Stoked On | Indoek Venice Issue

Our good friends at INDOEK just released The Indoek Venice issue - the first in a series of large format (11 x 17), newsprint city guides which highlight their favorite surf towns around the globe. There's an awesome 10-page photo essay by Vissla photographer Kenny Hurtado.

Surf culture has always been rooted in local surf scenes all over the world. Surf tribes who pay homage to their local breaks on a regular basis feed off each others influence and from the community in which they live. These scattered surf communities give coastal towns a certain unique character and push the culture at large to progress and evolve. Venice is of course no exception. Located in the heart of coastal Los Angeles, it is centrally located to many world class waves and is drenched in rich and colorful history, characters and innovation. From Abbott Kinney’s dream to it’s own demise, the birth of skate culture with the Dogtown crew out of a beach ghetto, to now being home to a gaggle of tech companies and startups dripping with excessive wealth, Venice is truly a unique and eclectic surf town with no shortage of stories to be told.

The Venice issue is 84 pages of unique editorial content that features interviews with Dogtown legend Skip Engblom by Trace Marshall (Brothers Marshall), Venice-born pro surfer Rick Massie by WSL commentator and surf legend Strider Wasilewski, Chad Marshall of Mollusk Surf Shop, Surfing Cowboys, Lone Wolfs, Deus Ex Machina, among others. The issue is also packed with beautiful photo essays from the likes of Kenny Hurtado, David Black, Peter Karnig, Kassia Meador and illustrations by Ty Williams.
