Matuse | TOMO 5/4/3

"The Tumo is named after the Buddhist meditation Technique where naked Monks sit in the snow, underneath a wet blanket, and dry-it-out with their own body heat. So jump into the coldest environments. The Tumo's got you covered even if you don't meditate." I just received what's sure to be the warmest suit I've ever owned... Pretty stoked on how it looks and feels. Product review to come in the very near future...

Come Hell Or High Water Premiere

Erica and I headed North for the evening to see Keith Malloy's new bodysurfing movie, Come Hell Or High Water yesterday. We caught a wonderful fish dinner at Fish 101 in Leucadia before heading in for the flick. Couldn't have been more stoked on how it turned out. Definitely a movie worth seeing/buying in the near future. We ran into Santa Barbara friend, Trevor Gordon right before it started rolling and was psyched to see him in a few scenes!
