To date we have had the pleasure of a talented bunch
of female Sea Gypsies who’ve featured in our
Citizens Of The Slide Interviews.
And until now no Sea Pirates to add some testosterone
to the mix. Enter Wisp aka
— CHRISTIAN  BARKER —
all burly and bearded. Something we noticed
from his recent McTavish
“Dedicated to the Craft” film is that he has soul, and is passionate about his surfing..

aka @mrrodgers_neighborhood

Mick resides in Encinitas, California and has been captured by local photographers, as well as featuring in several videos carving up waves in his ‘neighborhood’ & rolling around in his vintage Chevrolet utility.
We have been entranced by his super fluid style for many moons now. We had some questions for him…

Tuesday Tunes | Morning of the Earth | Terry Hanningan “I’ll be Alright”

We chose this weeks Tuesday Tunes to coincide with our recent move to Bali. We are chasing a more simplistic way of life.  Morning of the Earth is a 1971 classic surf film by Alby Falzon and David Elfick. And although our electronic obsessed society is nothing like the free & simple 70’s, we would dearly love to let go of the consumerism; that we like everyone else, is currently caught up in (noted: we still have our computers & devices, firmly in hand!) To focus instead on having a simple roof over our heads, (bungalow) which has little space for storing clothing; requiring us to limit the wardrobe; no car; no air conditioning and with only cold water. Best of all the location of this sea/tree change is none other than the area near by Uluwatu, the scene of many of the iconic images in the Morning of the Earth surf film adventure.. ☟
