Southern California snapshots. Jan 2014.
Spent the last week or so in Southern California (visiting some new potential retailers!). One night, we arrived in LA around 8pm for a concert, and realized we had nowhere to stay the night. We hopped on our phones, and checked Airbnb, and the first listing that came up was this Malibu Airstream trailer. It seemed like a no brainer, so without very much discussion, we booked it for the night. We spoke to the owner, who told us that the airstream would be unlocked for our arrival.
We went to the show, then headed to our new home for the night in the hills of Malibu. Following the owners directions to “speed up before the steep gravely hill so you don’t start to slide” the reality of our accommodations started to sink in. Totally remote. Dirt roads. No sign of any other humans. However, after miles of windy roads, we found ourselves on the top of a mountain, with a perfect little Airstream trailer waiting for us, lit only by the full moon that night. The surrounding 360 degree view of the Malibu hills and Pacific Ocean in the distance left us with nothing to say. In the morning we woke up, again, speechless.
A perfect reminder of the importance of spontaneity.

Friend of SALT’s, Will Warasila spends as much time in the water as he does on land. Perfectly imperfect, his work rarely gets retouched, but often so perfectly nails the feeling of what its like to be in the water.

John John gives a tour of his new North Shore compound… a nice reminder that there are teenagers with beach houses, and you’re barely able to pay your studio rent. Happy Monday.
