IMG_3536On the color and form opening of Eye Yi Yi May 25th at Vintage Market Place in Malibu. The opening was a blast, plenty of color, pink flamingos, live music, yummy snacks and drinks. Friendly non-snooty crowd, nice seeing old friends and making new ones. Andy generously auctioned off one of his works to the highest bidder giving the proceeds to West LA/Malibu Surfrider. YAY! There is a variety of so-cal cool paintings and fairly priced prints. Show is running May 26th- July 1st, 2017.

FullSizeRenderAndy’s playful and colorful style reminds me of the word frolic and leaves much up for the imagination in a positive way. These new works do not disappoint. One of my fave’s is the “Wife Aquatic” because a) she is wearing a big hat. I love hats! Or even if I really hate hats, I have surrendered to waring them for sun protection. b) We are aquatic wives, women and girls at SLAG. Check out the show after a surf day at the beach or doing a local hike.

Liz Clark

Calling all co-sailing, surf, adventure enthusiasts. I have been following Captain Liz Clark’s voyage on Swell since she set sail back around ten years ago. At that time she was not a Patagonia Ambassador nor a Nat Geo Adventurer but boy has she earned both those titles. We are so excited to have her stop in Santa Monica. Join us if you can. For her 10 ways to make a better world, click the link above. Hope to see you there!PAT_S16_WsActive_LizClark_SantaMonica

Going all the way back to surfing queens in Hawaii-paving the way, on today’s pro-circuit women and girls are seeing better or more equal prize money.
