Welcome back to your monthly peek at everything Waveriders! The fall ASR show swung through our neck of the woods last week, giving us the opportunity to check out the latest and greatest in what our industry has to offer. Hanging out with friends both old and new is a hallmark of these shows, and several of our conversations strayed into a discussion of what all of us "action sports enthusiasts" choose to throw on our wall. The answers were actually pretty entertaining, and we've posted our favorites below. We'd also like to welcome up-and-coming painter Heather Brown and legendary Wilbur Kookmeyer creator Bob Penuelas to the site - we're truly stoked to have you aboard! 'Till next time, keep a glide in your stride and a dip in your hip and we'll catch ya'll next month.

Inside the Studio

Brady Mitchell   Mitchell

"I have a Darryl Mallard painting of a Tahitian morning dawn patrol. It reminds me of a perfect day and all the great trips I have taken to Tahiti. I have it prominently shown in the entry of my house. It is the first thing I see when I come home from a day on the Road."

Roger Cook cook

"As for prints and paintings we have a few around the home. The famous Greg Noll at Waimea shot as well as a lithograph of a Polynesian girl looking out to the ocean. However my favorite is a piece that a local artist; Dave Como painted P. B. Point for me, which I had a custom framed in bamboo by Bob Long."

Mark and Jackson Christy christy

"One of my favorite pieces is a 1917 Long Beach Pike Surf Rental Paipo Board. I met a guy whose family used to own the Pike and he had all of these old boards sitting around his yard and in some cases he actually used them to repair his fence. I tracked him down and rescued what hadn't rotted. My son Jackson has a Black Hobie Gun with full flames in his room. Not a good board for sunny days...."

Jeff Kelly Kelly

"One of my favorite pieces is called the "Endless Kiss." This is a piece that I bought from a homeless guy near the Roberto's on Carmel Mountain Rd. It's an incredible piece that is similar to the two faces or a vase optical illusion. This is a piece that I am always drawn to."

Doug Hosaka hosaka

"My favorite piece that I own was actually made by my daughter. It is a framed picture of Duke Kahanamoku in which she incorporated some Duke postcards with the commemorative stamps that were issued August 24, 2002 displayed in a Bamboo Frame. One of my other favorites is a vintage fruit box poster of "Hula Apples"; only instead of the hula girl this one has a woody in the background."

Gary Linden Linden

"Let's talk about what I have in my office because my wife and I have different tastes when it comes to decorating the house. In my office is a hand-painted 6'3" Linden short board with portrait of Lunada Bay near L.A. Anyone who knows the place knows how localized it is and I was fortunate enough to catch it on the biggest day of the year in 2005. This painting is my inspiration for shaping."

Matt Jones jones

"My collection consists mostly of prints I have had blown up from surf trips I have taken over the years. I have two in the living room that inspire me every time I see them. The first is a print of Frigates, a break in Fiji that I had blown up. The other is a turtle at Cloud Break that I got from the staff photographer at the surf camp that I was staying at. Both remind me of perfection."

Tal O'Farrel farrel

"Most of my house is done with a Tahitian theme to it. It is a relaxing place to be at the end of the day. However my favorite paintings I own are originals by Joe Wood from T.S.O.L. He painted me a 3X5 painting of the "Strange Love" album cover as well as a Johnny Cash print. Both are displayed in my office."

Off the lip

Both the grand and the intimate aspects of nature can be revealed in the expressive photograph. Both can stir enduring affirmations and discoveries, and can surely help the spectator in his search for identification with the vast world of natural beauty and the wonder surrounding him. .”
