The Archives: Giovanni Angelone
Words: Dustin Strong Photos: Giovanni Angelone Where you’re coming from can be just as important as where you’re going. We recently had a chat with Giovanni Angelone on his life in Southern California, why he relocated from Texas, and why his parents are the most inspiring people in his life. If ever we were to take our days here in Southern California for granted, surely Gio could serve us up a good reminder and dose of perspective. His view on this place is just as refreshing as his publication, Waversons.  California by way of Texas. They say we never leave our roots behind us, how have they shaped your work and aesthetic? What have your brought to our sandy shores from Texas? Well I would say more than anything from Texas would probably be a work ethic type of a thing,

For The Love Of Friday 4/21/17
A round-up of what’s stoked us this week on Instagram. From epic waves on the other side of the world, sunbathing babes, boards, dogs, road trips, outer space, and total mayhem.

Beauty Beneath the Ruins
Words: Corina Barnick Photos: Corina Barnick & Adam Walker When it comes to Cuba, pretty much every assumption about the island country – its decaying buildings, vintage cars, rum and cigars – from what I can tell, are all true. But what you don’t hear about is how deeply beautiful the place is, or how special its people are — every single one of them with a story to tell. Some friends and I were fortunate enough to spend some time there earlier this year, taking advantage of the first available direct flights from LAX to Havana. It took less than five hours to arrive in the Caribbean but as soon as we landed, we felt like we had time-traveled. The sun was setting just as we stepped down the stairway from our plane into the hot, tropical tradewinds. A dog toyed

Authenticity with Legi Alonso
Words: Dustin Strong Photos: Jose Alberto Prieto Social media, and in larger terms the internet, has become the social norm for creating and branding one’s self in all aspects of culture. Surfing included. Instagram clips, web edits, and entire surf films being released online only and for little to no profit now dominate the industry. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to come across humble, talented surfers and artists who believe that there is value in creating content for core, dedicated, and like-minded people. This is especially true for us here at RAEN. We truly appreciate the kinds of people who embody this idea of authenticity. Our new friend from across the pond, Legi Alonso, represents this genuine idea of modesty in an industry controlled by 15 second Instagram cl
