There is No Room to Stumble at Shipsterns

James McKean was 14 when he saw the first Shipstern's stairs descend, now he's one of the best out there. It takes a certain type of personality and or upbringing to find amusement in surfing cold, mutilated waves. For most, boardies, sand and soft walls will do just fine.

Tyler, the Creator Tiny Desk Concert

Tyler, The Creator's Tiny Desk performance was a first for many reasons. It was the Los Angeles rapper's first time performing at our offices, but moreover, it was the Tiny Desk's first nighttime performance, a special request from Tyler and his team in order to professionally light the "stage" themselves.
