WOUNDED KNEE NEWS – Jim Murphy and Woundedknee Skateboards descended upon Pine Ridge, South Dakota in Lakota Country to spread the freedom of skateboarding to the Pine Ridge Reservation. Smithsonian TV was along to cover the Lakota Skate Culture for a documentary called “Native Skate Culture in America.” Wounded Knee is also teaming up with Jeff Ament from Pearl Jam to work on a signature deck with proceeds going towards another reservation skatepark in the works in Montana. The Stronghold Society would like to give a major shout out to Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam for his awesome support to build this first PHASE ONE plan of the WK4-Directions Skateparks. Jeff’s heart and continued support of the Stronghold Society’s Live Life Call To Action Campaigns is a huge asset to making this all possible. The Tony Hawk Foundation Board of Directors chose the Pine Ridge Skatepark as one of its top recipients with a 10,000-dollar grant. Board Members Chris Sacca and Ben Harper then each personally pledged an additional 5,000 dollars to ensure the Lakota-youth skatepark achieved its funding goal, and to add more support for this critical project. strongholdsociety.org and woundedkneeskateboards.net

SHORT BOARD REVOLUTION – The Short Board Revolution at the California Heritage Museum – It was a night where surfing’s most exceptional and elusive personalities, gathered beneath the twilight in a candle lit garden to make prank calls, talk story and drink the open bar dry. The Shortboard Revolution grand opening was everything you wanted to see and know about the transformation of an era, attitude and lifestyle. The California Heritage Museum displayed a truly authentic quiver of surfboards put together under one roof and led the pioneers of the sport into a night of reminiscing. With a live ukulele playing in the background, stories began to emerge and the real history of the sport was given life once again. As the candles were blown out and the tables dismantled, the garden was filled with laughter as old friends and legends claimed waves and flipped skateboards in the grass, and showed that in the core of surfing, the revolution has proved that not a lot has changed. The soul remains. The Short Board Revolution features the surfboards that changed surfing from the Gidget era “Malibu Chip” longboards to the high-flying aerial performance boards of today. Showcasing Surf Design from 1967-1984, the show held at the California Heritage Surf Museum will run from August 18, 2011 through May 6th, 2012. Roll out to the show. web.mac.com/calmuseum/

SEA OF DARKNESS shares the story of Mike Boyum originally from Maui, Hawaii and his cohorts as they seek the best waves in the Indian Ocean while taking risk in the high stakes of smuggling. The enigmatic Boyum was instrumental in establishing the world known surf spot Gland. His devil may care attitude and his quest of surfing the best waves, made a life of uncertainty and danger. During that time some of the most talented surfers were drawn to Boyum’s surf camp and took on his life style of living on brown rice and psychedelics. The dark side of the history of surfing had been talked about in the past, but this film brings to light the mystical and the mystery of some of the highlighted wave riders of the 1970’s. Rory Russell, Bob McKnight, Greg Noll and many others are featured in the film that had been a part of surfing the early waves of Indo. Director, Michael Oblowitz is a lifelong surfer, originally from South Africa who in most cases is a feature action filmmaker is ecstatic on the film’s success.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ocfMdhIuB4 L
