Xavier Rudd Biography
Fusing hypnotic ceremonial rhythms into tender and breezy folk songs, Xavier Rudd creates a vibe and tone that is unmistakably earthy and excitingly expansive. Eastern Surf Magazine says, “He doesn’t create music; music just comes through him.” Paste Magazine offers, “He combines soft, melodic vocals with unique instrumentals to create a sound that is all at once inspiring and heartbreaking.” Perfectly representative of his mesmerizing ability to combine rhythm, melody and sounds from nature, the first single, “Follow the Sun” ebbs and flows hypnotically, with a lilting guitar line and a flitting harmonica that propels you forward in a breezy haze. By incorporating aboriginal chants into the fabric of the title track, Xavier constructs an epic goosebump-inducing song that soars in otherworldly bliss, cathartically crashing into a whispered hush.
Hailing from Germany but a true world citizen, Yeshe has explored all corners of the globe in developing a rich tapestry of sound and a vivid collage of musical culture. He embodies the musical nomad, drawing heavily from his African teachings and expressing his music with a sophisticated style and distinctly cosmopolitan flavour.

At the news stand the other day and noticed this cover shot on Coast Magazine of a surfer holding a very odd looking surfboard in which it reminded us of a photo we had taken of Eli Mirandon in 2007.
The artist name is Robin Johnson and the painting was done in 2008 and from the facial features and the board design we are sure this is Eli Mirandon.
“ART BREWER: SURF EVOLUTION”
40-YEAR RETROSPECTIVE OF THE LEGENDARY SURF PHOTOGRAPHER
Exhibition: June 8 – 30, 2012
Reception: Thursday, June 14, 6 – 8pm
New York, May 1, 2012 – School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents “Art Brewer: Surf Evolution,” a retrospective celebrating the work of legendary surf photographer Art Brewer, who has spent four decades documenting and shaping surf culture around the globe. The exhibition is presented by the Arts Abroad Program at SVA, where Art Brewer teaches a course in Action Surf Photography in Rincon, Puerto Rico. “Art Brewer: Surf Evolution” will be on view at the SVA Gallery, 209 East 23 Street, New York City, from June 8 – 30, 2012.
Often described as “the court painter” for the world’s surfing elite, Art Brewer is known for his mastery of the numerous technical and physical challenges involved in surf photography and the strikingly expressive quality of his images, which some have described as “portals to a vastly improved universe.” Photographer C.R. Stecyk (Dogtown and Z-Boys) explains in his essay accompanying the exhibition, “Art has thoroughly examined the sport of surf riding with an unparalleled sensitive ferocity…an underlying introspection is seamlessly incorporated into his works via a technical mastery which comes across as easy and elegant.”
Curated by photographers Malcolm Lightner and Michelle Mercurio, the exhibition will include over 150 images from Brewer’s archive, made from the mid-1960s to the present, including many never-before-exhibited works. The selected work ranges from intimate portraits of surf legends like Corky Carroll, Tom Curren, Wayne Lynch, Marc Occhilupo and Kelly Slater, to evocative landscapes and waterscapes from around the world, to the dynamic images of surf riding for which Brewer has achieved international renown. The exhibition draws out Brewer’s pivotal role within the changing culture of the sport over the last 40 years. As C.R. Stecyk remarks, “Brewer functions as both the initial creator of objects of desire and as an authoritative recorder of the negative aftermath of a culture in transition.”
A largely self-taught photographer who once studied with Ansel Adams, California native Art Brewer began his photo career as a teen shooting local Laguna Beach surfers and freelancing for Surfer magazine. He subsequently served as staff photographer, darkroom artist and photo editor for the magazine until the mid-1980s. Since then Brewer has been traveling around the world in search of waves and the surfers that chase them. His portfolio spans photojournalism, portraiture and fine art photography in addition to commercial location work.
Brewer’s photographs have been exhibited worldwide, including at the Earl McGrath Gallery in New York, the Annenberg Space for Photography, the San Jose Museum of Art, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Laguna Art Museum in California, the Melbourne Beach Contemporary Museum of Art in Melbourne Beach, Florida and the Museum of Contemporary Art in São Paulo, Brazil. His images have appeared in hundreds of magazines including GQ, Rolling Stone, Sports Illustrated, Esquire and Playboy. Over the course of his career, Brewer has done over 35 covers for Surfer magazine. His books include Masters of Surf Photography: Art Brewer (The Surfers Journal, 2002) and Bunker Spreckels: Surfing’s Divine Prince of Decadence (1949-1977) (Taschen Books, 2007).
Awesome photos, Jack. Your pics pump me up.
I want to start taking action shots of my friend Cameron who’s a crazy good surfer but I don’t have a waterproof camera. In your opinion, what is a good surf camera that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg?
Thank you for your time.
joe, thanks for the compliment. i first suggest the canon 60d ($899) with a 5fps (frames per second) as you would need your body to be that quick to capture the action. as far as a water housing goes i use the spl’s which are made here in san diego and will run you around $1,400. all the best, jack
