall under her spell as well.

Scott Serfas shoots it all and shoots it all well. His passion runs deep and it shows in his work. We'd never label him as just a "snow" guy but we sure are proud to have him on the A-Frame team spearheading our, soon to be unveiled, SNOW division. Scott composes images that put you right in the middle of the action. "I am recognized for my ability to translate the athlete's point of view and their experience," says Serfas. "I insist on capturing scenes that illustrate the scale and magnitude of the landscape so everyone sees a realistic interpretation of what the athlete is actually doing. On top of that, I strive for a unique perspective which sometimes means I am shooting in the equipment basket attached to the outside of a helicopter or I am scaling some peak at 5am to get the sunrise." Want to see for yourself? Well, you're in luck. Scott just launched an amazing new site that anyone remotely interested in photography will surely enjoy:
