A big honor, considering the company we are in: NY Times, Washington Post, ABC News, the Daily Beast, etc. This couldn’t have been done without incredible teams (both OWOO, and Aquarius Reef Base), and an incredible story. Read about Mission Aquarius here, and watch the video series:

After establishing himself as one of the best in the surf stills game at a young age, Morgan Maassen went and created this new motion reel. Lovely ocean imagery, captured quirky moments, artful composition, breezy music, and a few pretty faces (guys and girls). This is your 3 minute break in the day. You’re welcome.
Aquarius Reef Base is an incredible resource for ocean exploration and understanding of our planet and we almost lost it. After budget cuts it was slated to be shut down, but after a ton of effort by numerous teams and individuals, to bring attention to the issue, new leadership has stepped in with funding to keep it open. While this is due to numerous factors, we’d like to think our team at One World One Ocean had a good deal to do with it.

As a reminder of my time on the other side of the surfing coin, living in the mountains, riding snow, I still occasionally get powder alerts from various ski resorts. It’s a little painful when we’ve had a long flat spell and I sit down at my laptop to see Snowbird got 20 inches last night. Especially when the water temp drops, the offshores blow cold out of the canyons, and the north swells have yet to show – it starts to seem like all the chilliness is for naught. But then a slide like this comes across the light box and it all makes sense – yes, we have our white winters here at the beach too.
