Shot entirely on film with the use of mostly 1930s-1980s era equipment, the evocative images of Ryan Tatar give a unique, albeit slightly nostalgic, perspective of modern surf culture.
The last in a series of Scorpio based customs from Deus Canggu, this beach going blaster features an easy on/off surf-rack system built into the frame.
“Deus Canggu, the newest child of the Australian company Deus ex Machina, was started by a group of dedicated surfers who also happen to be passionate motorcycle enthusiasts. In this land of the flying scooter, they wanted an alternative.”

Surf photographer legend, LeRoy Grannis (Aug 12 1917 – Feb 3rd 2011).
Created with a large-format camera using a spontaneous and unpredictable historic wet-plate collodion technique widely used in 1860’s ( a “wet” instantaneous process that must be prepared and developed on location), the astonishing photographs by Joni Sternbach, of Long Island surfers in Montauk’s Ditch Plains, have a raw quality that echoes nineteenth-century traditions of anthropological photography.
Named after a point break in California and based in smokey old London, Swami’s Surf Company combines traditional artisan surfboard craftsmanship with hi-tech imagery. Bold graphics are printed onto silk and cut into the surface of the board which is then encapsualted within layers of resin to give striking depth to the visuals.
Great work from photographer Dane Peterson.
