My good friend and OG Bones Crew rider Jake Smith is taking a world tour. It is something all surfers talk about and are constantly planning like some sort of religious pilgrimage. Chicken scratch on important corporate documents at work is the backbone of these type of trips. Plan it, talk about it after a few cold cruisers, and when the time is right, just buy the fucking ticket and go. That's how it usually happens. Regardless, Jazz just sent it on his and I got to make his quiver. Let's take a look.
The first thing we decided upon was one consistent look for all three boards. We talked about something subtle yet noticeable. Jazz came up with the idea of a two tone rail band airbrush. He mocked it up and it looked rad. Here is some very important blueprint documents of what went down. Jazz's mock up to my mock up.
The next thing we talked about was deciding what boards to bring. Jazz was dead set on two things. Getting an exact replica of his current go to shortboard, his 6'0 super soaker, and a step up for big days. I convinced him to bring a Fish Taco, because it is important to surf a twin fin every few days.
Jazz and his Girlfriend Erin, will be traveling to Tahiti, New Zealand, Fiji, Australia, Singapore, Vietnam, and a couple islands around Indonesia. We will check in a few times during his venture with a Wheres Jazz post. Give a follow to their instagram @halfwayXsomewhere to keep up with things more closely.
