Surf Fridays!

This edition of Surf Fridays! is all about real surf style, when it comes to the home. I subscribe to C Magazine (which is all about California) and was ecstatic to find this awesome section called New Wave Surf Shacks. The intro reads: For a style-minded set of surfers living on the coast from San Diego to Ventura, a deep passion for riding waves spills over into the way they live. Produced and photographed by Todd Saunders, a dude who learned to surf in Half Moon Bay and now directs surf and beach culture TV.

Make sure you click on the photos to make them larger.

Robin Kegal has a super minimalistic style but obviously has an eye for really cool beautiful things. Notice the blue vase and green bowl and rainbow cup on his kitchen counters.

Look at the cool dudes, C.J. Nelson and Alex Knost. I like their style and the fact that Knost is an artist. It's definitely a bachelor pad, notice the collection of vintage Playboy covers in their living room.

My dream home is just like Randy Hild's (the guy putting his surfboard away in that cool quiver contraption under his house). He's an EVP of Marketing at Quicksilver and he has decorated his home so gorgeously.

And in the last set of photos, check out the many endless details and fascinating art in Steve Bojorquez's home. He had to stop surfing due to bad shoulders, but has transferred that passion into his music and his found-art installations. Wow, dude. Notice the pink Trophy Queen bag that must belong to his girlfriend. Can anyone find it? As the owner of one of Jenny's bags, I highly recommend them to all the hipster ladies out there.

And for those of you who like more of a clean, laid back style with a touch of surf meets Pottery Barn and that San Francisco design-y vibe thrown in, check out the cool compositions that sfgirlbybay put together. Thanks to Ana for sending that my way.

Have a great weekend everyone! xoxo
