Created in partnership with designer Heather Heron and real estate company Safehouse Collective, CASA SHELTER HALF is a place to come together. A house at the beach, a personal residence for someone visiting town, an intimate location to host a dinner or meet for a special occasion. And what’s best: it’s unique and revolving selection of products you can purchase. 

7/18 - 'The Impossible Project'. In 2008 Florian 'Doc' Kaps and André Bosman meet at the closing party of the Polaroid factory in Enschede, in The Netherlands, and devised a plan to save Polaroid-format instant photography. Their aim was simple: to save 200 million Polaroid instant cameras from becoming utterly useless.

4/15 - The Flight of the Frenchies - Takes your breath away

02/15 - Nahanni Reforestation book project from our friends Benji and Nahanni.


1/10 - Every now and then, a person with spectacular and undeniable talent breaks through. Driven by a cauldron of ability, and in spite of their circumstances, they rise to the top of their chosen fields and enter our collective consciousness. We use their tale as emotional guide posts that unite and inspire us, codifying their spot in history.

1/5 - The beautiful new Rich Pavel board hanging on the wall in the living room at CASA from our Venice neighbor Deus Ex Machina.

1/10 - Whenever I hear the name Giacomo Agostini, I remember my grandmother, and how when I was a kid, every time she saw me with a motorcycle helmet, she would alway say: "Mi sembri Agostini" (You look like Agostini). My grandmother was not a motorcycle racing fan, it's just that Agostini, in Italy in the 70's was a  household name. He was a super star in a way that perhaps no one in motorcycle racing has since matched, not even Valentino Rossi “The Doctor” 

8/27 - Best waves in Malibu in perhaps 30 years and Laird Hamilton and Allen Sarlo shot the pier. They make it look easy on this video but up close seeing massive waves crash through the pilings has a different effect.

8/5 – Brand Profile: Aether. Making technical gear with a tailored fit, Aether has been with us from the start. Learn more about our beginnings here.
