Now on view at Gagosian in New York is the exhibition The Fletcher Family: A Lifetime in Surf, celebrating the soon-to-be published tome of the same title by Rizzoli. The legendary surf and skate dynasty that is the Fletcher family – Herbie and wife Dibi, their sons Christian and Nathan, and grandson Greyson – has been an institution in the action sport culture for decades, with an influence that extends beyond to the worlds of fashion, music, streetwear, and art.

Spanning fifty years of epic stories, photographs, personal ephemera and memorabilia, The Fletcher Family: A Lifetime in Surf is a visual memoir of this immensely colorful “first family” of surfing. Dibi narrates each chapter, accompanied by personal anecdotes about the family from notable contributors such as artist Julien Schnabel, photographer Bruce Weber, surfers Gerry Lopez and Kelly Slater, and the son of one of Vans founders, Steve Van Doren.

In addition to selected imagery featured in the book, Gagosian has installed artworks by Herbie Fletcher called Wrecktangles. These large sculptures have been made from the surfboards ridden — and broken — by the greatest contemporary surfers at the Banzai Pipeline in Hawaii. The board theme recurs in the Wall of Disaster series, which feature masses of skateboards mounted to the wall in anarchic accumulations. Similar to their surfboard counterparts, they form a cacophony of logos and images. Read More

 

Change Your Mind, Change Your Body

 

YOUR EDITOR FEELING THOSE SUMMER VIBES!

 
Elite athletes eat to fuel their bodies for optimal performance and inherently understand the concept that food is fuel. They generally don’t eat something just because it tastes good. They train their bodies like machines, and are not putting bad gas in the tank. Many of the rest of us, however, have gotten away from this basic concept. TV commercials tantalize with images of irresistible fat, sugar, and calorie-laden foods. We order what is most delicious on the menu. We fuel our mouths, but not our bodies.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if we all had the performance driven motivation of these athletes? What if it were effortless? For those trying to lose weight, it’s generally thought to be a matter of willpower to resist those foods that have put on the pounds. But what if those foods had no appeal, because not eating them felt so much better that eating them?

I recently shifted to a Paleo diet, which includes meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, and nuts — but no dairy and no grains. That means no bread, which I would have considered impossible a few months ago. But when replaced with delicious and satiating healthy fats like nuts, avocado, and coconut, the temptation has kind of disappeared — especially when my body has leaned out using its fat stores instead of sugar for fuel.

5 Simple Fixes!

 

 

Training hard and not seeing the results you want? Got an event coming up and a dress you wanna rock? Been carrying around some extra lbs. and finally ready to drop them? We want to help! Yes, exercise is critical to having the body you want, but diet is just as important, and sometimes 5 simple fixes is all it takes. I found that out with the help of our STYLE OF SPORT contributing nutrition editor, Sarah Wragge, and you can too!

Thinking I ate pretty clean, but wondering why my stomach had the jiggles despite daily exercise, I asked Sarah to take a look at my diet. Our in-demand holistic nutritionist has a packed roster of clients she has helped to attain their fitness goals. Expecting a pat on the back for my diet, instead I got, “OMG… you eat so much sugar!”

“What??” I replied. Unbeknownst to me, what I thought was my healthy fruit and rice cake snacking was like sugar dosing and carbo loading all day. With some simple substitutions like adding more healthy fats such as avocado and nuts; swapping dairy for plant based alternatives like almond milk and coconut yogurt; and replacing my fruit dessert with dark chocolate (yes!), those abs I worked so hard for started to pop — and with no feeling of deprivation because I was eating satiating and nutritious foods.

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN! We are offering 2 lucky readers the chance to have Sarah make over their diets with 5 simple fixes. All you’ve got to do is sign up and enter to win! The deadline is July 28th. Winners will be selected at random, and announced July 30th. Good luck!

Coming off the success of its skateboard auction earlier this year, 20 Years of Supreme, Sotheby’s has partnered with another hypebeast brand in the upcoming auction, Stadium Goods: The Ultimate Sneaker Collection Online.

Paddle For Pink

 

 

TEAM SOS AT THE HAMPTONS PADDLE FOR PINK

On Saturday, August 3rd, the 8th annual Hamptons Paddle for Pink took place in Sag Harbor, NY. The donations raised by paddlers in this Stand Up Paddleboard race went to benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), which is dedicated to ending that diagnosis of breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF funded research has played a critical role in every major breakthrough in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and survival.

The Hamptons Paddle for Pink was founded by Maria Baum — a Sag Harbor resident, mother of four, and breast cancer survivor. Maria is an investor and entrepreneur who created Tutto Il Giorno and Dopo La Spiaggia restaurants, as well as Splash Mixers, following a successful career as a derivatives trader on Wall Street. Maria discovered Stand Up Paddleboarding shortly after being diagnosed with breast cancer and found it to be a therapeutic outlet during her treatment and subsequent recovery. Read More

Lateral Objects

 

 

Production designer Stefan Beckman is highly sought-after by the world’s most prominent fashion brands, creating the sets and stages for such designers as Louis Vuitton, Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, and Bottega Veneta – just to name a few. Of note as well are his installations for adidas at Hypefest and ComplexCon — in addition to his editorial work for such publications as Vogue Italia, W, Love, and Interview.

Stefan’s latest project is one of his own creation, a home design line called Lateral Objects, which he has launched just in time for summer with a line of vibrant and sporty beach towels. It is just the first product in a series of home objects soon to come that will include beach umbrellas, glassware, trays, candles, matches, games, and more.

We caught up with Stefan to find out about his inspiration for Lateral Objects, as well as the hot summer pop-up he has curated, Heatwave, now open at Barney’s.

STYLE OF SPORT: How did Lateral Objects come to be?

STEFAN BECKMAN: I’ve always loved home design — furniture and accessories. I used to have a store in Soho called Property, and it just seemed like a natural thing for me to do. I love to challenge myself, and a lot of times I’ll take on projects I’ve never done. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t, but at least I’ve tried. I think the idea for the line is similar. It’s a broad category. I plan to do furniture and accessories, but if there is something interesting and inspiring to me, I can just do it.  Read More
