We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams; World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams: Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world for ever, it seems. -Arthur O’Shaughnessy, “Ode,” 1874

body of work “final product; the things produced”
Issue #8 celebrates those who set out to create a legacy. Something that can be passed on to subsequent generations. A Body of Work. Artist Alison Van Pelt was an ovious choice to lead us into this issue. Her body of work is a celebration of color and texture with her very unique approach to photorealistic conceptual art. Beautiful and strong like her paintings who are a part of the most coveted collections in the world, Alison allows editor Claudia Taylor into her private world of paint with a peek at her quaint studio just a block from the ocean. The feature was shot by French photographer Philippe Bialobos, yet another artist who’s body of work is nothing less than impressive. No one can dispute that Land Rover is a prominent figure in this town and what a treat it was to hear Land Rover C.O.O. Gerry Mc Govern give a speech on how Modernism has influenced him since childhood and how it reflects in his design of Land Rover vehicles today. 90265 Magazine was one of a handful of press groups invited to his speech in Palm Springs during Modernism Week. We are very excited to bring you the EXCLUSIVE excerpts from Modernism + ME in this month’s issue ( the entire PDF is available on our website ). It is quite inspiring to see the many different designers and bodies of work that have influenced the megabrand.

A falling jetski nearly hits Raimana at Teahupo'o in 2005 photo by Brian Bielmann
It’s obvious we love chasing stories,which is what most publications do. But a story about girls who chase waves ? Well that just put us over the moon.. “Crushing on Both Coasts” is a new regular feature which establishes our Malibu - Montauk connection making it’s debut on the heels of the release of MTK - The Mag, a Montauk Lifestyle magazine. This inaugural installment has local surf goddess Frankie Harrer answering the call from surf legend Raimana Van Bastolaer to surf a serious swell in Teahupoo with her bi coastal bestie Quincy Davis in tow ( pun intended - they towed in - BIG TIME ). In closing, you may have noticed a few changes in the look and feel of the magazine. Issue 8 was the first opportunity where I felt we could exercise a little more creative muscle since our launch last September. In the beginning, it was more important for us to establish a clear difference between our publication and the other local mags and now that we have done that, 90265 Magazine will continue to evolve into a legacy worth leaving future generations. In essence, our Body of Work.
MALIBU LIFE & STYLE
ABOVE & RIGHT These design concepts for a Land Rover showroom and motor show stand were inspired by McGovern’s love of a reductive, modern approach.
Design is a very important aspect of my life. Clearly, automotive design is my principle discipline; however, it is design in all its manifestations that drives me. My work ARTIST includes visioning our future product range, Andy Jackson... while giving creative direction to every touch point between one of the world’s greatest brands and its customers. Modernism touched every aspect of art and design, so I’m mindful of its influence in all the disciplines in which I now work. When I think back to what first made me fall in love with good design, and understand its ability to improve lives, it was always Modernism. From the brave Modern architecture of my home town, rising from the rubble left by war, to the first furniture I bought, the first car I loved, and the homes I have created, Modernism is the constant theme. Assembling this collection of my influences has allowed me to focus again on the principles of this movement. I hope they inspire you, as they have always inspired me.

MALIBU PLAYHOUSE A New Play in Two Acts by D. Paul Yeuell Capturing the ﬁrst instantaneous image of a running horse, Eadweard Muybridge changed the way we see the world, pulled back the curtain on the very nature of reality. When he set a sequence of images in motion again and cast them on a wall, he spawned the movie industry and all its offspring. But his success drew him into the roiling, heady mix of Artists and Robber Barons in the Gold Rush Days of San Francisco and a fatal amour with a woman half his age. “Man in Motion” tells the story of the ﬁrst man to capture motion, the ﬁrst to project it on a screen... and the last in California to convince a jury that his wife’s lover deserved to be shot in the heart by him.

Actress... and so much more. by Hali Simons
Longtime Malibu resident Julie Carmen opens up about her acting career and life transitions that have given her a wealth of new opportunities for abundant personal and professional growth. Julie Carmen, an actress for more than three decades, has starred in films for directors Robert Redford, John Cassavetes, John Carpenter and Michael Mann. She studied extensively with Sanford Meisner at Neighborhood Playhouse, Uta Hagen at HB Studio and most recently with Patsy Rodenburg of Guildhall. But once she moved to Malibu, her focus turned toward her children turning a yoga teacher’s training program into quality family time. Julie has since taught at Malibu Yoga, Passages, Exhale. During this time, Carmen also completed a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology. She is now a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice and is the Associate Director of Mental Health at Loyola Marymount University Yoga Therapy certificate program. Now an empty nester, Julie recently jumped back into the Hollywood game, starring in a hot new indie surf film, Dawn Patrol, directed by Daniel Petrie, Jr. opposite Scott Eastwood and Rita Wilson, scheduled for a Fall release. Julie states, “we are living longer lives and most people I know are passionately juggling more than one career. With the right combo, the professions inform each other. The traits of intuition, analysis and empathic immersion are necessary for an actor and for a psychotherapist. Balance is the perpetual gift of yoga. ” Julie’s fascination with mental health started to morph with Hollywood when she was asked to play the mother of a man with a very low IQ in King of the Jungle opposite John Leguizamo. “I like to be aged on screen. It’s easy to play older and it broadens ones options. The oldest I’ve played is 2000,” referring to vampire Regine Dandridge in the original campy cult classic FRIGHT NIGHT PART TWO. The conflict that many women, who work far from home feel, really surfaced during one of the big Malibu fires. “I was away in Austin, playing Angelina Jolie’s mom in the mini series, True Women, but when I called home my young kids said, ‘Daddy’s video taping the stuff in the house! We’re evacuating.’ Those were hard times to be away from family.” Julie remembers her film roots, “John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands set the bar for me, a truth barometer that forever haunts me to dig deeper.” John rehearsed with us for two weeks and let us block the scene organically and did not let the cinematographer dialogue with the actors. He wanted to vigilantly protect the internal life of the characters. Due to time constraints, it’s done differently today but it was a luxury working from the inside out so purely. Gloria has been Julie’s lucky card. “There have been many angels in my quirky career and I remember them all. In retrospect, life can give us one or two extraordinary breaks but those are just launching pads, the rest is detailed work.”

Interview and photos by Carol Sue Stoddard
At the age of 78, Saginaw Grant is a highly respected elder in and out of his Native American community. A powerful positive role model, he is adamant about keeping his culture alive and well. He is a Core Head Dancer and Motivational Speaker at Pow Wow gatherings and his talents have also given him a colorful career as an actor with his most recent film working with Johnny Depp in “The Lone Ranger”. Born in Pawnee Oklahoma and a tribal member of the ‘Sac and Fox Nation’, he presently lives in Southern California where Malibu has been his favorite gathering place for Pow Wow’s going on 16 years. WHAT IS A POW WOW EXACTLY AND WHAT IS IT’S PURPOSE? “A Pow Wow is a gathering of friends that come together and celebrate. We sing our songs, dance our dances, pray. We get to hear from all the other tribes. There is a Pow Wow almost every week-end somewhere in the country. We come together to renew our strength and fortify ourselves for the upcoming week so we can deal with present day life. When you hear a drum played at a Pow Wow, that drum is the heart beat of our people. We feel good when we hear that drum. All races of people have always used that to communicate with each other. The simple things mean a great deal to us.” TELL US WHY MALIBU HAS HONORED POW WOW EVENTS “My native people have always been in this area and in the Channel Islands. Malibu has really recognized our people by having this gathering, in it’s 16th year I believe. Malibu has taken a step forward in sponsoring this gathering each year. The Chumash, known for their canoes, made the journey from the Channel Islands to Malibu and up the coast for centuries. So Malibu is one place where they really know who we are and what our makeup is in life. I really enjoy myself when I come to the Malibu Pow Wows, especially because of the atmosphere, the ocean, the mountains..... .” WHAT ARE YOUR DREAMS AND YOUR GOALS? “Just living my life and showing people who we are....we are just like everyone else with two arms and legs, even though we do have different cultures. My goal in life is to teach people my way of living and how my ancestors lived. I listened and retained the stories of my elders and the different philosophies that brought our people where they are today. It is meant to be carried on to future generations, like a dual education of our elders and of todays way of life. I think I am successful in the way that I live because I really enjoy myself and doing things for other people. We are put here on Mother Earth to enjoy life..... ...the simple things mean a great deal to us”.

Chumash Day Powwow
An annual celebration held at Bluff’s Park by Jackie Robbins
The 16th Chumash Day Powwow at the Malibu Bluffs Park was dynamic, as it always is, an ongoing local event in celebration of Earth Day. I have probably attended almost every single one. Walking into the grounds the sound of the drumming ignites my heart and it seems to beat louder. The “People” say that the drum mimics the sound of the Heart of the Earth… the drummers voices are animal and man, screaming life force, joyous and trembling at the same time. The dancers are the most beautiful sight, their fringe and decorations flying through the air or swaying to the beat. So much pride and forbearance accompanies their movements. It is grace realized. Malibu has a short history in comparison to the history of the “People” who are the indigenous persons who have inhabited this country we call America. I find it very gratifying to honor them, celebrating the history of the land we now live on. I look forward to sharing more in up-coming issues about this gathering and the meaning it has for all of us who call Malibu home. Photo by Jackie Robbins

FAILING UPWARD - Khalil Rafati
“Sunlife Organics just celebrated it’s third year in Malibu. The love and support from everyone has been so amazing - in fact a bit overwhelming. I have been moved to tears on many occasions by people’s generosity and kindness. I am confident that if we opened anywhere else, we wouldn’t have succeeded. We had absolutely no idea what we were doing. Thankfully, everyone was so patient. When we first started, our wait time was 40 minutes. I was so embarrassed but everyone just kept coming back and bringing their friends. Our order process was old school for sure -scribbling them down on a receipt paper because back then because we couldn’t afford the $18,000 Micros POS System. We’d have veggie juice and almond butter smeared all over us with this huge line out the door and I would look over at everyone waiting and they would be smiling. There was a well known actor that would come in every day ( that I was a huge fan of ) and somehow we managed to almost always lose his order. Sometimes 45 minutes would pass and he would be patiently sitting there still waiting for his smoothie. I would try to apologize and he would calmly smile and tell me it was ok. A week later I overheard him defending us to an out of towner who was complaining about the wait time. I couldn’t believe it! The woman immediately recognized who was giving her a ‘tallkin to’ and looked like she was going to faint from being star struck!
“We’ve literally failed our way to
SUCCESS” - Khalil Rafati The local kids we hire along with the amazing clientele make Sunlife Organics the coolest place I have ever been to. I know that sounds weird ( and I hope not arrogant ) but I am just as much a fan, if not more so, than anyone. I love coming in here! I am obssessed with this place! The vibe is unlike anything I have ever experienced. I have nothing to do with that, it’s the kids that work here and the customers that come in here everyday. Plain and simple. I’d like to take credit for it but I can’t. Our second location in Thousand Oaks just celebrated it’s one year anniversary and our third in Calabasas opens in just a few weeks. In the fall, we will open our fourth Sunlife Organics in the Malibu Country Mart. I am proud to say we employ over a hundred amazing kids from the local community. I am quite aware that I could drastically reduce my payroll cost by hiring readily available cheap labor like most other food service establishments do and probably reduce wait times as well, but then we wouldn’t be Sunlife Organics!

California Surfing and Climbing in the Fifties is the second big format art book project between photographer and photo anthropologist Dean Fidelman (of Stone Nudes reknown), and legendary designer and art director, Tom Adler. And what do rock climbing and surfing share in common save for the restless young men with dangerous dreams who sought adventure in the California sun? Namely, the parallel movements that swept through the 1950s - of cowboy independence and the birth of “adventure sports” - as they came to life on the big rock faces (most notably in Yosemite Valley) and scattered beach breaks strewn along the So Cal coastline. Adler’s ultra-clean “museum” design and Fidelman’s artful handling of the black and white images furnish a charmed time machine to more innocent times, when gasoline was 23 cents a gallon and the modern rudiments of climbing and surfing were fashioned on the spot by a cast of charismatic rogues immortalized in these pages.

with some juicy surf speak by Rob Taylor ( not gonna lie ). There are only a handful of surf photographers legendary enough to have their photo credit rise to the level of brand recognition. Brian Bielmann is one of those lauded few. Over the years, adrenaline fueled adventures have lead to Brian capturing some of the most legendary wave riders in the world. Far flung travels with the likes of 11-time World Champion Kelly Slater and the Kaui bred powerhouse duo of Andy and Bruce Irons has given Bielmann an all-access pass to the development of modern power surfing. Capturing perfect waves, deep barrels and huge hacks with tack sharp focus has helped him rise to rock star status in the world of surf photography. His ability to navigate the impact zones of storied surf breaks has produced iconic images that have appeared in influential publications such as Rolling Stone, National Geographic and Sports Illustrated. Bielmann’s well trained eye, has also landed him global ad campaigns for megabrands Guiness Beer, Volcom, Billabong and Quicksliver. One year his work was featured simultaneously on three billboards in the center of Oahu - a surf photographer’s “triple crown”. With 15 years at Transworld Surf under his belt, Brian Bielmann begins a whole new chapter in his otherwise illustrious career as 90265 Magazine’s Director of Surf Content. We are humbled by his level of professionalism and his creative vision adds yet another burst of originality to this growing publication. Brian will help us to push the envelope as we showcase the world’s ultimate bohemian lifestyle communities.. Bielmann will also hold the same title in our Montauk edition releasing June 2.

By Claudia Taylor photos of Alison Van Pelt by Philippe Bialobos
What’s most fascinating about Alison Van Pelt’s body of work is understanding how arduous her process is, and yet how easily the work seems to convey her intent. Van Pelt works feverishly; first defining, drawing on the canvas, then obscuring her images with layers of paint- ultimately revealing the ghost soul of her subject. In a way, the effect is like she’s speaking two languages at once- one to your head, and the other to your own soul. In her work, there is a photographic quality to the found images, which are often portraits of famous artists, writers, political and spiritual leaders, Native Americans, or animals still and in motion, or pop-culture icons, and torsos. It’s as if the viewer is looking through lenses covered with Vaseline, the image is vague, and yet beckons. For a woman so young to have had such a lauded career, museum collections, in numerous notable private collections including Princess Diana, Bill Clinton and Malibu’s Frederick Weisman, proves her ambition is born of total passion and cobra-like focus on her art form. We caught up with Alison in her immaculate, tiny, hyper organized studio at the base of Santa Monica Canyon. She was in the beginning stages of preparing a large commissioned piece for Laurie David - branching into a completely different subject matter- literally a deep forest, but one that will allow light to shine through the trees. Once she steps into the painting process, she won’t emerge for days. She virtually disappears, and emerges again after the cathartic conclusion...when she can step back, adjust her focus and stand by the open door of our shared perception.

CT: The Malibu years. Your studio was tucked away in the creek bed up Las Flores Canyon in the 90’s - the historic Rock House. AVP: It was owned by gallerist Jim Corcoran - I loved it there. It was paradise for me, to be there with that studio, with my dogs, painting in the woods and then taking the dogs to the beach every day. It was perfect. But it was a bit isolating. It’s probably better for me to be where I am now; mystudio now is more central and it’s easy for people to drop by. I’d behappy to go days without seeing anyone, but that’s probably not healthy. CT: Lets discuss inspiration and appropriation… AVP: Regarding appropriation: Appropriation is the highest form of flattery. But it’s dirty if you don’t show respect to the artists you copy or are influenced by. Be up front. Say thank you. Right now I’m looking at a lot of young artists and it’s having a big impact on me. It’s exciting. It’s the evolution of art history. I’m happy to credit everyone who’s influenced me. I’d already been blurring stuff for years when I saw Richter in the 80’s. I was shamelessly trying to copy Francis Bacon, not Richter, but that didn’t work. Once I did see Richter I had a lot of mixed feelings. I was a little crushed, because I had thought I was so original - and he’s a freaking Art God. But it was also encouraging - he made me feel like what I was doing was legitimate. But I also had to find a way to distinguish myself. I can get comfortable and I like repetition - I can paint the same thing a hundred times, trying to get it right. So it’s good for me when something pushes me. For years I didn’t let anything influence me, I wanted to perfect what I was doing. Of course I could chase that forever, but I finally got bored! I’m trying new things now. After 30 years!
Face, oil on canvas, 1989
body of work CT: You often use flip phrases to convey a double entendre on your portraits . How would you describe your relationship to words? AVP: Most of those paintings, the portraits with text, are a tribute to Ed Ruscha. The title of the show was, “If I were Ed Ruscha...” So, for instance, “I’d Rule” was painted on The Queen. Andy Warhol says, “I’d Be A Beauty” - because Andy used to say, “If everyone’s not a beauty, then no one is.” (which ties back to Ed, who’s a real beauty). Jesus says, “I’d Be God’s Gift” and David Beckham says the same thing. I was having fun. I like Scrabble, The NY Times crossword, reading books, words are comforting - word games occupy a part of the mind that might otherwise be worried or obsessing... They are stress relievers. Words are fun to play with. CT: How does feminism inform your work? AVP: All the women in my family have had a significant impact on me, but my mother, Susan, has been the biggest influence. She said things like “you can do anything you put your mind to “you are a great artist”and “You can do anything a man can do.” I think those statements shaped my life. I was so young that I simply took them as truth. It was the late 60’s early 70’s and she was a feminist. She was probably telling me things she would have liked to have heard growing up. She had three brothers and was a real tomboy. At 17 she was already pre-med at UCLA when she got pregnant with my brother and a year later with me. She eventually became a nurse, but I think she was determined that I should have choices. She encouraged me to be self-actualized in a way that seemed unavailable to her. She and my maternal Grandmother Phyllis both painted, as did my Great Grandmother Edna Oglesby (Nana). Sadly, they all either hid or destroyed almost all of their paintings. But that pattern ended with my little sister and me; our mother honored our creativity and self-determination. Incidentally, we recently discovered that Nana was a disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, another big influence, especially in my childhood. These women struggled with their independence, autonomy, self-doubt and self-determination. I am inexorably affected by this lineage of fascinating, talented, conflicted women - these covert, closeted painters.

American Horse, oil on canvas, 2010
body of work CT: Now lets discuss influences and mentors. AVP: I don’t know that I’ve really had mentors. I like to learn, I like to study, but I like to experiment on my own. I tend to need to learn things on my own. I’ve attended a lot of schools, but never stayed anywhere for very long. I went to UCLA, Otis, Art Center, and the Florence Academy of Art. I studied with Stephen Douglas at The Brentwood Art Center. He was my first painting teacher. He had studied under Kitaj. He was a big influence. I do like to have heroes. There are a lot of people I admire. Georgia O’Keefe has been a great figure for me since childhood. I used to be afraid of ending up alone in the desert. Now that sounds amazing! One of my earliest art memories is of Meret Oppenheim’s fur teacup - Object: Breakfast in Fur, 1939, at LACMA in the late 60’s. My mom used to take us to the museum a lot. I painted Louise Bourgeois, Frida Kahlo, Eva Hesse, Lee Krasner, Alice Neel, Agnes Martin, Claude Cahun, and more...Those paintings are 9ft x 7ft, The Women. They were exceptional women, mavericks and pioneers and I think about them a lot. But my work itself, the actual painting, is influenced more by Rothko, Chuck Close, Francis Bacon, Richter and Warhol. Although I feel a change coming. I’m finding myself attracted to a lot of new artists, Bold patterns, complicated compositions...I think my work is shifting. We’ll see. I’m excited. Going back to the beginning, the most influential artist was probably Piero Resta. I had dropped out of UCLA and was living on Maui with my then boyfriend. He took me to his father’s studio, and my life changed completely. It was dreamlike. He painted in his beautiful studio, overlooking the ocean and then traveled around the world with his shows. I had never seen this. I was done. What more could I want than a painting studio overlooking the ocean? I came back to LA and went back to school.

body of work CT: You live simply, travel extensively, and dress down or downright beautifully- let’s talk fashion and philosophy: AVP: As far as fashion goes: My whole spiritual upbringing was about meditation and happiness coming from within, which I absolutely subscribe to. But I can’t fight it: I love clothes. They really do make me happy! You have to know what gives you joy. Why not indulge the fashion-love? It’s about beauty and fun. Clothes can shift your mood, they can be armor if you’re feeling vulnerable. Great designers are artists and I really appreciate them. CT: You’ve stated “I’m great at being single.” Please elaborate: AVP: My work is consuming, of my time, my focus, and it’s what I love to do. It’s how I enter the world and show my love and interests and enthusiasms. I am compelled to paint a subject because I’m viscerally drawn to it. I don’t always know why until I analyze it later. For instance, Horses were about freedom, Native Americans were about strength. I had to buck up and find the fight in me. It’s an oversimplification, but you get the idea. It’s what I needed at the time. Painting is how I like to connect, to engage with people and the world. I put it out there and I feel seen. So, when I’m involved in a relationship and a man starts to compete with my work for time and attention, it just ‘s a problem for me. I enjoy being in control of ime; I’m selfish that way. And I’m unwilling to compromise. My work is my greatest joy and I just haven’t met my match, the right fit. And that’s fine. I’m not waiting, I don’t feel like anything’s missing. I’m doing exactly what I want right now, and I answer to myself. I think I’ve finally outgrown the desire to please others - not to be misunderstood - I love to please others - but I’ve learned not to do it at my own expense. Like with my painting - I please myself first. I’m not looking to anyone else for approval. It’s a great, liberating feeling to shed that need. CT: What is a work day like? AVP: Some days, when I’m drawing, I can take my time, take breaks, go to unch, just like a normal person. But on a painting day I start early in the morning, mixing paint. That can take about an hour. Then, once I touch paint to the canvas, the clock starts running. Whether it’s 10 nches or 10 feet, I have to fill the canvas, paint every detail, and then blur the entire field, all while the paint is wet. It takes anywhere from 20 to 48 hours, with little or no sleep. Every time, at around 3:00am, I get angry for about an hour and want to go to bed. But, after that I get on a roll and there’s no stopping me. The blurring part can last up to 12 hours. Sometimes I can’t stop and take it too far. You really have to know when to stop.
Below, The Kiss, oil on canvas, 1998
CT: Do you ever turn off? AVP Yes. A lot. I think of it as hitting zero. I like to stop everything, do nothing, until I crave activity; thatâ€™s when I like to start a painting. I can lie around and watch movies and tv all day until I really feel like a lump. I like to do that right before I do an all-nighter. I often go two days with no sleep.

body of work CT: How has your technique evolved? AVP: When I started I was trying to emulate Francis Bacon. Instead I got these ghosty blurred paintings and I was really disappointed. Lesson #1 : Let go of your expectations. You might miss the magic and the happy accident. This applies to life: Success may not look like you imagined it would! This doesn’t mean you failed. Plenty of times, because a lot of my expectations hadn’t materialized yet, I assumed I wasn’t successful. For instance, more and more artists were asking me to mentor them, grad students were writing their theses about my work, things like that. A lot of amazing things were happening and I was missing it, unhappy about what wasn’t happening, what I wasn’t getting. It’s like hating my paintings because they don’t look like Bacon. It doesn’t help to be dissatisfied; the tendency to tear things apart, compare and criticize doesn’t motivate me. The notion that contentedness is equal to complacency and being stuck is just false. Really, feeling grateful is empowering and energizing and that’s what helps propel me forward. Being grateful has become a practice for me. If I look at my life with a grateful perspective, then I’m living my dreams! In my studio, looking at the ocean.

Curated by Claudia Taylor Some of us collect seashells by the seashore. I’m elated to find a new heart shaped rock on a daily walk. But when it comes to collecting fine art, specifically modern art... questions arise. Trust your own instincts, or look to the advice of a pro? You have some money to work with, you’ve got some wall space or a garden for sculpture. You start the hunt like a heat seeking missile- haunting galleries, auctions, studio tours, and of course, LA’s well established museum scene. To learn. To become exposed to the vernacular, to see what resonates with you. A work of art turns you on, hits the right notes. You feel the emotional response. It’s something you want to live with, spend time with. The work talks to you. Then the reality kicks in: does this purchase have anything to with an investment? Is this a good buy, if I ever choose to sell in the future for any reason? Answer: The art market is stronger than it ever has been. So go for it. It gives you joy and your investment is safe. The artists selected here are a sampling of substantial and diverse talents. Integral participants in the world art market, and included here as they each have a local connection to our community. They have lived, worked, surfed or found inspiration here. Some are comrades, collecting each other’s art. They all share the common ground, and are in prominent collections of major influencers who call Malibu home, or at least, a second home.
Please refer to 90265Magazine.com for a complete BIO/CV on all artists listed here.
We urge you to explore our local treasure- the WEISMAN FOUNDATION at Pepperdine. Think about joining the Santa Monica Museum of Art and take part in the many events hosted at Bergamot Station. Of course, tour LACMA , MOCA, the GETTY, the ANNENBERG SPACE FOR PHTOGRAPHY, and the highly anticipated BROAD MUSEUM, opening in downtown LA 2015. Grab a gallery guide , discover off the beaten track dealers, and support our fine museums in Los Angeles. Life is for learning.

CHARLES ARNOLDI A Malibu local and Venice art icon, Chuck continues to ‘get it done’, to explore his natural compositions in paint, print and sculpture. Classic Form + Color are Arnoldi’s playground. He’s perhaps most famous for his ‘stick construction’ work early in his career, but has translated that understanding to two dimensional surfaces just as intricate in depth. Highly skilled, and versatile, Arnoldi has always been a pivotal figure in the Venice art scene that burst onto the world stage in the 60’s. He continues his prolific outpouring of mature work, yet ever the child looking for the simplicity and clarity in composition. Chuck and his wife, author Katy Arnoldi, call Pt. Dume home, and raised their family of talented progeny here. Natalie and Ryland Arnoldi carry the torch. Google “The Amazing Arnoldi’s”. Arnoldi’ s new and vintage works are on view now through June at Gallery 169 West Channel Road Santa Monica 310 230-0195 Charlesarnoldistudio.com

ROGER HERMAN Roger Herman has been called one of LA’s ‘best kept secrets’, but that’s hard to swallow. Since he arrived here from Germany in the 80’s, Herman’s work has attracted notice like a lightening rod. He is known for massive wood-block prints, lush and wild large-scale abstract paintings, and organic, erotic pottery. Herman’s style can be caricaturized as non-conventional, not concerned with perfection, but just true expression. Herman’s SIlverLake studio, (where he lives and works) is an architectural dream conceived in collaboration with Frederick Fisher AIA , in the shadow of Dodger Stadium. His work is widely collected by Malibu collectors including Eli Broad, who keeps a beach house on Carbon Beach, The Coanzoneris, and Michael and Kim McCarty.Richard Telles Shown in the US and Europe, with solo exhibitions that include Richard Telles Fine Art / Los Angeles for his ceramics; LACMA, MOCA and the Gruenewald Center at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. Herman has been on faculty for the department of painting and drawing at UCLA since 1990. Roger Herman has a show up thru June at ACME gallery in Los Angeles http://www.rogerherman.net

KIM McCARTY Kim’s prolific work in watercolor on paper is sensitive, illusive, evocative, and often profound in scale. Watercolor is an ephemeral medium: the artist must commit fully to each stroke, wait for the water and pigment to dry, and then make the next move. Kim exhibits this control, and is a master of the medium. Her work evokes the soul of her chosen subjects, spirits of youth, animalia, emotions like loneliness, longing, separation. Kim and her husband Michael, co–owners and proprietors and of Michael’s restaurant, are Malibu locals. MiCHAEL’s on 3rd/ Wilshire in Santa Monica is both the birthplace of California Cuisine, and also a vibrant salon for their close cadre of Venice artists. They have lived in Malibu’s Rambla Vista area for decades, cultivated a boutique vineyard, and raised their family here. kimmccarty.net Representation: NEW YORK; Morgan Lehman, morganlehmangallery.com

LINDSEY NOBEL Lindsey Nobel is young phenom-- an art gypsy who calls the world home and paints wherever she lands. She was one of two female artists to be selected for the highly acclaimed, California influenced “SWELL” show in NYC in 2012. (Natalie Arnoldi, Chucks daughter, was represented as well) Nobel began her series “Liquidline” while working in a borrowed studio near her adjacent rented Malibu digs at Big Rock . Her work brings to mind, in an abstract, but literally obvious way, how our brain works. Neural connectivity is her muse. Lindsey’s lines are all about tracking and mapping how neural messages connect within our brains, in brilliant color and composition. Lindsey shows internationally.

ANDY MOSES Andy Moses’ journey as an independent artist faced a large challenge: his father Ed Moses wears ‘ big shoes’ in the international art world. Andy swam in the pool of talent, gaining exposure to ideas and discipline from his prodigious father and friends as well as his Cal Arts compatriots and twenty years in the trenches in the New York art world. It has all lead to a personal mode of exploration that is entirely unique. Andy’s paintings masterfully communicate the fluid, transient nature of the ocean and nature at its most elemental. He’s been surfing Malibu since the mid 70’s, and his luminescent paintings convey a communion with the sea, and sky as well as the history of abstract painting. It is his wholly original technique though that makes you step back, and step forward, and keep on looking. Andy Moses is represented locally by William Turner Gallery, at Bergamot Station, in Santa Monica. His next solo show at the gallery will be in the fall, 2014

MODERNISM + ME Design is a very important aspect of my life. Clearly, automotive design is my principle discipline; however, it is design in all its manifestations that drives me. My work includes visioning our future product range, while giving creative direction to every touch point between one of the worldâ€™s greatest brands and its customers. Modernism touched every aspect of art and design, so Iâ€™m mindful of its influence in all the disciplines in which I now work. When I think back to what first made me fall in love with good design, and understand its ability to improve lives, it was always Modernism. From the brave Modern architecture of my home town, rising from the rubble left by war, to the first furniture I bought, the first car I loved, and the homes I have created, Modernism is the constant theme. Assembling this collection of my influences has allowed me to focus again on the principles of this movement. I hope they inspire you, as they have always inspired me.

McGovern House McGovern House is a collaboration between Gerry McGovern and British architect Adrian Baines. “I met Adrian many years ago. He always wanted to be a car designer and became an architect, and I always wanted to be an architect and became a car designer. So we promised each other that one day we would design a house together, and McGovern House is the result.” “Designing a Modernist house in the mid-Warwickshire countryside brings a different set of challenges from sunny California,” Gerry says. He was determined to introduce the Modern aesthetic to rural England. “The site banks up on both sides of the building,” says Gerry of his home’s setting. “So the challenge was to create a structure that sits comfortably in its landscape.” RIGHT McGovern House (detail) has been designed to sit perfectly in the natural contours of its plot.

DOUGH By Carol Hoyt
There is a new tasting room in town and it’s called Boar Dough. Sitting directly across from the Regency theatre in the old Johnny Rockets, you could say it marks the top of the Malibu Wine trail. As you enter this intimate family owned business, Joanne and Charles Bruchez warmly greet you, also at the helm is their son Charlie working behind the counter. Charles has had a long history in the restaurant and wine industry and it shows. He began his journey in the beer business outside of Liverpool. He then moved to the states and continued from there. Boar Dough has a lovely ambiance, its cork covered walls and barrel stave light fixtures help to create this. Taking this one step further as the sun goes down the windows illuminate photographs of classic rock stars. I sit at the counter and chat with Charles about the one of the most unusual wine lists I have seen. His taste in wine is exquisite. His list, of course, proudly includes Malibu locals, but he extends it from Paso Robles down and continues to mix it up according to the seasons. From there he then branches out, his European background and knowledge of those wines takes you to explore wine from all over the world, including, but not limited to, Hungary, the Loire Valley France, and Germany. Bruchez wants you to experience wines you have never tried before in an approachable way. It is where local wines meet wines from around the world. Many of the wines from this eclectic menu allow you to choose a from a taste to a full glass and as we approach summer you might even choose a Greek Rose or a reserve from Croatia. Of course with his beer background you will find some most unusual ales, Ciders and IPA’s. The mouth watering descriptions are almost as interesting as the beers themselves, like Turbo Dog , a Malty, caramelized brown ale, or Logsdon Farmhouse, a funky, complex Belgian Saison, and even a creamy, chocolaty oatmeal stout from Anderson Valley. While you taste through some wines be sure to explore the food. If you like to sit at the counter (which I do) you can watch the fresh bread being rolled out for the homemade focaccia, flat bread pizzas. Be sure not to miss date wrapped with manchego cheese with bacon and the pork belly with jalapeno glaze (it is not “Boar Dough” for nothing) is just amazing! There are plenty of delicious greens for our veggie loving friends – like the fried brussell sprouts – which go down like potato chips. The love for good food and wine is shared by his staff, who genuinely are glad to be there and share their flavorful creations. Whether you are going to the movies, or making Boar Dough a part of your Malibu Wine tour, the wines here invite you to explore and take chances. The things you can also look forward to here are pop up wine tastings and specialty cooking and wine classes. They are open now for lunch and dinner Wednesday – Sunday.
Wine tip of the month: For the perfect cellar temperature for a delicate red like a Pinot Noir, place the bottle in the refrigerator for 1/2 an hour before serving. Reds shouldn’t be served warm either! Carol Hoyt is a winemaker based in Malibu California. You can find her award winning wines at: hoytfamilyvineyards.com

A PERSPECTIVE By Louis Lenard
One moment, our confidence is riding high on the wave of our latest achievement and like a shooting star, it can burn up and disappear right before our eyes. “Yessss, that incredible woman just gave me her phone number! I’m pretty much Bradley Cooper right now!” Then, a few days later, “Wait, she never called me back…” Results-based confidence is about as sturdy as a house of cards. When we base our self-assurance on the success/fail/win/lose/approval/rejection scale, the consequential emotional highs and lows are as imminent as the next sunrise. It permeates all aspects of our life and what it boils down to is that our performance, or lack thereof, dictates our level of self-esteem. For many of us, it’s a wellworn path because sadly, our parents have instilled this in us from very early on. To win is to be loveable. Let’s forgive the parents though, because, the truth is, when we parents really get honest, when our children succeed, it makes US look better! I know, we’re all doing the best we can here. There is another way though, the Middle Way. In this context, the Middle Way represents basing our confidence on our abilities. Worst-case scenario… “But wait, I can’t do anything, I have no abilities, I suck!” “No way”, I say. Your body is doing over 1 Million things right every second just to keep you alive. That’s pretty rad in my book and that’s just for starters. Beyond that, as we move forward a few steps, we look at our present circumstances. We are in school, at a job, we have a passion, a dream, we play sports, we’re in the performing arts, we’re looking for romance, etc. Whatever it is, we may find ourselves thinking we’re not good enough to pull off the challenge that lies in front of us. Our confidence is shaky at best, yet our desire so strong. Here are a few steps to developing a rock-solid confidence that endures, regardless of external outcomes. 1. Continually remind ourselves that we CAN. Truthfully, maybe we will, maybe we won’t, but when we firmly believe and trust that we CAN, it frees us up to perform at our best and this most often equates to positive outcomes. Most of us have practiced enough to be able to draw upon a situation where we DID, (or did something close to what we’re trying to do), which helps build trust in our abilities to know that we CAN. If not, practice more, study more, etc. until that’s possible. 2. Speaking of practicing, keep practicing. We can never be over-prepared. The more we practice, the easier it is to face our fears head on and build confidence. 3. Love the challenge in front of us. Be giddy with excitement for the opportunity to flourish, it makes us feel ALIVE! 4. Be present in the process and stay out of the results. Visualize yourself succeeding at your goal, then let go, be decisive and committed and focus on each moment of the process only. 5. Play life to win instead of playing to not lose. When we play to not lose, we are not free. We tense up and fear takes over. If we’re stuck here, go back to #1. 6. Be our own best friend. Pulling from golf, we can be our own caddie. Always reassuring, positive minded and helpful to achieve maximum results. The more we love ourselves for exactly who we are, the less our self-esteem is dictated by results and paradoxically enough, the more likely we are to achieve the results we seek. There are situations in life that we have no control over. We accept and let them go as best we can. We can, however, control our attitudes and actions. If we use these tips to the best of our ability, steadfast confidence will eventually follow. sleepingmonk.net instagragram: @sleepingmonks
Soulcycle, the leading luxury fitness craze has finally made it’s way to Malibu - and now we’re wondering how we ever lived with out it. Our east coast counterparts have been taking part in the coveted classses for some time now, even paying as much as $70 a pop for first class check-in. ( YES - it’s that good ). I must admit, I was skeptical at first - $30 for a spin class seemed a little over top. But once you’ve experienced this total body workout from arms to ass, calves to quads, you will understand what all the fuss is about. The unique instruction, movements and motivation is part private training, part party on a spin bike. That combination is truly hard to come by unless you come into SOULCYCLE and get your spin ON!

MAKOS with Tom Corliss Interview by Jackie Robbins
Photo by Jackie Robbins
JR: I remember bringing my child; she was about 10-11 years old when she started surf camp at Malibu Makos and feeling comfortable dropping her off at the beach with you and your staff…how do you do that, I mean after all, the beach can be a dangerous place? How do you give parents that confidence? TC: What I realized very early on is that you treat people, especially the kids, respectfully as an individual. Yes I have a program and I have a curriculum and a teaching methodology and it does apply to everybody but I do understand that each kid is different. Some kids you don’t have to tell anything, they just want to get out there and hit the surf instantly. Then you have kids who are here for days and days and maybe they’re scarred of kelp and sharks. So there are different ways to help everybody, I try to be gentile and understanding and not force kids. If I provide the atmosphere and have a great and fun staff who do not pressure, we finally get all the kids out there having the most fun time of their lives. You really can’t push kids as hard as we used to 20 years ago, because they have a lot more say in what they do and where they go. A lot of the kids choose their camps themselves, so you learn to balance the schools ethics as an instructor and what you need to do with the individual. If a kid gets frustrated they just text their parents and ask to picked up and they are gone. So we strive to find a balance. We work at a tuff beach, so we work hard with every kid to prepare him or her, to make sure they have a positive experience. We’ve been very successful with our program; over all the years I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. As far as the trust we hope to maintain with parents; I try to get the best instructors, we have a training program, first aid, cpr, 90% of the people have come through the camp or I know them personally. We hire real ocean lifeguards so we have a high level of instructor experience, which is v e r y important to parents. When you come to camp you find all the instructors in uniforms, everybody looks professional and the set up is professional, right away that gives the parents confidence. The parents come in and meet everybody, I train my instructors how to meet and greet, how to approach parents, how to speak to parents.
BODY OF WORK
Because I’ve figured out that if I don’t tell you what I expect from you then I can’t expect it, so I have a training manual and I go over it every year and I review all these different things. The first 15 or 20 seconds with the kids and their parents is huge; so my staff knows how to handle that appropriately putting everyone at ease. There are always people with lifeguard buoys standing by the water watching. There is always someone watching every kid. We’ve learned too, from our experience. JR: Teaching Ocean Safety is so important for our kids in Malibu, besides that there is always the importance of respecting the environment, how do you teach that? TC: We pick up trash; when we are out there surfing if you see trash you grab it and put it in your wetsuit, keep surfing, when you come back in throw it in the trashcan. The way camp runs is that when the kids get here first thing we do is have a safety talk, and morning briefing every day. We go over the day’s conditions, if we’ve got rips or high/low tide, south swell, surf is this surf is that, but in that same conversation we talk about hey; “Clean the Beach”. Don’t be afraid to pick up other people’s trash, cigarette butts, pick it up, you can put on gloves or whatever to stay clean, but do your part because we talk about how we don’t like how out-of-control the beaches have gotten with the trash that is left behind. Plastic bottles and such, I say to the kids “Hey do you want to surf in a bunch of trash or do you want to surf in the beautiful blue ocean?” We teach the kids that they are “Ocean Ambassadors”. You are going to love to surf, go diving, paddle boarding, fishing or whatever it is but you are also going to be a steward of the Ocean, you are going to help protect it, clean it, and be an advocate and a spokesperson for it. If you are out there and you see a friend throw their trash out the window, or leave their trash on the beach, you’re going to say hey can you guys do me a huge favor let’s pick this all up, not being argumentative or mean, just be positive about it. Teach by example, if you do it others will too. We see whales and dolphins, sometimes the kids go out and make rafts, putting together 15 or 20 boards, and all stand on it together and watch the dolphins. Growing up at the beach you often take that for granite, but often people don’t realize I get a lot of kids from other countries, other states, and it might be the first time they’ve ever been to the beach, and to them that is like one of the most amazing things ever! We try to remember that we are blessed to be from here (Malibu), and grow up here…we have all these amazing and beautiful things to have in our lives…it’s nice to remember how very special that is. Awareness of life in the Ocean helps these kids to grow up with and develop their allegiance to the environment. You see it; you come down here after a big weekend and you see trash all over the place. A lot of the time the kids are bummed, and it becomes a teaching moment. Let’s do a little extra and take care of the beach. We learn “pack out what you brought in” and even take a little more. We talk about lifestyle, being healthy, using sunscreen, having fun doing it but still teaching important lessons along the way. My theory for camp is “water-time”, I want everybody in the water as much as we can but we do spend time everyday on Ocean safety. I want my kids to know about rip currents and how to get out of one. They know what a lateral current is, they know basic stuff that makes their time at the beach safe for them and their families.
JR: When you start to add up how many groups of kids you’ve graduated from your camp for so many years, averaging 3-5 years each, that’s a lot of people! Tell us about some of the Malibu Makos Stars and what kind of influence working here for you has affected their character? TC: Last year I had my first 2nd generation kid…his Dad was a camper. This is my 24th summer. Probably over all those years I’ve probably employed 500 local Malibu kids. I’ve also been able to turn out lifeguards, either before they worked for me or after. 30-40 LA County or State Lifeguards have been apart of my camp in some way. I’ve grown up here and I feel like I’ve done something that’s an asset to the community and something that I can be proud of. I was born in Malibu and grew up here, went to school in the 80’s, graduated from Santa Monica High School. The 70’s and 80’s was the greatest time in Malibu in my opinion. Change is part of the equation but the old Malibu where you could ride your horse on the beach and ride a motorcycle as a kid…but you know that’s society in general not just Malibu. Those kinds of freedoms we had and the community sense of Malibu is not what it used to be. I think the people have changed. When I grew up out here it was just very normal, there was some wealth but it wasn’t the level we know now. Friends that have been away for awhile come back and say…”I don’t remember all these gates and high walls”, but again it’s not really just Malibu, it seems to be the way the world is going.
BODY OF WORK I’ve traveled a lot, especially to beach places and all these great beach towns have developed centers, and we’ve never done that so it always seems something is amiss here. It’s still a young city trying to figure out how to govern itself. The name Malibu has been so sold and marketed but then when people come, and they wonder…where is it? The rugged beauty is incredible and nobody ever disputes that. I’m always stoked to turn people on to the mountains, the hiking, biking and the beaches. JR: Some of your graduates come back to teach at the camp, some become pros in different sports like surfing, and others even go on to become Malibu Public Servants like our up-coming Mayor. TC: Skylar Peak is awesome, I’m really proud of him. I always knew he was going to do something like that because he was a very smart kid. He was always building relationships, always had lots of friends, was organized and a hard worker. I’ve had kids join the military and do really well. They go on to serve our country, which to me is the ultimate sacrifice, so I’m very proud of those people. All the people who became lifeguards that have come through my program are awesome. A wide array of professionals, like doctors and what’s really cool is I have graduated kids that go on to study Marine Biology and this is where they got the initial stoke and excitement about that, here at camp. One of the things that I try and do is provide an unbelievable experience but it’s also a school of life skills; like how to respect others, because that’s what the Ocean teaches you. At camp if you listen to what we are teaching you, you’ll have a great experience, but if you don’t you are going to get yourself into trouble. The ocean doesn’t care how many facebook friends you have or what kind of car your parents drive. Especially at Zuma (beach), I was a lifeguard here for 8 years, and I learned first hand the safety aspects and that makes my camp different from other ones because we stress ocean safety. I hire pro surfers and lifeguards for the camp but they also have to be high character people too. I’m very cognoscente of who I present to the kids as role models. No bad attitudes or bad language, I want all the parents to be glad there kids are here with us. Follow Malibu Makos: MalibuMakos.com facebook.com/malibumakossurfclub twitter.com/MalibuMakos1

BUI SUSHI: For those of you who thought Nobu was the “be seen” spot in Malibu - think again. Malibuites pefer hip to haute when it comes to their saki and sushi, making Bui Sushi the real local scene. Located in the heart of town, Bui made the prefect backdrop for a soiree of sushi ,sake and socializing hosted by 90265 Magazine’s. lifestyle editor Barrie Livingstone. - CW
Sushi, Saki and Socializing by Barrie Livingstone
Raw fish! Ewh! For those of us who harken from a time when the sound and thought of eating Raw, uncooked fish was positively vile and a time when Sushi was labeled as a bizarre and exotic fad food meant only for jet set, Nouveau Riche Manhattan-ites and Tokyo dwellers. Today sushi is a part of our lives. Made in super markets and found in strip malls from the valley to suburban middle-America. It is still revered and celebrated at high end sushi bars on a global level, where the cool and the chic enjoy its mouth-watering taste, magnificent textures and constant allure. Everyone has a story of their favorite sushi bar. My first exposure to Sushi was in London’s trendy Soho village back in 1987. I was scouring the streets for the latest Boy London T-shirt when I happened upon a sushi bar, I felt the excitement and the rush of eating raw fish. I was immediately drawn in and had my first virgin taste of what has now become a staple food in my life that I can’t imagine living without. Our dear friends at Bui Sushi treated 90265 Magazine to a delightful Sushi & Saki pairing on a gorgeous light filled early evening.

Gigi Jeffers also graced us with her vivacious yet demure presence. Without her knowledge and expertise Malibu-ites could not get anything built. By far the star Malibu plans processor. Gigi just gets it and she gets it done. Another perfect ending, to another perfect day, in the place we all call home. Ashley Wells Lewis, Sara Levy, Laura Byford

Fireball Tim on driving celebs around Malibu in pretty rad rides...
“HELL YES BABY!”
Like Malibu, the Car Culture Scene is very diverse. And we here in the Bu get to see cool cars in many ways. I'm Fireball Tim (Yes, my legal name...) and each month I'll be bringing you some awesome car goodness surrounding the different cultures that have manifested over the decades. Whether it's Hot Rods, Customs, Classics, Concept Cars, Bikes, Trikes and anything on wheels, I guarantee you’ll see the latest, greatest and most badass...est. (Pretty sure that's a word now.) When I was a kid, I had a major dilemma in choosing my favorite car, so I decided early on that I would just love all of them. As a result, I have a new car delivered to my house every week, fully gassed, to do whatever I want with... and I do. I shoot episodes, do events, write articles like this and share what's cool about each ride. Car companies know - and love - that we are car maniacs here in Malibu. I'm very grateful to 90265 Magazine for asking me to come on board to share my love for driving as I've been blessed to have been on the car culture scene for the last 40 years. I starting as a Hot Wheels/Corgi/Matchbox Collector as a squirt, then to a young designer with ambitions for slick forms, then to designing over 400 vehicle projects for movies and finally to my own TV Show called "5Minute Drive." I get to scoot celebs around Malibu in awesome rides! Hell yes, baby! But I also get to spread the love of cars through Kid's Books, Toys and many other neato items that help to keep the love of cars alive and well. (Yes, I used the word "neato." It's right up there with Bitchin', Totally Rad & Zoiks... and that's how I roll.) I even get to host the Automoto International Film Festival for the Pebble Beach Concours in Monterey. So cool. Just proves that if you give LOVE, you get LOVE. So be on the lookout for my Carbon Fiber Tahoe here in the Bu. I may be doling out Chocolate or just having car conversations with cool Malibuites, spreading the love of wheels across the planet. We're the Automotive Trailblazers for the world, so it's our duty to spread the badassness. Join me. www.fireballtim.com Twitter: @fireballtim Instagram: @fireballtim

BODY OF WORK From Malibu to Montauk:
CRUSHING on both COASTS Frankie Harrer and Quincy Davis. Two girls + two coasts = one love: SURFING. These two first bonded four years ago while competing on the amateur circuit surfing the NSSA and Surfing America contests. They were also members of the US Surf team The newfound firendship quickly blossomed into bi-coastal besties. They do what all girls their respective ages (16 and 19) secretly wish they could. It’s the stuff that dreams are made of. Chasing waves with bikinis as their uniform. How lucky are we to have scored a sneak peak of their recent trip to Tahiti?! Surf legend Raimana Van Bastolaer, sounded the alarm as I was at the Harrer family Malibu home listening in on Frankie’s upcoming cover feature interview with icon Sam George. A serious swell was on the way. With Frankie in Malibu and Quincy back in Montauk they headed straight to the airport with big barrels on their agenda. Frankie’s home break is Malibu - a pretty tough line up when you are beating out a bunch of boys for the best waves, and Quincy has her hands full with Montauk’s unpredictable, but rewarding breaks - but tackling Teahupoo on a tow swell and surfing there in general is something you dont see many girls doing.. But then again, Frankie and Quincy aren’t just any girls. The ocean is their office and they helped us gain a unique perspective on paradise. Our director of Surf Content, a seasoned veteran of photographing these types of swells offered “My first thoughts after seeing the photos of Frankie on those bombs was these could be the biggest waves a 16 year old girl has ever ridden at Teahupoo.” “I’ve known Frankie since she was a skinny 12 year old surfing in Indonesia and I have shot with Quincy on the north shore, so I know how good they both are. But they handled this swell in Tahiti and that’s just a whole new level of guts and performance - - -.” So when you see them hanging out at Zuma or Terrace, remember, they are not your average girl.s and they don’t hang out with hipsters.. They are harcore surf sensations poised to change the world of Women’s Surfing. #crusingonbothcoasts Folow Frankie: @frankieharrer Follow Quincy: @quincydavis photos by Morgan Maassen
