• Montauk Surf Journals with Tony Caramanico

    9 JUN. 2024 · On a bright sunny day at Gilgo Beach in 1963, a 13 year old Tony Caramonico remembers paddling out and catching the white water as the wave broke behind him. The unparalleled sensation of riding his first wave ushered in a sense of purpose and destiny. Surfing would be his North Star. A lot of people were surfers at the time and life got in the way for many of them. Tony was damn hell sure  life would not get in his way.  What would follow is a life filled with enough adventure and incredible waves to fill 10 lifetimes.  Surfing has been his singular obsession for over 60 years. Tony is a legend among legends. An East Coast Hall of Famer, a 2x Greg Noll Da bull invitational champion, and became a pro surfer when others his age were giving up surfing. Beyond his surfing, Tony kept journals with collages, stories, and scraps for every day for decades. These creations have become a kaleidoscopic chronicle of his search for the perfect wave, from Montauk to Hawaii, South Africa to the Caribbean, and Indonesia to Japan. Eventually Tony transitioned to a respected artist with numerous shows and prints of his work.  His latest book by Damiani, 'Montauk Surf Journals' presents a stunning selection of Tony’s art representing his 60 years in and around surfing. The book takes readers on Tony’s journey through surfing as the world progresses through four decades of immense change. From his first wave in 1963, to living and working with Peter Beard at his home in Montauk, and endless days of perfect waves, Tony's unique, colorful visions shine through on the page. We are incredibly stoked to have Tony on as our guest for this episode of the Swell Season Surf Podcast.  To Purchase Tony's Book, Montauk Surf Journals, go to: https://www.damianibooks.com/en/collections/caramanico-tony You can Follow Tony Caramanico on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/tcmontauk/?hl=en The Swell Season Surf Podcast is recorded by The NewsStand Studio at Rockefeller Center in the heart of Manhattan and is distributed by The Swell Season Surf Radio Network.  For more information, you can follow https://www.instagram.com/swellseasonsurfradio/ on Instagram or go to our website: http://www.swellseasonsurf.com/  Music:  Song: Almost Cut My Hair Artist: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Album: Deja Vu

    29 MAY. 2024 · James Katsipis is a Montauk-born artist, known for his exceptional ocean photography and stunning visual art. Over two decades ago, Katsipis began traveling around the world shooting and exploring distant shores as an adventure and surf photographer.

What follows is an in depth conversation with someone who has made many strides to get where he is and now feels comfortable in his own skin. Our conversation wanders from his evolving attitude over the recent popularity of his home town, to his technique and how he handles the ups and down of life.

  • Finisterre with Tom Kay

    17 MAY. 2024 · Finisterre which in latin: finis terrae; means 'end of the earth'. Is a brand that exists first and foremost to meet the needs of the cold water surfer both in and out of the water. People like to call them the UK version of  Patagonia but, I’d wager founder Tom Kay must have mixed feelings about those comparisons. To be compared to an industry leader can be flattering but, I imagine Tom believes that they have their own unique voice and story to tell that can differentiate the two. Tom Kay, the driving force behind Finisterre has been at the game for over 20 years, slowly building a great reputation for quality products that are sustainably minded. The brand has gained a cult following amongst surfers worldwide who I suspect feel underrepresented in the larger surf culture. Tom and his team are currently poised to make big moves in the coming years that will help to drive the surf world to think more sustainably. I was fortunate enough to have met Tom late last year at an event at their beautiful store in London through my mate Matt Bar of the Looking Sideways Podcast. Tom was extremely friendly and engaging. You could tell this was a very sharp but passionate person. Unfortunately, I had to leave shortly after meeting Tom but the few minutes I got to speak  with him, I felt like I could talk to him all night. I decided I needed to have him on the show. I’m excited  because we are fortunate enough to have Tom as our guest on this episode of the Swell Season Surf Podcast.  For more information on Finisterre, you can go to https://finisterre.com/en-us or follow them on instagram https://www.instagram.com/finisterre/ The Swell Season Surf Podcast is recorded by The NewsStand Studio at Rockefeller Center in the heart of Manhattan and is distributed by The Swell Season Surf Radio Network.  For more information, you can follow https://www.instagram.com/swellseasonsurfradio/ on Instagram or go to our website: http://www.swellseasonsurf.com/  Music:  Song: Cornwall My Home Artist: One & All Album: Fisherman's Friend

  • Wavemaker: Nick Hounsfield

    10 MAY. 2024 · Nick Hounsfield was introduced to surfing by his father Brian in the mid 1970s on his regular visits to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornwall in the United Kingdom. He has been an avid https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surfing ever since.Nick became an Osteopath by trade and founded a successful family business with this wife. But as time wore on and when Nick’s father passed away in the late 2000’s, he started to think about the world a little differently. He began to think about open spaces in nature and the healing aspects of engaging and being in nature. He started to realize that a lot of people's poor health was due to a number of things such as not exercising, not eating well, lack of connection to others, lack of nature connectedness  and so on… He set about trying to pull these different factors together and look at how he could solve some of these issues through one holistic vision. By chance this was around the same time that Wavegarden released a video of their first technology which would bring waves inland, for the first time. Nick had a eureka moment. And this was the start of his mythological quest to bring his concept of The Wave to the United Kingdom. It’s been a long journey for Nick, which involves every obstacle you can think of on his way to realizing his vision. Fundraising, permits, Global Pandemic, shaky economy, Brexit, and a stroke. But, Nick persevered and has succeeded in realizing his vision and pioneered a new business model while https://www.thewave.com/sustainability/ and offering an exceptional surf experience with a safe, inclusive space for all surfers.
